Starlight Ballroom

Last night, I showed at the annual Reflections fashion event at the Starlight Ballroom in Philadelphia. Watching masses of people look at my work is a nerve wrackingly voyeuristic experience. Especially when the music is too loud to eavesdrop.  To ease my mind, I painted.

Of In. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Many skilled, visual artists were showing with me. Please take moment to check out the work of Cherry Buttons, Mizz Mechanique, and Linda Guenste.

The main focus of the evening was fashion. The air was thick with beauty, music, sex, and clove cigarettes.

Not So Human Beings. Ink on paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

May Your Days be Merry and Bright

Twice a month at the Hammonton Arts Center, the Painter’s Atelier meets. The Painter’s Atelier is a group of painters interested in learning from one another. Each meeting has a theme. Today’s theme was “snow.”  Below is my wintry, watercolor still life including a snow globe. It is fascinating to see the variety of work 5 different artists can create using a single word.

Back to the Drawing Room

The Noyes Museum’s art creation club, The Drawing Room, now meets on Tuesday nights instead of Wednesdays. I am still focusing on combining pen and watercolor in an elegantly balanced fashion. Each week I get closer to my goal.

Rooms of The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room (the drawing club I’m a part of) spent a few weeks focusing on perspective drawing.   The following two drawings weren’t so fun for me to make, but perspective is important to brush up on every once and a while. I’m told musicians, no matter how skilled, should practice basic scales when possible. Consider these spacial drawings my scales.

It seems like only yesterday that I told you about the Noyes Museum‘s weekly drawing club. Well, the Drawing Room is now over a month old. Starting in June we will be experimenting with persepctive and interior space. Feel free to join us on Wednesday nights. Below are select drawings from my most recent three sessions.

On a side note, a lot of people have been asking about my Facebook project. I have not given up! Spring and summer are my busy seasons. I promise to pick back up right where I left off come fall.

The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room is a drawing club that meets at the Noyes Museum on Wednesday nights. There have only been two sessions to date, both focusing on still life and basic drawing refresher exercises. I love where our little group of artists is going and am looking forward to posting more drawings from our meetings.
