Half way through the residency and I haven't done enough painting. My main excuse is that as I haven't been able to hire a model yet I am mainly working from photographs - and I can do that back home. So far, only the life drawings, the bird painting and the start of a landscape have been done from life. And, of course, the painting I did in the workshop that took up the first week - which is still languishing at the ASL 57th street building. Oh well.
However I have made some progress, from doing the workshop, from talking to people such as Daniel Maidman and the other residents and wandering round the art museums and galleries. All I need is to put all that thinking and learning into practice!
