"Here is the latest on the Red Water Bucket. I know, it isn't Red. Maybe it won't be in the end but I swear the original is red. I got this far and like what the graphite pencil is doing without any color. Color pencil drawings are almost all the time drawn in first with regular pencil and color is added later. But this 'feels' like a Andrew Wyeth drawing and I like it that way. I don't know what the final version will sell for but I am the poor man's Andrew Wyeth. He was getting millions for originals before he died and I think that was just. He deserved it too. If a foot ball player can get that sort of payment, a great artist can get that too. There are thousands of foot ball players and only one Andrew Wyeth. "
