Exploration for a mini-series — modeled after Focal Points… grass blades and encaustic medium… working title “Manicure.”
How to afford a studio space? I’m exploring offering an Airbnb experience: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/782104
The above photo is my sketch for a project for prospective student/visitors… make and take home a little piece of Maine-inspired art?
After a couple of years of intermittent production — with a new studio space and more legit ventilation setup it feels good to be able to step up to a clean and ready-to-go workspace.
Having more space means having more space to explore and I’m looking forward to playing with some more dimensional projects and constructing some installation-style pieces.
Lincoln Street Center will be having semi-regular open studios—if you are interested in a visit, please reach out. I’ll also be offering some one-on-one style intro’s to encaustic through airbnb (picture is placeholder).
Stay tuned for new work!
I would really like to try out a larger piece -- but the current work space doesn't allow for it. So my thought is to build a larger piece with smaller ones. Very quickly I realize much more of an investment larger work is (materials and time)... which means I really should create some studies to work out the ideas and structure first...
Having a show - or any other deadline oriented event really helps add fuel to the fire and fire under your feet. I began a series that started out from some sketches I made of geometric shapes and has morphed a bit back into the organic references I seem to be drawn to... looking forward to developing this.
