Formation, 30 x 60 in, Acrylic on Canvas

I finished my painting called Formation yesterday after braving the snow storm to get to my hot, cosy little studio. It's so full of good energy! I turned up the music and painted 'til I dropped. I had heard the trains were not going to run but I figured I could always walk home across the 59th St bridge. When you are on a roll, you just have to go with it. Thankfully, the trains were still running by the time I left.

The Grand Central Academy of Art

I'm enjoying the new year and all the hope and optimism it brings. I'm also enjoying a new art school. I want to divide my education between the Art Students League and The Grand Central Academy of Art. Doesn't it sound grand? It is situated in a loft in a classical 1880's building in midtown Manhattan. The Academy, created by professional artists, provides classical training in drawing and painting. My instructor is John DeMartin who I met at the League.
