By Chance

I did this pastel drawing about 10 years ago. I used to draw from my sub-conscious. Starting off with squiggly charcoal lines and letting the images emerge. The balding man with the dark beard used to appear quite frequently. This particular drawing was once
in a show in Denver. At the opening a man asked me who the bearded man was. When I began to tell him how he just showed up in my drawings usually taking center stage or placing himself in the background, it was then that I realized it was him that I was speaking to. His name was Steve and whether he places himself in center stage or in the background, we've been good friends ever since.

Hmmm... very interesting. I think it's neat how you had a reoccurring character.
