R. B. Sprague (1937-2010)


this is Roger in his prime on Fire Island 39 years ago.

one of his paintings was the first illustration I postd on this blog. Roger participatd in the Century Dimes. "Butch Series" (2002) was a piece which used his work. he photographd my most popular video in his studio. & he took that polaroid that Richard Lopez recently postd on his blog. its reception promptd the ailing R. B. to quip that perhaps he had a future as a photographer.

Roger found the humor in everything & was able to make me laugh till my sides hurt. I miss him already.
