“Homesteader” is one of my earlier graphite portraits. As a matter of fact there are two versions of “Homesteader” floating around. I also did an ink rendering of him many moons ago. The subject was actually a farmer from around the Daytona Beach area of Florida, but I thought he looked so much like he could fit right into my Faces West Gallery. The original photo was taken by a friend of mine, Jon Carissimi.
