Kickstarter Campaign for Summer Residency in NY

Oil Paintings of New York's Burlesque

A couple weeks ago I launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help me pay model fees while I attend a residency with the Art Students League of New York at their Vytlacil Campus in Sparkill, NY.

I am just over the moon that I met my $3500 goal with 9 days to spare, and have added a stretch goal of $5000 to allow for furniture and props. If I reach my stretch goal, I will create a video of my painting process at the residency and every backer will receive this, regardless of pledge amount!

These are the models funded by my Kickstarter campaign!

There are numerous pledge levels with rewards ranging from a personalized postcard and signed posters to limited edition prints and original artwork.

There are just 9 days left in the campaign if you'd like to contribute and snag some great art! You can keep track of my progress here, on my homepage, and on my Kickstarter page.

More Life Drawing Videos - Croquis Cafe

Upon posting on Facebook about enjoying the New Masters Academy's videos, a friend let me know about this wonderful series of free life drawing videos called Croquis Cafe... and there are more than 100!

These are so helpful in between life drawing sessions at Red Door Studios, great practice, and very fun. Sometimes my focus on long-term paintings and busy schedule make it hard to fit in lots of 'play' art time. But I can find half an hour to go through one of these videos while I enjoy some coffee! 

I will be adding more of these free artist resources and online videos as I find them.
