The last day of the workshop was a Saturday. I was so sorry to see it end. Max set up a difficult pose for the model, Pat, who somehow managed to hold it all day with a few breaks. Max asked him to pose as if he were just getting up out of the chair. This meant that Pat couldn't relax at all, but had to keep his muscles tense all of the time. I'm not used to working on the same alla prima piece for an entire day, but I did it that day and the result please me. Afterwards, we all went out to eat at a Greek restaurant in Astoria, Queens.
