Residency Drawings

 During my time at the VSC I gave myself a daily drawing exercise to get the creative juices flowing. I put up a roll of drawing paper that was about 4' tall x 20' long. Every day I would start my studio time with the drawing, using whatever medium was handy.  Also whenever I had a "block" or was waiting for another work to dry or my hot box to heat up I would work on the drawing until I was ready to get back to my "real" work.  A funny thing happened during this process. My drawing project ended up being one of my favorite things I did during the residency! I guess there is something to just letting go!

VSC Residency

Studio View

Triptych, Untitled

Today was my second day the the Vermont Studio Center. So far it has been a productive residency. I am amazed at how much I am able to accomplish here. Without distractions and demands I am quite prolific! I am working a few pieces that have been floating around in my head for the last month. As well as trying out some new ones.  When I set up my space I hung a roll of drawing paper around the perimeter of the room. I am going to use this for my daily expressive drawings and for a way to work through any creative blocks. The studio here is spacious and I have a wonderful view!
