When Ezra Roy was a toddler, he would hold onto his artist father’s leg and look up as he worked at his easel. Years later, as Alvin Roy juggled caring for Ezra and his own career, there came a day he needed to keep Ezra busy while he worked on sketches. He handed Ezra a crayon and some paper. His son didn’t grip the instrument between his first two fingers and thumb the way one holds a pencil. He lay it in his upturned palm across all his fingers, flipped his hand over and began to shade. The separation between the medium and the man was minimal. “He’s been watching me,” Alvin thought. It’s no surprise, really. Artists interpret, sure.
