Greetings darlings!! How is everybody? I’m doing well. Very happy that this summer is turning out much better than last summer in terms of art modeling work. Last summer was pretty bad. But this year I’m working steadily and it’s great!
I’ve been booked for the Sculpture Marathon at the New York Academy of Art for the last week of July. The instructors will be Harvey Citron and Cynthia Eardley. Also, Daniel Maidman and I have just begun our private work together. I’m really excited about it! We had our first session today at his studio in Brooklyn and it went splendidly. Daniel and I are friends, we work well together, and enjoy each other’s company which is always a plus for private sessions. Best of all, Daniel is a fabulous figurative artist whose work I really admire. He’s planning a magnificent painting of me; big and nude. What else could you ask for? 😆 I’m thrilled to be posing for him and I will chronicle our progress on the blog.
The Artist’s Model by Benes Knupfer:
On a different topic, I only recently began my summer reading due to my busy work schedule. Since I’ve gotten such a late start I don’t think I’ll make it through my whole list! I rarely do anyway. But I want to recommend a book to those who like nonfiction and/or history. It’s Letters to Jackie: Condolences From a Grieving Nation, complied by Ellen Fitzpatrick. I’m almost finished with it. Very, very touching. Moved me to tears every other page.
