MR. Jody Baral everyone.

The first image linking to this post, “the party of the Orange and Brown couch”- our last  evening of discussions.

Once again, I had the privilege of meeting an artist doing a one month residency at Medalta. Jody Baral  is anything but  unproductive.  Hailing from Los Angeles, California, with one month of work ahead of him, Jody started working at 100% efficiency. Driving and getting to Medalata was a first impression  , showing his persistence and drive to work in art. Once again an artist came into the studio with energy, purpose and infectious positivity.  It is something to meet a charismatic individual and someone with a strictly honest personality he was never afraid to give you his honest opinion, in such a way that helped, not hinder. And who can forget the beret he wears, a constant reminder of his nature.

I can’t help but hope I meet him again. To share ideas, jokes and a nice bottle of red wine. IMG_20140130_134543 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134537 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134435 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134341 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134242 - Copy - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134238 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134202 - Copy - Copy IMG_20140130_134156 - Copy (2) - Copy IMG_20140130_134119 - Copy - Copy - CopyIMG_20140201_144308
