Domenic Cretara Part 2
Domenic was my painting teacher at The Art Institute of Boston. I think he is at UC Davis now. Seeing his work takes me back to the dirty, drafty, studio we worked in. The students were cold, and the models were freezing. A lot of my work from those years include the orange glow of the space heater reflected on the model's flesh.
Today I retrieved more of my old work from storage. There are a few paintings left from art school, a few drawings. I continue to weed out my work, or as my daughter reminds me: "Mom, you have one hell of a portfolio." she has no idea how much work I have lost track of and thrown away. Well, maybe she does, as she continues to build her 'life inventory' of artwork.
