.....Why did I use a wooden figure in my prayer image for Memorial Day? Because it is the wooden coffin that brings back the dead, the final human house that contains its owner, the fallen unknown soldier of war!
...it encases a small part of that human body, or the unoccupied space in that coffin, it encases the prayer and remembrance that they are not forgotten and it encases a prayer of gratitude -s.wolk
I was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to my soft-edged pastel paintings of the hard action sports .
