    Thanks, Diana. Eddy is a wonderful subject. Everything fell into line for this shot, the lighting, the expression, the feeling — a sort of perfect storm

    Hi John,
    I discovered this portrait of Eddy in the F&M Arts Review. “Exquisite” and “Everything fell into line” describe it perfectly. I especially like the way the horizontal lines compliment the bass strings, the faded pencil mustache lingers as a vestige of or tribute to youth, and the bolo tie might say “show time.” The folds of the denim bring to mind Roman sculpture. The captured hands and eye are mesmerizing: physiology as memoir. And the fact that Eddy’s ear is in the center of it all makes perfect sense.

    Brian, thank you so much. I truly appreciate your thoughts and the in-depth attention you have given to “Eddy.” I am delighted that the portrait communicated so much about my friend, and your observations from an artistic/technical point of view are most flattering, indeed! They are also a testimonial to the quality of reproduction and dedication to detail that the Arts Review has consistently maintained since its inception…
