My friend Earl from Denver suggests that a new reader (we get new ones every day, it seems) would have no sense of the significance, as it relates to The Year of Magical Painting, of juxtaposing George Pickett and Richard Grasso.

The short answer is that I've painted Richard Grasso--an early version of which would, of course, be what you see here--and I am going to paint George Pickett.

Now, if you scrounge around the archives you can find the finished version of this painting. This, however, is the first iteration I thought worth displaying on the blog. And really, isn't this more interesting in some ways (certainly to those exploring The Year of Magical Painting with a rigorously academic mindset) than the final version.

Context is now thus provided.
