Included here are residency journals from the artist residencies I’ve done since 2009. The links below will guide you to the specific residency in which you are interested.
These writings are journals, recorded daily. They are informal, showing work and thought in progress. They were written at the end of long days of painting and hiking and thus are not polished.Â Follow them by clicking on the “next” buttons. I have added final thoughts to a couple of the residencies, ideas and work which occurred after I returned home; these are not more polished but may summarize some of the adventure.
Because I am interested in space and place, I have spent most of my travel time since 2006, when I was at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument as an artist in residence painting the place, working toward capturing the space as well as the human interventions. You can find blog posts about some of these travels in the following links:Â Jerome, Arizona;
Pine Creek (Pennsylvania) Gorge; Painted Hills, John Day Fossil Beds, Mitchell, Oregon.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions about the residencies or about being an artist-in-residence.
