Tribeca Ball was last week, MFA Open Studios this week so the activities never end here at the NYAA. This blog is a little assemblage of photos taken in and around the school over the last two weeks.
Only about a month left of class before the summer break and I'm scrambling to get everything done...seems like an impossibility at this point, five paintings and two presentations to do on top of everything else. The push is on.
I'm JUST getting into the sketches and studies which I plan to develop this summer and into next year as my Thesis work. In addition to all the class work I need to get done, I'll be trying to get a grasp on this new direction as well. So in my next blog I'll have more to report on that. I have one charcoal sketch below that represents the beginning of the beginning in this direction.
In the meantime, I hope to see everyone at the Open Studios this Friday the 19th from 6-9pm!!!
