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.
