Just below the far window is the kitchen sink. When Hopper rinsed out his coffee cup the window offered a sweeping view of Cape Cod Bay.

Philip Koch is preparing to move to being a full time painter. This Fall Koch is teaching his single final Life Drawing class at MICA in Baltimore, where he has been a Professor for many years. Most of that time he has chosen a reduced course load so he could spend more time painting. He explains "Currently I have nearly a half dozen major oil paintings in progress. I will miss the people at MICA but I'm excited to have the extra time to focus on pulling these paintings together. Then of course I'll be starting a whole bunch of new ones too I know." Here's a photo taken in his studio earlier this week with a half completed 72 inch canvas on one of his easels.

Philip Koch receiving a personal tour July 13 from Anna Marley, the Curator of Historic American Art at Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, who organized the museum's new exhibition From the Schuylkill to the Hudson: Landscapes of the Early American Republic. Here are Koch and Marley with PAFA's large Frederic Church oil that is included in the exhibition.

"What excited me about the 
exhibition is it looks at the little known early roots of the American landscape painting movement. There is a long history of environmental sentiment running all through American landscape art and it's on full display here. In my own painting I hope to re-ignite the same sense of wonder and celebration of the natural world" says Koch. You can read Koch's blog post about the exhibition here,

These three Koch oils were just installed for the new exhibition Shoreline at Button Gallery in Douglas, MI. There is an opening reception for the show Saturday, 7/13 from 6 - 8 p.m.

"I grew up on a hilly stretch of one of the Great Lakes. One of my dearest memories was climbing the tallest hill on the shore and peering down at the patterns the wind would make as it swept across the water. It seemed like nature was a magical and living force" says Koch. "Those vivid images were very much in mind as I made these new paintings."
