Celebrated for his free-flowing, improvisatory plays, short stories and novels -- among them "The Time of Your Life", "The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze" and The Human Comedy-- the Armenian-American writer (1908-1981) was also an original amd accomplished visual artist.  During the writer's lifetime, however, he neither sold nor exhibited his watercolors and drawings.  Saroyan was influenced by Chinese brush painting, the calligraphic works of Mark Tobey, and the expressionist go-for-broke daring of Jackson Pollock.  Saroyan's abstractions combine his powerful sense of form with a willingness to let the moment unfold its own meaning, much as is his best writing
