Capture the Moment

1968 “Portrait of Brian” by Damon Lehrer  I was at my figure drawing session the other night, and we all took turns at modeling for each other.  My figure studies mentor, Damon Lehrer, did the above quick sketch of me, and for some reason, it brought my mind back to the hand colored photo of myself that […]

New Doors Will Open Wide

Yesterday was spent moving my things down the hall into my new studio.  The overall space is a little smaller, but I have four walls to work with now, not one. I love starting out with a blank slate, and the options for different set ups.  My main goal was to get things into the […]

Moving Ahead and Rebirth

I post the above photo especially for my good friends Manon Doyle and Douglas Hoover. There is nothing better than a fresh shipment of supplies.  I like the purity of new canvases, and having them on the walls helps me visualize and formulate goals. The week was spent finishing up the second canvas of the […]

Week 1, 2011 – Off To A Great Start!

If I could request something from the universe, I would ask it to make the rest of the  year exactly like the very first week of the year.  So many good things have happened in a very short period of time, and we are barely out of the gate. Most of the week was spent […]

On a Strong Note and Into the New Year!

No, not my finest video moment, but it’s from the heart! As I sit down to write this, my head is swimming with the year that has just passed by.  I took an hour the other night to go back through all of my blog posts from this year, and it amazes me all that […]
