Knowing –Art of Learning

Art of Learning


with 4 comments

My first working experience was in the New York Fashion Industry, 7th Ave as it was called. I don’t think we thought of it as an industry.

I got to meet people like Richard Blauner, (who gave me two ties from A. Sulka) Jerry Silverman, Herbert Sondheim and others. I was one of the first to see the original dresses and coats as they came back from the Paris Fashion Shows. In other words – I was in shipping. But none the less, I still admired the beauty of what I was seeing.

This painting is a layout of a series of paintings having to do with fashion for a show this winter.

  4. When I post these sketches (or starts) knowing that they will eventually evolve into a painting that may be very different then how it started out, there is this concern that I not let the people down. That what the painting becomes is ‘better” then what it was. But there is no better.

    Thanks Birgit, Ambera and Angela
