Other Studio Updates
I am excited to have my studio back and renovated to enhance my productivity. I have been painting every day and am looking forward to putting my studio practice back in high gear. I have started some new explorations which will solidify into a working vocabulary soon and am also working on some grant proposals as well.
Artist, Joyce Conlon stopped into the studio for a visit recently.
She was the first to see the new painting in progress that I am working on. We had a wonderful conversation about painting and process. It was a brilliant reminder that all things come in good time….and we must be open to let the work unfold through the process of creating it and to have a little fun while doing it too!
