Dr. Louis Castor oil on canvas 20 x 22 inches 1993

A Man on Chemotherapy pencil with traces of pastel 23 x 29 inches 1993

Dr. Louis Castor was a friend. I did a portrait of him, which his family owns.

I remember him as having a warm, gentle, and passionate nature.

He never saw the drawing, which was done about the same time as the painting. It was done while he was undergoing chemotherapy.

I feel the drawing expresses the pain and anxiety of his experience.
