“Logan IA/Vitruvian”

This is from my series Home Towns, where I paint a person’s origins, layered with their present.

This is Logan, Iowa, the home town of my personal trainer.  It features a water tower (of course!), the town as it appears on a map (highways and river marked), and a hint of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, an homage to his profession and his dedication to continuous learning.  He is not himself blind or a reader of Braille, but he likes the motif, and so I included it.

Hello

In white ink, you can see piano string lengths as my dad was a piano technician, working with Steinway, Yamaha, the Metropolitan Opera, and a variety of colorful private clients..!

And who doesn’t love a good water tower?
