Guest Book Entry by Allan Lichter

Bob, As long as we’ve known each other. I’ve never had the opportunity of viewing your work. I do love the uniqueness of the subject matter, technique and the tools used to achieve the intricate studies. The painstaking detail requires an enormous amount of patience. I also love the subtlety of how you introduce color into your compositions…knowing that they can also stand alone if done in 1 color – black with shades of gray. I can commiserate, as my personal and preferred style is using a crow quill pen with black India ink making intricate and time consuming line and cross hatching drawings of nature with an emphasis on trees, plants and rocks. I’m hoping I can make it to the gallery to see them first hand and of course it’s always a pleasure to chat with you if you’ll be there. Best Regards, Allan
