I am thinking a lot about how to paint people from life in
my studio. I think if my model, or customer and I rapid tested
before a session, and if I wore a mask too, I could continue. For
instance this young woman, Donnelle was part of my Dance
series more than a decade ago. She was my son's high school
friend, and a wonderful model.
And then -- about a year ago she was my student at George
Brown! The high school friends had grown up, gone to
universities in different cities, and lost touch. And suddenly
this young woman was in my Zoom sessions, and that was
surprising and wonderful.
So if I do back to painting live in my studio, I would love
to paint Donnelle again. She won't be my student again,
I don't think, because I only teach one course.
Have a loving your life day.
