The summer is cooking down quick here at the studio. It seemed briefly after graduation that the road stretched out a ways---but the final weeks till my first year in the MFA program at PAFA are burning off quickly. I just finished up te painting above and plan of trying to get a few more before school starts. The summer has been good work wise, though I never get as much done as I hope or catch up as much as I want on things like the Judge, but I see things being better by fall. I know the MFA will bring me a lot of new challenges and friends, that I am looking forward to. I even took a break from my PAFA studio and just painted at home or outside in Plein Air as they say. Over on my other two blogs Philadelphia Plein Air Painters
