Whitney Afternoon

January 29, 2018 - 7:57pm
Great day today  I rejoined the Whitney and saw some great shows.Im not a huge Laura Owen's fan but I like the way she works and thinks about life and artthere's a couple friends the show made me think of, there's alot there about painting and image makingvery like David Hockney.  Though her actual use of paint doesn't appeal to me. The collection at the Whitney is so greatit was good to see the old favorites         I keep getting knocked out by early Alex Katz paintings.  The thing that gets me is the absolute looseness and dead on accuracy. I want that.

Yesterday was good!I saw a posting on facebook that leadDave and I to volunteeringto help distribute hot lunches and holiday gifts for the North Brooklyn Angels .It felt great to lend a hand in our own neighborhood.We're excited to help out some more.  Then back to paintingIt's been fun working with Bernard's bike,I had asked to paint it when he brought it to Dave to have work done.we hadn't set a date for him to pick it upI had assumed that it would be in the studio through New Years.So it was a big surprise when he called to say he was on his way.

I raced, painting as fast as I could, trying to finish before he picked it up. It was so fun and helped me keep my aim to not spend to long on each painting.

My Unbelievable Run

December 24, 2017 - 9:10am
I've been running for fitness.  The regular run is across the bridge and back.I do it a few times a week, it's 3 miles and takes about half an hour.I love using Strava so I can see how much I've improved since I started and it motivates me to run consistantly and work on my pace. I like collecting my data.This last week the GPS has gone berserk.  On the 19th and 20th it started recording halfway throughon the 22nd, it didn't record any movement at allthen this morning it had me doing this amazing totally unbeliveable run.Hope next week I'm back to being me!
