Yep! It WAS Ken's- ! Wish one could get a print of it. I always imagined his paintings (all I have seen are actually done in acrylics) were huge canvases-but was surprised to see many of the works are relatively small- He had an exhibit at a gallery in Southport, CT of his paintings for Ballard's first book. Most were in the 24"x20" range. The detail and brush strokes are masterful- he must paint some of it with one hair in the brush! Acrylics dry fast-so I am doubly impressed. The clarity and color is remarkable-the running rust looks more realistic than the REAL thing. Add to all of this the complexity of underwater shading and it is enough to send me back to painting (badly) bowls of fruit!
