Settling In

Day three here at PAFA and I am delighted how at peace I feel in “my” studio. Four clean white walls, ready to accommodate whatever I throw at them . I am working large , something I have had to curtail back in LA as my studio space was becoming increasingly more cramped with my work, my books , my supplies; it is incredibly liberating to not have my familiar “support”, be it my resource files, art books etc. It is now about my expression not another’s . I have always struggled with the greatness of past artists , comparing myself unfavorably. I feel freer of that.

My progress thus far is drawing out The Goblin Market , sadly it isn’t photographing well, I need to improve the rather paltry lighting . But so far it looks like this:

     In between studio hours I wander about , the following are some shots I have taken around center city Philadelphia.
