Figure Drawing November 18th, 2019

Went to Figure Drawing last night like I do most Mondays. I really enjoy it. I mean, not the actual drawing part (as much as you might think… the drawing part can be frustrating and it can be easy to get up in my own head and get judgy about myself and my work) but the community at Steve’s place. There is a group of artists that show up (some regularly and some frequently) and they all appear to be amazing human beings.

There are so few places where you can count on the people there to be warm and inviting and just, well, nice. There isn’t enough of that in the world. Maybe it is more common in art communities. Maybe being outcasts art people tend to be protective of one another.

Maybe it is that any group if it is small enough and well tended will take care of each other.

I don’t know. I do know that I appreciate it immensely. It’s not just about the space. It’s not just about the practice. It’s not just about Steve (no matter how amazing he may be). It is more about the group that Steve has surrounded himself with.

I am glad that I get to be a part of that group at least once a week. I am glad that we have the opportunity for drop in Figure Drawing in Rochester. I am glad that Steve decided to call Rochester home and set up his studio here.

Also a shout out to Michelle who was getting over a week of being sick and still came and sat for us. Our models are amazing.


Time Lapse:

Remember to appreciate the things in your life that you love. Don’t take for granted the times that are special or the people that matter to you.
