It’s hard to believe it was only three short days ago we were in the studio looking at everyone’s amazing personal projects. Our last two weeks have been filled with activities too numerous to list, but a highlight would certainly include our trip to the west. We were lucky to get some pretty amazing weather […]
This past week started with some life drawing with a nude model, and everyone continued to work diligently in the studio preparing for our first critique.

Sitting gracefully with the peacock are Rosie’s great aunts; Sheila and Brigid O’Gorman. To […]
It’s hard to believe the summer is over. It seems like just yesterday we were picking up the first group from the airport, and now the farm is quiet again. We had such a great time with everyone in our first full nine week summer. We’re really going to miss the group of characters we […]
