W. P. Kinsella

The sketch of W P Kinsella is true to my back pocket sketch book. I have read three or four of his novels and collection of short stories and was fascinated by what I had seen in video documentaries or read in essays about him.

I felt I had to acknowledge the man so out of my back pocket came my 3 x 5 sketch book and I did a two minute sketch. It always saddens me when we lose the writers, poets and artists who live out on the edge at times coming across like they are titling at windmills. The good ones are in short supply these days. …dh
