Dick Spooner's napkin art!

Dick Spooner, local artist of fame, friend and great guy did a preliminary sketch today Sunday June 14, taking him only a few seconds, and from memory(a photo he had seen on my blog site here).
Dick is an incredible artist, educated here in Thunder Bay and Toronto. He is an honours graduate of the Communication Design course of the Ontario College of Art majoring in photography and illustration.
Dick's illustrations, specifically cityscapes and landscapes in and around Thunder Bay have been reproduced from original works into limited edition prints and art cards. Visitors to Thunder Bay, regional dignitaries and former residents have carried these items to all corners of Canada and the world.
Looking at the enlargement of the sketch, you can see that it was done on....oh yes!, a McDonald's restaurant napkin.
We are trying to get Dick to do a rendering of our old local stock car track that used to exist at the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition grounds in the intercity area of Thunder Bay.
Great start Dick....give it a go....
The coloured picture on the right is the one he had remembered from my site. Click on either of these photos to enlarge. You can also see Dick's own website by clicking here Thanks a ton RL. Dick's ice racing talents will also be shown on this blogsite some time soon.
