Artist Residency Day 2:

Today, I got into a groove of exploring and playing with my paints. My body is more settled into the environment. I normally paint alone so it's a change working in close proximity to other artists in the building, but I'm enjoying being closer to other creatives! It's so lovely to be able to throw around ideas and comment on each other's work as it evolves. 

I borrowed/stole some oil pastels from a fellow artist and I've been exploring mark making. I'm giving myself more permission to be wild and bold. My artist soul is crying, "Paint! Dance! Sing! You already have the freedom to do all of these things! Embrace it! Run after it!" 

I'm so excited to see what new ideas emerge on canvas and paper tomorrow!
