Here's a recent painting (image quality is not amazing... sorry!).  Kind of a departure for me, but I like the results. I'm about to start another one.

Peach with jug

This is part of my collection of (relatively) recent paintings that have not made an appearance in cyberspace yet.

I don't have my own computer at the moment - and my web design software is now obsolete - but I'm working on a solution so I can update my website.  My goal is to address it by the end of the summer.

Work in progress

Happy (somewhat belated) New Year!  My resolution is to paint more pumpkins.  I'm already off to a good start.  This one is nearing completion.

Happy belated Thanksgiving

Manayunk survived Hurricane Sandy without too much trouble, and I have been enjoying my new studio space very much.
I don't have any paintings to show for it yet... but here's a drawing instead:

Preparing for Frankenstorm

I am busy getting things out of the basement and doing some house cleaning in preparation for Hurricane Sandy.  (Can't run a vacuum if the power goes out!)  Assuming Manayunk is still here after the storm, I will be moving into my new studio space next weekend.  Fortunately, I found another painter who wanted to share space with someone.  The studio is only one block from our apartment, so there will be no excuse not to visit frequently and get lots of work done.  I am really excited to start producing some new paintings.  In the meantime, here is a recent figure drawing.

Show Extended / Drawing is Fun

Good news - my work will stay up at Elcy's Cafe for a few more weeks.  If you haven't been able to get to Glenside yet, you still have time!

I had a little fun drawing at last night's figure session... I feel very little pressure when drawing in pencil.  Maybe it's because I spent so much time sketching in pencil when I was a kid, or because it's so easy to erase mistakes!

Then I switched to charcoal and did some more.

Putting it together

I went to a life drawing session yesterday, and was trying to practice some of the things I learned in my summer workshop.  This was a long pose (close to three hours altogether).
