    Cumulus Clouds Shade

    I didn't know exactly where Franklin Square was. But once I got down there, I found it very fresh, with the fountain, the flowers, and the benches with the ivy growing around them. I didn't feel that I was in Syracuse. It was just very different from the surrounding area. It seemed almost European.

    I picked the poem because I had never ventured down there, and I thought this would give me a chance to find out about the area. Also, I was interested in working with a statue as the subject. I felt it would work well with my graphic style. I've been working in pen and ink line-work. It kind of takes on a movement of its own, which I like. I don't like to have a plan. I just like to put the pen to the paper and see where it takes me.
