The Professor gets older

Election day. Who knows what the population will decide.
He turned 72. He is now considered old. How did that happen?
He spent the day teaching Byzantine art history...not his favorite period and teaching drawing . He also got to work on this picture. It is 48x60 and has been problematic since it's conception a few weeks ago. It has become something other than how it started.

This one strange picture. The Professor will let it rest for a while.


  1. Quite a metamorphosis over the weeks. I love seeing how the piece changes.

    Hope you had a Happy Birthday!

  2. Hi Earl:
    This is Mary, Marc Rosenthal's wife.We need to meet next he and I make a Houston trip! What I love about this painting is how three dimensional it is; it bursts out of its nonexistent frame. I look forward to seeing how it changes next.

  3. Hi Earl: This is Mary, Marc's wife. We have to meet the next time Marc & I are in Houston! What I love about this painting is how 3 dimensional it is; how it bursts out of the canvas. I look forward to seeing what happens next.
