During the past 12 months Giz has been coming to our apartment every so often, while we are at work to develop her portfolio for her art class. She is at the New York School on 8th St. We went to an opening of an exhibition she had in February and loved what she had done thus far. In order to graduate from her class she needs to have a final exhibition. She's using the sketches and paintings she did of the views from our windows as her body of work for the exhibition.
It's on next week and she still has things to finish. She had an idea about one corner of her painting which was hands holding a newspaper against purple trousered legs. So on Tuesday night she came to our place and I was her"model". She was only here for about 20mintues long enough to rearrange the furnitrue, do some quick sketches, have a quick chat and then off to more painting.
