And the Fire Burns On…

  I had an EXCELLENT critique today , it couldn’t have been more in contrast to Wednesday’s. My critic, the artist Patricia Traub, upon entering my studio let out a delighted giggle . That really is all I could ask for .
In addition to our shared passions for animal rights ( you have to check out her work , it is mind blowing ) and LeBrun , she seemed to understand where I was going . As can be imagined this was deeply gratifying .

She felt my drawing to be very strong and assertive and for me to put aside the paintings I have been fretting over and to just draw.

She also feels my paintings need to be massive , along the scale of Benjamin West’s panoramic canvases – now to find that ever expanding studio space.

But for today I just drew , the above a work in progress .

Off to Shabbos dinner with a friend from LA, then tomorrow , more drawing . A good day indeed.

  1. So good to hear this; what a week! Good to see this drawing too, you do manage to make images that, for me, mix a medieval and contemporary feel, making them timeless, wonderful.

    1. I’m embracing this direction and not sure why I curtailed it in the past. Good art or not , the making of it delights me, so I’m going forward with it.
      Have a great weekend
