Napkin Series

Many years ago, I was sitting in a restaurant and while waiting for the food, I started drawing on the napkin. This has persisted from the 60s until today. I now have what constitutes a somewhat massive collection of these drawings. They have been done in many venues and in many locations including: Spain, Puerto Rico, Italy, and even in the home. The culmination of these drawings reached a certain strength in the series of 100 drawings which are an homage to Matisse and his love for variations on a theme.
