I went to Lockport tonight to pay my respects to Joe Whalen. It was a long line and I was by myself. Plenty of time to think about him and how much he encouraged me and what a great role model he was for me. When I left there I was determined to do some art to honor my friend. I never made it out of the parking lot of the funeral home. I sat in my truck and made this sketch in ink. I only had a small pocket watercolor pad with me. Use what you got. That’s what Joe would do. A lot of this was done in a kind of short hand to help me go over it in watercolor later. That’s how I usually do it. I think Joe would have liked it.
