This morning I'm off to Sugar Loaf to draw from the model for 2 hours with a group of local artists. We all help pay for the model ; there is no instruction just the wonderful opportunity to experiment with your art to capture the figure in various medias. I have been working in pastel for the longer poises. In November, we plan on having another show, so keep posted for further details.

Gretna was another great painter and teacher of mine at the New York Studio School ,she once," I intend to find out something of the nature of the world through seeing or maybe I only intend to prolong my delight in seeing."

Back in the 70's I went to the New York Studio School on W.8th ST. in NYC and I studied with Philip Guston. He once said," When you're in the studio painting, there are a lot of people in there with you... your teachers,friends,painters from history, critics...and one by one if you're really painting, they walk out. And if you're really painting YOU walk out."
I painted on Wisner Road for over 20years. I fell in love with the flat landscape. It reminded me of California where I lived for the time I was 7-22yrs. Before coming out to NY to study art at the New York Studio School.

As I worked at putting this together it literally helped me to see outside the BOX. I had to turn it look at the view from different perspectives not just straight on.
