Testing the Waters

Not too terribly long ago, I mentioned to some of the members of YEStalk, that I was going to embark on an endeavor to do some portraits of the existing band members. Well, due to circumstances beyond my control, it took an incredibly long time, but I did just recently complete them. The thing is, they turned out so damn well that I decided to keep them. However, I have elected to undertake a similar endeavor and currently have plenty of time to devote to said effort. I would like to offer the finished products to all who may be interested. Trust me, each portrait will be a near 100% accurate rendering of each of the band members and can be done in pencil, pen and ink or charcoal. This offer will cover all band members from day one of YES' creation to the present day. There will also be group portraits made available.

I realize that virtually anyone can make such a claim and that pictures should be made available in order to back up my offer and of course, they will be just as soon as I can purchase another scanner ( won't be too long ). You won't be disappointed for perfectionist tendencies, though often troublesome in imperfect surroundings, are well suited when doing portraits. It is my hope that you will be stunned at the quality of these drawings. They won't be cheap, but they won't be pricey either.

Something to consider. Let me know if you might be interested. Pics to come soon enough!

Such a mystery ! They already sound great. Maybe Renato and I should put a soundtrack together and turn it into a Floating Islands DVD thing for you...

I collect original art - no prints. Will this be prints or original? If it's original, I'm very interested. I would love to see your work. :)

Ah, there's nothing quite like fanning the flames of intrigue! Mike, that's a splendid idea! Only one thing, though, we'll need more time and lots of donations from wealthy contributors! Ha!!

Well now, Westie my lady, for you, I will provide the originals! There may be conditions... ; )

I've been in no-limit Texas Hold 'Em poker games that did not have this action. This Texas Boy thinks N2 bluffed, The Ancient called, and wild_westie raised him.

Hmmm, could be interesting though I've just recently bought some goodies to decorate the study so I may have to save some pennies first . . .

Thanks ever so much for the patience everyone has shown. I seem to attract time-consuming difficulties of varying degrees. Anyhoo, they are presently at a low ebb which means..............................pencil is in hand momentarily!
