Today I started a new copy at the National Gallery of Art, as part of the Registered Copyist Program. It has been a year and a half since I completed my last copy, Sir Anthony Van Dykes' , The Virgin as Intercessor. I am currently working on Willem Claezs Heda's painting, Banquet Piece with Mince Pie. I have always loved the Dutch Masters and their Vanitas paintings and am finally getting to copy one. This should be a very educational experience for me and hopefully will help me to improve my own still life works.
I am still dilegently working on the opening of my new studio and gallery space in Little Washington. Please come out on March 14th for my grand opening celebration.
