length or width, framed or unframed. The undraped figures that Draper paints are

expression, feeling, motion, color, and relationship come into play as the
primary visual and emotional factors. His Sausalito studio is on the San

one of the few talented artists who have crafted the skill of this "Unique Form"
in a modern and western fashion. These works can add to the decor of any room,
and fill that typical narrow, and long wall void over a window, arch or doorway.
Much sought-after and hard to find, this form is painted in a traditional
style with excellent detail. It is then framed, like any normal painting.
Because each is an original creation, no two are exactly alike. This painting is
a true treasure and a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition.

Copper is painted with formulated acids to
