Artist Residency Day 3:

Yesterday and today this piece called to me. It kept morphing out from under my brush, begging to be changed and not satisfied with any iteration. I think it finally settled down into a finished piece... at least for now (scroll down to the final image to see what it looks like now.) 

The building we're working in is such a peaceful place to be. The four other artists and I are being cared for by our community and it feels like a little cocoon. I'm really grateful to have this space to process things and to get messier than I usually do.

I'm reminded of the days when I shared a gritty studio with three other artists in Queens, NY. I realized I really do miss the camaraderie that sometimes comes with working in the same space as other creatives. Sharing dinners at night, discussing our process or laughing at silly things that have transpired over the course of the day is so good for my little soul. I'm already dreading the ending of this glorious time. I'm soaking it all in.
