Notes From My Residency Journal
I'm off to Fair Oaks for a week of painting. Unfortunately, Mary Jane won't be able to come this time. I am taking a box full of painting panels from 5x7 to 9x12 inches. I am also bringing a 20x24 and 18x24 canvas to work on in the thoughtfully provided studio upstairs in the old house. My plan is to spend mornings out in the fields painting, mid day up in the studio and back out to the fields in late afternoon when the light is wonderful. In the evening, I'll enjoy a walk around the field. There is no TV, a good thing, as I will spend some time reading. On Saturday I will head over to Prairie Creek Lodge, not far from Fair Oaks, for an exhibition and sale of the paintings from the group project Six Artists Six Prairies. I'm looking forward to a wonderful, very focused week at my favorite residency. I'll share it all with you when I get back.
