This original pencil drawing is Faint Angel Voices. It is based an identification photo (discovered by Bruce Jackson) from the Arkansas State Prison taken sometime between 1915 to 1937.

The title is from a line in my favorite book, "All the King's Men" by Robert Penn Warren...."diaphanous spirit wings and faint angel voices...". I think the eloquent phrase fits this unidentified young girl perfectly.

This piece is from my "Just a Number" series. These are derived from vintage mug shots or prison ID photos. I find the people in these photos, often identified only by a number, intriguing because they serve to remind us of our humanity, frailty, and need for redemption. We are all more than just a number.

The actual image size is approx. 3 1/2 x 5 inches on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of acid-free Bristol Board It is signed and ships to you in an acid-free plastic sleeve sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard. It is unmatted and unframed. Watermark does not appear on drawing.
