greta tillinger 1914-2015

my mother was more than the sum of the details of her life: born in Vienna in 1914, emigrated to New York City, lost her mother in the Holocaust, married, had a daughter, divorced after 36 years of a largely unhappy marriage.

avid traveler, voracious reader, New Yorker subscriber, Jeopardy fan. cancer survivor, critic of everyone and everything. occasional artist, infrequent poet. she was complicated and smart, difficult, unhappy, witty, judgmental (not least of herself). having outlived, by many years, a wide circle of friends. she died peacefully on March 15, 2015.

we warm up with 30-second sketches. sometimes these please me the most.










the rest are generally six minute sketches -
a perfect length of time

MoMA sketching

in conjunction with the exhibition 'the paris of toulouse-lautrec', the museum of modern art is conducting occasional instructor-lead sketching sessions. with models dressed and accessoried in belle epoque fashion it's a challenge a pleasure to participate.

actress corey tazmania (seen below) is especially fun to draw. she's done her research and her poses would please lautrec himself.
