I'm still in the desert. I have been extremely fortunate to have spent the majority of the past two weeks drawing in Tony Ryder's class as an alternate. In the coming weeks, I will be spending quite a bit of time there as the next portrait model. Although, I won't be drawing or painting at that time, I'll still be around to soak in some of Tony's teaching and critiques - plus, it will enable me to stick around a bit longer (it really is a wonderful environment for me to be in.. I am so happy to be here).

I don't think I've mentioned it on here yet, but Krista, Chris (Rigney), and I are going to have an exhibition this August in New York. With thirteen pieces to show, I have my work cut out for me. There are quite a few seeds planted in my head - with the help of the desert sun, I'll be doing my best to bring them to life. Once I make some headway, I'll be posting (on here, and more frequently in Flickr).

So, life is good (not to mention that baseball season is about to begin)! Late.
