Fall 2020 Covid Seclusion Residency- Some Visuals
Dec. 5, 2020
Hi everyone! (This page is not public on my website, just for family).
We are sad to be packing up and getting ready to leave, but so glad we made the trek out here to work and visit many of you. It has been a pleasure to share lockdown with you all!
As I mentioned on our Zoom call, here are some photos of the process and work that have developed over the last 2 months.
A huge thanks to Gail and Olive at the Kitchen, for so generously letting me transform their lovely space and enjoy it for two months. A very peaceful place to work during this oh so crazy time. And thanks to Ben for schlepping a truck full of tarps and easels and other studio paraphernalia, and Marie for the support and easel loaner. And Greg, well because he helped me schlep everything and put it all together.
Color Bundle- 8x8 acrylic on panel—
this little painting was created while I was in quarantine, (on the back porch of our house rental) and sold in the Fair Share Art Auction, which benefitted a couple of charities during Covid. The auction page is here: https://www.instagram.com/fairshareartauction/
The transition from the Kitchen to a studio space took some work, but it was super peaceful and an inspirational place to work.
After setup, the first order of business was stretching and gessoing some canvases. Then (below) I painted a small series of 6 pieces as studies for some larger work. I am happy with them and envision some larger pieces developing out of them.
These first 3 are now on sale at Massachusetts at 13Forest Gallery, which is where I'm represented. Then the next 3 pieces are for sale on Artsy.net.
I then began some larger work and worked on several pieces at one time. As you scroll down you can see various iterations of them.
As you can see, the large pieces above and below have some similar characteristics to the first small ones. These will be finished when I get home.
