Couple weeks into my new window. Its so difficult making progress when I only have a 3.5 hours a week to dedicate to glass works. Hopefully the tide will change and I’ll be able to spend more time in the studio.
Here are two 15 min drawings of Tendai from yesterday morning. After a long work weekend it feels really good to get into the studio and draw.
This past week has been a test of endurance! Wednesday I finished my first stained glass window, Thursday night I worked on a 3 hour long pose of Tendai and topped the evening off with my friend Natalie at the Lone Palm. Then I tended bar at the 500 club Friday night, attended a wedding in Oakland Saturday, worked happy hour at the 5 on Sunday and started Monday morning off with a triptych of 15 minute drawings. Tomorrow I officially start my second window! more pictures to come :)
Tryin’ to hammer out the final design for my next window 👋🏽🕺🏻

Spent Monday morning drawing at 23rd Street Studio. Here are a couple sketches of our model Jeremy during that session. Full (15 min pose) Portrait (40 min pose)
Here's a new window in the works -
Each window i'm making is supposed to pair with one of my latch hook rugs. I would love to eventually sell them as sets and work on commission for unique homes and spaces. More photos to come!
Currently working on a series of stained glass windows to accompany my latch hook rugs. Here's another idea sketch for a possible window in the works! More photos to come :)
I've spent the past few months working on a few very special pieces. Here is a picture of one in progress in my living room. After putting in more than 125 hours i cannot believe it isn't even half way done! More pictures to come :)
Last week one of my favorite models moved back to Israel after modeling for 30 years in the Bay Area. Here is a diptych I made a couple months back. I feel so grateful for the past 4 years - thank you, Merav!

Happy to get back into figure drawing after being on the road. Here's a quick sketch from last week :)
Finally finished an 500 Club advert I've been working on for a while. If you're in the neighborhood come say hello! I'm behind the bar every Sunday from 3-8pm :)
Today I stayed home, drew an old napping dog named Sparky & finally found a home for some stained glass my dad made. The bottom tulip piece was from an old building on Chicago's South Side that he re-leaded and the piece above was made with antique leaded glass. I am very happy to have these here with me in San Francisco.
Happy to be home and drawing in SF! Signed up for a great figure drawing class at 23rd Street Studio. If you're looking for a nice studio with great models in San Francisco look into Michael's class! I spent the morning up in the loft drawing with a birds eye view. http://23rdstreetstudio.com/
