Fabulous, but they are so large. HOW are they preserved and/or displayed. The glass must weigh a ton!

This article is excellent. But I was disappointed because I wished it included more on Sam Goodsell's ideas and methods on drawing figures rather than his use of pastels. I have no interest in using pastels and bought the magazine because of my interest in drawing the figure better. Perhaps limited space made it impossible to include Sam's approach to figures. But if you have it, I would sure like to read about it. His work is extraordinary. Malachi Lawrence, Jr.

Long a Sam Goodsell fan - looking at these pastels is wonderful. The simplicity. The elegance. He truly does capture the essence of the being. Thank you. P.S. Does he ever teach or do workshops?
