VERN SCHWARZ - Bike Break
This is my first contribution for The Flying Moleskins, and the recipient of this oil on paper, is that very fine gentleman and wonderful artist, Dean Haven. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dean the other day, and he is a very engaging fellow who is great fun to compare notes with. Dean, I hope you like it, and I hope it folds well (after it dries), and does all the right stuff to look good in your moleskin book. This is from a photo I took while in Germany, and I plan to do a couple more from this trip. So fellow moleskinners, if you'd like something along these lines, chime in now. By the way, I first sprayed the pages with Kamar varnish (thanks James Parker), and then gave it two coats of gesso.
