Paintings by Trent Call

"We recently acquired an old, swaybacked ping-pong table at the studio. It sure is fun slicing and swinging back and forth in quick reaction. I like to say that ping-pong is good hand-eye coordination practice for drawing, although, I'm not quite sure I believe that. I get schooled on most days, anyhow. Out the window in the back courtyard lives a band of feral cats. They were there before us and we feed them sometimes. They are scrawny, almost fragile looking and fearful. They seem to watch us."
