  1. Rich,

    Wow! This is a most impressive sketch. It was on the terminator just a couple of days ago. Your lunar sketches are jaw-dropping.

    Frank 🙂

  2. Rich,

    I knew it as soon as I saw it. This is one of yours.

    It’s a magnificent work of art, my friend.

    We see too few of those sketches of yours.
