The lady of the lake.. or girl of the.. ok: I made this..

Above done in Painter and Art Rage.. Very unfinished with "canvas" showing through but I'm at a place where I like it.. So = stop.

The final for a demo on getting likeness from careful basic shape development:

And the only drawing that gets to "survive" from my first time figure drawing quickly in over two months!  Sorry to the great model Jenny that this is quite the short haul..

The below is a study I did while in Maui..  "the Kiss"

In Graphite via sketchbook..

Walkabout Brooklyn..

Hopefully soon I will have some work to show but here are a few images from my walks to school and back..

Above - Gowanus Canal at about 5:45pm - little man on scooter..

Beautiful sky from Union and Bond streets on the edge of Caroll Gardens looking up toward Park Slope
Park Slope building on 7th and Berkeley (?).. the wind was flapping that edge up and down.. I waited but it wouldn't go up again..

Frozen Yogurt store I think..  on 7th in P.S.

Last few moments of sun at the Guild Atelier today..

My Camie Davis workshop painting

As ever at workshops, there is much not completed in this painting but the workshop was excellent and Camie, if I can sing her praises, is a passionate, kind ( yet stern at the right moments!) teacher.  If you combine that with her astonishing skills as an artist - well, you got a great experience!  Thank you for all of your teaching Camie, I learned so much and this painting would be landfill w/o your help!

"Victoria" Oil 14" x 14"on Raphael 3x oil primed Belgian linen

Poster study on "Yes" canvas about 4" x 6"
Ink in with a bit of background

Rather, um, hulking painter over tiny painting and even tiny-er model ?

Some recent gestures and figure studies from life - Lauren, Signe and E

Most of these are 1-5 minutes with one on here ( the two with a bit more detail and value are 20's)..  Charcoal pencil and Wolff's carbon on smooth newsprint.  Keep it real yo'.

At Play in the fields of Masters.. A Few Days with Rob LIberace in Vermont.

If you ever get the chance to attend a Robert Liberace class/workshop/pancake's house conversation - I recommend you RUN (do not walk) to get thee to it!  Great learning and much fun!..Above, "Bob" on "Yes" canvas ( at Jerry's) about 8 x 10 or so and about 2.5 hours or less everything in this post from live models.

"Spoon" similar proportions and dimensions as Bob,  oh - and all oil paints here..

"Spoon" block-in in umber and a bit of ultramarine..

"Monica's BF" as I forgot this nice fellow's name..

Monica in grisaille..

Umber 20-30 min sketch or so..

Another speedy umber sketch ( for warming up).. both of these were wiped to make way for Monica..

Here ( below) is Rob L at work on a demo.. great to watch him work - confident, engaged and encyclopedic (reminds me of things I think about Tony R as well!)

Above, about an hour at Glen-O's glass at CAI...

I sat in a bit in Charles Hu's gesture class and did nothing to write home about.. above - well I'll write here.. about 8 minutes each

Behind the scenes and farewell to the Anthony Ryder School..

It has been such a challenging and rewarding year at the Tony Ryder School in Santa Fe - from meeting and working with so many wonderful people to all of us getting completely sick of each other ( at least until we could throw the Frisbee!)..  I learned so much from Tony, Anna, Krista, Toby, John, Dave and Celeste - and cannot thank them enough for letting me be part of their world for almost a year.  I miss them and also other wonderful fellow students - Tina, Sarah, Dorothy, Jacob, Rose, Shelly, Alex, Anwar the Gangsta, Emile, Daralyn,  and enjoyed the friendships I have made and will treasure.   I hope I will get the chance to study with them in the future - they are all great humans and wonderful artists!

Jacob, Tony, Anwar ( the Indo-Gangsta,) David-B and Toby.. these are usually very unhappy dudes, I paid them each 10.00 to laugh/smile.  Except Anwar - who got a Shrek Happy Meal toy !

Santa FE local gang-signage thrown..  Also Big John R graced us with his manly and handsome personage!  I think this is after a beer or two ?

Thank you Rose W ( on the right) and Mark ( hub) for putting on the bar-b-que!  That's Celeste Ryder in the background, avoiding hand grenades no doubt!

Tony and a painting he did in 2008.  You can tell he LOVES having his picture taken!  I own the poster to this painting ( could not afford the painting!!)

There is hopefully never any question of Tony's mad genius!  ( this is a long still life work of his I think mostly completed in 2009.  Amazing, Stunning.
