Zack Baisden was a wonderful and prolific abstract artist. When we met, soon after I'd moved to Florida, he had recently retired from teaching art. We often gallery sat together, and chatted about all sorts of things; travel, relationships, and everything art.
Rest in Peace, dear Zack. You will be missed!
One quiet morning at the Gallery, not long after I'd begun my daily portraiture drawing, he explained to me, in quite some detail, how to approach the human eye.
I've never forgotten those words, and refer to them often. His gentle voice and influence will always remains in my heart, hand, and mind.
