It is beautiful Kate. And don't you hate it when they smash themselves against the windows!
Hello!I'm too late. My loss.Not sure how I made it to 43 without buying any original paintings. I'll have to stay tuned for more opportunities. I'm so grateful I found your blog, you crack me up and I really admire your work.When I went to Parson's in the 80's I was told that realism was dead - I'm just waking up to all the amazing contemporary realism happening now! Just a few days before i found your work, I had decided to look into painting with live models again and found Sadie Valeri's drop in sessions - and tried and failed to go to them since she was on vacation for August ( and apparently entertaining you and David in fedoras). But Not only am I finding out about so many fantastic painters but also what seems to be a vital community as well. Sept 6th at Sadie's atelier will be my first time painting a live model in almost 10 years.I hope I can pull something off -- whatever it is -- it'll be a start anyway.Cristie
