Yesterday I bid farewell to Johnson, Vermont. After one shuttle and two airplanes, I was back in Minnesota.
Below are shots of the Red Mill in Johnson, my studio, and pieces I completed during my residency.
Oatmeal and toast, an hour of figure drawing, and now laundry. I’ll hopefully spend the rest of the day continuing to carve the cherry block for Kookies. After dinner, the final resident slide show is scheduled where I will have a chance to dazzle everyone with my incredible artwork. Or, put them all to sleep.
Below are images from both today’s figure session, as well as some from last week.
Below: my 2nd shot at building a collagraph plate. I printed this, and was not happy with the results. I think that some of the recesses are too deep, and the paper cannot get in to grab the ink. I may try to decrease the depth in these grooves and give it another shot before I leave.
