"Drawing is to me a blessed 'yes' to many things which call me, count on me, hold me, and believe in me..."

A seminal moment in my development as a young artist occurred as an undergraduate student, while studying under my mentor, Howard Warshaw, who himself, was a disciple of Rico Lebrun.

It was my first week of working from the figure under Howard's watchful eyes. While attempting to polish a kneecap into submission, Howard came up from behind and scolded me..." Mr. Eanes, we are not here to make pretty pictures." Those words have resonated with me for over the last forty years.

I draw to make sense of things.

I draw to remember.

I draw to forget.

I draw to imagine the unimaginable.
