I was looking back at my blog, and I realized that I only made two entries in all of 2015. It is now mid-January, and this is my third of 2016. At least I am following through on my New Year's Resolution to write more in this.
2016 has started with both a triumph and a disappointment. I've already written about the triumph, so I guess I should mention the disappointment. The Texas Academy of Figurative Art held a week-long workshop with famed artist Robert Liberace January 11 through 15. I had been approached about being one of two male models used in that, and I had responded by asking about scheduling. I only had three days of paid time off left at my regular job, but I would have gladly taken the other two off unpaid to have gotten a chance to model for this workshop. It was not to be, however, as I got an email in late December telling me that the male model positions had been filled.
The spring semester has now started at most colleges in the area, and I do have two model bookings scheduled for next week. It will be wonderful to get back into a regular drawing class again after the long winter break.
