Art Exposition

Can you name this artist?

I took this picture on one those moments when the sun was shining, yet it was also raining.

My Door Phase

This drawing was done in 1999. It's the back door to the church in the village of Holzen, Germany. I really like the shadows in this picture. I enjoyed drawing the stonework on the sidewalk. This was drawn when I slaved to get every detail correct - note the missing tile on the little roof covering. The original size is: 7.5x6 in. (19x15 cm).

This is a door of a small chapel in the cemetery in the town of Kandern, Germany. Like the one above, I really like the shadows in this drawing. You can see the "hint" of a sitting bench beside the door to the left. This was drawn in 2000 using a fine technical pen. Probably a Rapidograph .01. Both drawings were done on heavy, yet smooth, watercolor paper. The chapel door drawing original size is: 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 in. (16x11 cm).
