The late great John Updike

After seeing Dale's fine painting of John Updike, I thought I'd post one I did. It was done for the NYT Book Review a year or so ago. I was flattered to receive a very nice note from Updike himself wanting to purchase the drawing. He thought I "captured him well in old age".

I framed the letter.
