Painting #16: Shadowville Speedway
I would almost for sure say use this one in the book since it was paited for a Doc collection from the start......
I would for sure say no, we can't. There's no color, just black & white, inside the book; I have no idea what putting in a 4-color glossy page would cost, but it would drive the price up too high.
I don't have a picture for part II of the book. That's something I'd like to have from you, to balance off your picture of Will that opens part I. If you're interested in creating that, I'll give you the details of what's needed.
I do understand how color costs more.......
And I know that when jacking up the price of a book the market can only bear so much.....
Well, what I need and can use, if you have it, is an illustration for part 2. Just a black and white sketch, either square or portrait proportions (landscape would look lost on the page).
The title of part 2 is "My Wayward Muse". The "Muse" is all the women in his life, with Kathy at #2, because #1 is Will's art, his music and poetry. My idea on that would be a woman, (not necessarily Kathy as it's a composite "Muse) - best would be a bust to match off Will's in part 1 - with something in the picture to suggest his music and poetry.
Please mull it over, and do not try to rush out something right away. There's time to cogitate, meditate, kick around different ideas in one's mind and on paper, that sort of thing.
In the interim, I will use the "Shadowville Speedway" picture with your poem on PPB, with your permission. No need to send me anything - I'll download the link.
I'd better get that firmed up now, as (per our original schedule) "EI" will appear this Sunday. I mention that in case you want to change that - I'm fine with it myself.
