As you may know, we 18 first year MFA illustrators take all of our classes together. All save one. Half of us take painting this year, half take drawing. Then it flips next year. Painting studio is 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesday evenings.Last night those of my classmates who take the drawing clinic on Fridays instead of painting studio on Wednesdays, got free tickers to go see James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave on broadway in "Driving Miss Daisy."
As my privileged classmates enjoyed the show, I spent four hours doing this still life for painting studio:
Let me be frank. Still lifes are not my favorite thing in the world. I must try to remember that this class will make me a better painter.
Because when else am I going to take the initiative to paint a bell pepper on my own?
I thought I might try to sell this on eBay for 5 bucks, but I did my market research and that isn't going to fly.
So who wants it?
