March 2008

Gregory Barnes was formerly incarcerated at San Quentin Prison in California and released in December, 2007. He now divides his time between Napa Valley and the Bay Area.

In a recent letter to editor Jeffrey Hillard, Barnes wrote, “In my cell I knew I could not keep from doing nothing. I asked God, ‘What am I really supposed to be doing?’ Not much later I heard, ‘Draw. Just draw.’ I got that urge. But I wasn’t sure. I had never drawn anything before. I am self-taught. I thank God for what I can do.”
