Music, especially the Broadway musical, was a strong influence during my early years. An art competing for my attention, where public interest and popularity seemed to abound. I fell for Leonard Bernstein, somewhere along the way-the Great White Way!

His passing brought about this 18 X 24″ pastel portrait: in the original photo he is shown teaching composition and conducting.
