The Painting titled 'One Hundred Steps Along the Lynnhaven River' will be installed in the library at Kingston Elementary on Monday. It felt great to bring her home for the weekend, let her rest a bit and then with some additional time in the quiet of the studio to come to a point of... 'OK, now I'm a ready'.
Always a mysterious process, this allowing a painting to appear, this week's circumstances brought another opportunity for growth and discovery. It's the first artist residency where I simultaneously taught and painted. It was fun. I really enjoyed it. The kids were terrific and the entire experience provided a good stretch and a new level of flexibility.
