Studio #2 - 2617 3rd avenue south

After leaving the my studio apartment, I moved into an apartment with 3 guys,  Scott, Chris, and Stefan. They gave me a sun room and a fairly large living room as my studio space.  I wish there were more picture from this era, but alas it was before digital was popular and we didn't have money for film to just waste; so I only have these 6.

Studio #2 was crazy, as life at the time was crazy.  We held drawing nights where we had girls we knew model nude for us as we drew them.  We read the cult classics, created art and music all of the time, and built our friendships.  I still know everyone I met there.

I painted two complete series of works here.  Both taught me a lot about oil paint and color.

We threw parties, large building wide parties nearly every month.  At these music and art parties I would simply give away oil paintings to whoever wanted one for what ever donation they could give.  I must have given away 200+ works of art while I lived here.  

Thanks for reading...
...more to come soon.
