A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

While I firmly believe that renovation is up there with death and divorce, I am still excited about the fadade restoration where my studio is located. This landmark building was studio for many other artists before me. Notably, Isobel Bishop, associated with Social Realism, painted people in and around Union Square, sometimes right outside her window. These are some of Kurt's snaps from his daily diary of the process.
