"Studio Space"

acrylic on hardboard

I have very fond memories of college. I was lucky enough to attend a really great art school, Pratt Institute. The experience really helped shape me into the person and artist I am today, above all Pratt gave me confidence. This painting is one of the studio classrooms in the Design Communication Arts Building. All of the classrooms were white but not in a clinical sterile way. Our studios were white in the empty canvas sort a way. I got the sense that every several years it was standard to paint yet another layer of flat white paint over all the walls and windows. I became fond of the huge windows that were over ten feet tall and let in natural light. I missed them when I left, I knew I would. I also missed the squeaking wood floors from the hundred year old buildings.
