Wow, What an incredibly productive two weeks amidst glorious sunny weather, brilliant scenery, and excellent company.
This was probably the most optimal transition form my graduate program – the ability to hunker down and explore new ideas without the looming deadline of a critique or installation.
I appreciate the gift of time, not just the solo work hours in the studio, but the time you all spent with me on hikes, mushroom hunting excursions, and trips to other sites around here.
I can honestly say I learned quite a bit about plant life, seasons, various animals, and the moon – which has really galvanized the content and production of my work.
