Notes From My Residency
Now the real work begins, back in my studio from reference photos. Now I can work in my comfort zone, using all of the photos I took at various sites for a week. I will use the notes and research I did for each of the sites visited. I think of the actual residency as a research project, doing most of the painting after the trip in my studio. I did manage to finish eight paintings in St Augustine and nearby sites. Now I will do some larger format paintings as well as studies about the project in the months to come.
