Passion for Life-Stephen Silver!
I highly recommend "Passion for Life", Stephen Silver's latest book. Silver's new book gives insight into his philosophies in life drawing and life itself. With over 200 figure drawings in many different styles and techniques, Passion for Life will inspire and give you a look into the art of life drawing with a whole new perspective never seen before. Passion for life, and all it contains is an insightful book, not just for the drawings, but the message it sends. The quotes, and inspirational thoughts, are not just for artists, but for anyone who aspires to be happy, content and productive.

Well, I'm just now getting back into my studio . . . . I've been traveling around quite a bit this summer and now it's time to get back into the swing of things. There's a lot of drawings and paintings in the mix!
I just got back from Fan Expo in Toronto and had a blast hanging out with my Imaginism friends as well as many others from all over the globe, it was like a family reunion! My good friend Marco Bucci invited Nathan and I to stay at his house for the week! It was great hanging out. Marco and I managed to get out early one morning for a quick plein aire sketch.
This was my take on our scene . . . about a 45 min oil sketch. I haven't done a plein aire in about a year, so I felt a bit rusty to say the least. It was a great time, ducks and geese all around us and to top it off, I broke in my new shoes by stepping in a few piles of duck poo . . . ahhhhhh, the things that come along with painting outdoors! Thanks for painting with me Marco!
I had a great time hanging out with artist David Colman at Fan Expo. David's work is amazing and he's an awesome guy too, turns out we have a lot in common too!
David and I thought we'd sell more books at the con if we took our shirts off! Well, it sort of worked . . . lets just say we ended up acquiring a lot of dollar bills and Canadian Loonies!
On our way home my pal Nathan and I stopped off at Niagara Falls! All in all, a great trip . . . now it's time to get back to the grind!
