Nice original drawing with colored pencils by the listed Ohio artist Dean Purdy Close. Drawing measures 4 x 5 inches (actual drawing size), done on illustrator card stock. The drawing is attached to a backing measuring 5 1/4 b6 6 1/2 inches approximately. This drawing comes with the original backing with title and signature. Note that the drawing itself is not signed, the signature and title are written in pencil on the backing. Offered unframed as found. A nice little drawing to add to your Midwest artists collection.
