So as I explained in the previous post, I am currently working on a series of portraits that began as one idea but have morphed into another. In the start, the plan was to paint one portrait a month and each painting would be titled as the month it was worked on. The first one, seen here, is my friend Emily Long, a NYC collage artist who posed for me in my Harlem apt (this was actually the second time...

Currently I'm working on a series of portraits, which collectively I'm calling "A Year in the LIfe" since the idea is based on a different portrait for every month of one year, starting in September 2016 through August 2017.

Till next time!

As friends and family prepare for "getting out of town" for memorial day weekend, I am looking forward to settling "into town" after a week in NYC, and can't wait to spend the next three days in the studio. Especially since my studio is in the basement of my house, where it's nice and cool, and the forecast is hot and humid!

The image above, "August", I finished surprisingly quick, and right before lea...
