Commentary:

Magnified view of an old style utility knife with perspiration holes in the cast iron handle.  This heavy, red object lived in my father’s studio, which he used for cutting mat board, paper, etc. A common object as a powerful trigger for activating certain neural pathways in my memory.

  1. Hi Rob, glad you approve of my efforts and encourage you to ‘steal’ away!! Wasn’t it Picasso who said that mediocre artists “borrow”, great artists steal.
