My Brother, The Mathematics Professor. 2012. Pen and ink on 9"x12" Bristol Board
This is an old drawing. I wanted to repost this because I read this article today. It is about my brother. You know how I often swoon over my brothers and sisters. I have nothing but the highest regard and admiration for them. One would think it is only natural for me to do that because I am their sister. So, it is wonderful when a very respected judge verifies it. :)
The writer is a childhood friend and an elementary and high school classmate of my brother. He is now a judge in the city where I grew up. He and my sister Leah attended the same law school. My brother is a very kind and humble man. His mathematical equations have been used by NASA and in several scientific researches.
I used this image because I did this drawing after I perused the photographs my brother took of the exotic plants and flowers last year. I have never seen most of them, how could that be? Maybe I did not look hard. Maybe because I do not like wild places. Several weeks after I completed this drawing, my brother had poison ivy. Oh my. I told him it must have been from going deep into the wild rain forests. I remembered being distressed about it when I talked to him on the phone. He just kept saying "yes, yes" to whatever I said just to make me stop. Hah!
