The first time I meet Mr. Freeman I wound up buying a piece from him called Sir Charles. Since that time I have seen maybe six or seven other Sir Charles pieces. Each one is distinctive from the others and the Charles in each are different individuals. He does the same with his Glorias and Sandras. The only thing the people in the pictures share are their names.
I have a friend in Bangkok, Thailand who is an enthusiastic supporter of Mr. Freeman and his art. He has his own art blog called Art Found Out. He sent me a link that features four posts concerning Hisayoshi Watanabe. Mr. Watanabe was a homeless man who lived under a bridge in Tokyo. He was also a visionary artist who created doll-like sculptures out of scrap cloth.
There are extraordinary people all around us. Some that are the most humble in means are the most remarkable in perception.
