  1. Beautiful banner at your site as well, I am reminded of some wall paintings by the Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, such as this one http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWNY4. You browse more murals of his at wahooart.com.

  4. We love your work! I recently purchased a print here in the States at an antique store that has two different views of the same horse head (above) from the Elgin Marbles. "Elgin Marbles" is clearly written on the bottom of the print, but we can't decipher the artist's name and are wondering whether it might be you. Did you ever do a red pencil drawing with two perspectives on the same horse head? If there is a way to send you a picture to confirm, please let me know. We love the print, and we are so curious about its origin.

    1. Hi Jill, It wasn't me! Unfortunately I can't be of much help in hunting down the artist either. I suspect the horse head might be up there with the most drawn artefacts in the world! If the artwork is a reproduction of a drawing then the artist is probably relatively famous. Or the drawing was used in a textbook as an example. The best I can suggest is that the artist is old and English. The marbles are usually referred to as the Parthenon Sculptures now, at least in England ;) Good luck and thanks for your kind comment, Greg
