NEWSLETTER"When I go to an art gallery and stand in front of a painting, I don't want someone telling me what I should be seeing or thinking; I want to feel whatever I feel, see whatever I see, and figure out what I figure out."- James Frey
I am forever pulled to the simplicity and complexity of the human figure. I attempt to capture a pose quickly and fluently. The figure is so personal, so close and I am so very aware of its image. I, therefore, feel that I must work within the confines of the figure again and again. I strive to draw the ideal figure and the perfect mood of the pose while conscientiously trying to create a well-designed work of art. Lately I've been consumed with just the drawing: lecturing on figure drawing, drawing in 2-4 workshops a week, choosing the colors, catching the gesture or movement, and exploiting the mood.
