On the Statue of Liberty 125th Anniversary
Artist and Miss Ludlow Searching for
Lady Liberty Drawings
After digging through my Studio I managed to located my pen and ink drawing series in tribute to our dear Lady Liberty...with of course the invaluable help of Miss Ludlow. Miss Ludlow and Kimba her younger sister are new additions to our family, left behind when our friend and downstairs neighbor Richard passed unexpectedly last month. Great sadness brought their joy into our lives. May he rest in Peace. He loved spy thriller novels by all the great names. His favorite was Robert Ludlum for which Miss Ludlum was named. A little was changed in the translation. She has all the requisite curiosity and doggedness of a Spy Master Novelist. Above all she is a Lady.

I began a series on the Statue of Liberty a year back to get not only into the spirit of Liberty but it's skin. As I was to find out in meditations and studies, many faces, many spirits, many bodies of all shapes, sizes, creed and languages have inhabited her all embracing cloak since her unveiling some 125 years ago in New York Harbor.
