I met Francesca on the line at CHiPS. She graciously allowed me to take her picture and make this drawing. I didn't really learn that much about her since she didn't speak English, but I'm really happy with the way the drawing came out. 

This piece is part of my exhibition – The Faces of CHiPS - What if God lived in Gowanus? – a series of studies and portraits of the people of CHiPS, a soup kitchen/residence that has served my neighborhood for 50 years. All proceeds from sales of paintings and prints will be donated to CHiPS to further their mission.

The Prints are Gorgeous.

The original is 11" x 14". The prints are beautiful accurate representations of the original, but with a 1" border on all sides. I use Hahnemuhle German Etching paper and print right to the edges. They look like etchings. The blacks are black, and the prints are virtually indistinguishable from the originals.
