Mid Winter Drawing and Painting Slam 2020

As a function of the New York Figure Study Guild I am not sure if there will be any more of these going forward. The Guild has had a complete collapse of the Board and no one has stepped up to replace them. I don’t know how they would have any options other than to shut down but maybe something will happen. Meantime they did host this one at Steve’s on Sunday. They used to have them on Saturdays and I could very rarely go so I am super happy that they are now on Sundays.

There are usually two costumed models that sit all day (from 10am-4pm with breaks including a longer one for lunch), a whole lot of artist type humans and food and stuff.

I get to see friends, play with paint and get lost in a crowd that I feel at home in.

It’s great.

Mark posed for us. He rented the costume just for this event. The colors synced up perfectly with what Jessamyn was wearing for our Thursday group so the two paintings almost look like a set (although the placement on the canvases are a bit different). *

Here are my stage photos:


All in all I was relatively pleased with this one for a single session portrait.

I will keep practicing and moving forward in art and life. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.

*I will post the photos of Jessamyn after the second session which happens on Thursday.
