The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my artwork, “Still Life Drawing, Using Black Charcoal Sticks,” after I shared it through the memories feature…
(first discussion took place here)
Rayn: Created in Spring 2000 for art class at Stony Brook University.
The assignment was to create a still-life illustration, based on an arrangement of objects placed in the center of the room, using black charcoal sticks on grey 18×24 paper.
Sara: Amazing how you captured the shading so well, the Kleipe’s always had a knack for drawing exactly what we see in front of us!
Anke M.: That is stunning! Have you ever had a show Rayn? Obviously you are a serious multifaceted artist: music, painting, etc. I am in awe.
Rayn: Thank you, kindly, Anke. 🙂 The only shows I’ve participated in are the occasional live Hip-Hop and poetry ones, almost exclusively upon request.
Sara: I always loved this piece! Great job!
Arielle K.: You guys are really amazingly talented
