Yesterday was the last day of a three week artist residency sponsored by Evans Encaustics. One artist used my big studio and five HotBoxes, multiple griddles, lots of supplies to create a large body of work.
This year Marci Borland delved into the heady, thoughtful aspects of her Chants series, some of which will certainly appear on her website this fall. Because the studio is at Green String Farm, there were hundreds of acres of walking, tasting fresh organic produce, and finding helping hands from the farm for heavy lifting.
Even in a work session, there are necessary moments of escape and play. I made a mess with a Paint Stick to test it and Marci added some drawing... all in fun.
