Once a week visiting professionals from the Boston area make one-hour presentations on their subject of expertise to the MFA painting and sculpture students. So far we have learned about the birth and death of stars from a brilliant MIT physics professor and eaten freshly harvested oysters shucked by the operations manager of a south shore farm. One of the earliest requests made of the graduate students was to contribute a set of drawings to be given to each speaker in lieu of monetary payment. The ten drawings from each artist were assembled into ten portfolios. I focused on the the view from my studio window. Although my drawings have already been handed in, the process immediately became an important part of my work.
All drawings: sumi ink and bamboo pen on Arches cotton paper, 7-1/2 x 10 inches
