Currently, I am back in my home town, St.Mary’s, Maryland completing an artist residency. First thing I noticed upon my return was how much everything changed. Not only the county but also St. Mary’s College. There is now a Marshalls, Famous Footwear, and a Super Walmart (yuck.) Not only are there the big box shops, there are also banners everywhere. Visual overload on signage. This also includes evacuation route signs as well. I am not sure what I am supposed to evacuate for, but I suppose if the time comes, I have the signs to point me out of harms way.
The Artist House is fantastic. Since it is associated with St. Mary’s College, I get all the perks of college. They have a state of the art swimming pool, so you guessed it. I am swimming every day. They also have scanners at my service, hence how I am able to display my daily ink drawings here on this blog. I have all these new ideas! My new painting currently has an elephant emerging! I hope to finish that tomorrow or Sunday.
I have giving a talk on Tuesday September 8th at 4:15 p.m. in the Boyden Gallery. I am almost prepared. Still editing my slides. I didn’t realize I have been so productive over the last 4 1/2 years.
Hope you enjoy my works in progress.
