The Melancholic Meriwether Lewis

The Melancholic Meriwether Lewis, 15" x 22", Pen and Marker on Paper
This is a piece about the iconic and tragic naturalist and explorer Meriwether Lewis.  I did it for the Icons of the West show at the Dana Gallery in June. I enjoyed doing it so much that I think I will do a drawing based on Lewis' traveling companion William Clark!
