Graphite Pencil Artist

Who is the “graphite pencil artist” John D. Herz?

For the first 58 years of my life I had no clue I had any real artistic talent, though I always liked to draw. I doodled mostly and from time to time tried my hand at some serious drawing, but I never believed I had the skills to be an “artist.” On my 58th birthday my better half, Nancy, took me to an art store and as a gift bought me what I needed to get started drawing again, since I hadn’t drawn in years. And this is where the fun began.

Sharing Art Stories with Leroy NeimanI had a once in a lifetime experience, meeting Leroy Neiman several months before he passed. I admired him most of my life and soaked up the opportunity to get personal advice as he thumbed through my pencil drawings. He said, “John, you are very talented, don’t change a thing, just keep drawing”.P1040576P1040581
