Revisiting: Halo I & II

In Art, News, Pen & Ink by Paul Soupiset

It’s strange to see a piece of art you’ve made years ago, having not seen it in person in the intervening years. Yesterday I was reacquainted with two such pieces.

In 2008 I crated up two large pen-and-ink drawings on gesso board and shipped them to Los Altos, California, where they have resided in the personal collection of dear friends Linda and Michael Toy. Yesterday I was able to see the pieces again in person, for the first time in years.

The two drawings are large, and I stitched together composite photographs of both last night.

Hover over each image for a magnifying glass:
