Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

A talented actor sometimes crafts a character so convincingly that we, the audience, begin to project that persona onto the actor. In the case of David Carradine, a calm, centered, spiritual man. At least that was my perception of him, which is a credit to his great gift as an actor, because the reality was not always so. The star of the seventies TV series "Kung Fu" and movies "Kill Bill" 1 and 2, is believed to have taken his own life in a hotel room in Bangkok, Thailand. He was 72.

    Whether it was suicide or murder, a sad end to a life lived for 72 years. I like your portrayals of him, Larry. I always found his face very compelling.

    I knew you would do his portrait today, Larry. I was so shocked coming home in the car to hear this news. I'd just watched "Sunday Morning" recently where they did a segment on him, and how he was one of the "golden boys." So sad, and terribly tragic. You captured him beautifully--lovely tribute.
