First, do you also feel that this gentleman is missing his pipe? I get the feeling his hands might be fidgeting without it. Perhaps it’s the feeling that he isn’t sitting still, or that his eyes are imploring me to hurry up and finish the drawing, so he can get on with his business. I don’t know. As with many of my drawings, the title comes from a moment of communion with the drawing. The drawings always tell me their title, when I quiet my mind and listen to them. This guy was shouting for his pipe!
Again, using dry pastels, I was able to get the feelings I love in expressionism and impressionism.
