A Few New Things

October 30, 2012 § 1 Comment

I have been thinking about it for months and it will soon be a reality.  I am cutting way back on my administrative job in January to be able to paint full time (and teach a little bit).   The prospect of not working for a regular pay check is a little scary but as my friend Amy said to me, “If you’re going to be an artist you have to be brave.

I drive through this intersection at least twice a day on may way to and from my day job.

And the newest life drawing group in the valley is over at Atelier LaRose – Steven put together a successful kickstarter campaign to hold free life drawing sessions open to anyone.   They are kind of a free for all – models swing from the rafters, lighting comes from several directions, and of course, these sessions are totally fun.

    Congratulations on your decision, not an easy one to make! I like how minimalistic that painting is in terms of brush strokes (or so it seems).
    Your sketches are sweet by the way. You always do those after a live model?
