Zorthian’s pencil

 

Zorthian would have been 100 years old this year. I knew him in his 90’s and he had more spunk than guys half his age. His wife Dabney gave me this pencil shortly after he died in 2004. She bought one of my paintings in 2003 because she said “I love the breasts. Don’t tell Zorthian I bought it.” I guess he would have been jealous, so I never did.

He loved to draw women.
