Finally finished preliminary sketch for my next stained glass window. It doesn’t look like much now but just wait! More pictures to come…
This past week has been a test of endurance! Wednesday I finished my first stained glass window, Thursday night I worked on a 3 hour long pose of Tendai and topped the evening off with my friend Natalie at the Lone Palm. Then I tended bar at the 500 club Friday night, attended a wedding in Oakland Saturday, worked happy hour at the 5 on Sunday and started Monday morning off with a triptych of 15 minute drawings. Tomorrow I officially start my second window! more pictures to come :)
Tryin’ to hammer out the final design for my next window 👋🏽🕺🏻

Happy to get back into figure drawing after being on the road. Here's a quick sketch from last week :)
Today I stayed home, drew an old napping dog named Sparky & finally found a home for some stained glass my dad made. The bottom tulip piece was from an old building on Chicago's South Side that he re-leaded and the piece above was made with antique leaded glass. I am very happy to have these here with me in San Francisco.
Happy to be home and drawing in SF! Signed up for a great figure drawing class at 23rd Street Studio. If you're looking for a nice studio with great models in San Francisco look into Michael's class! I spent the morning up in the loft drawing with a birds eye view. http://23rdstreetstudio.com/
Over the past two weeks I've found myself sketching my grandmother, Joan. Here are some of the drawings I've made of her napping, during cocktail hour and while watching the sunset on my parents boat.
