I am trying my darndest to update this site a bit more, it's hard to blog when all I want to do is be drawing, grilling, hiking, camping, traveling or doing anything that involves being OUTDOORS now that it is finally nice out. I have had the overwhelming task of balancing my day job with researching and applying for residencies and shows, drawing, cleaning, being outside, organizing my image inventory, blogging, keeping up on email, visiting galleries, visiting museums, and so many more tasks that I feel have become mandatory, when in reality all I want to do is draw, travel and be with friends! I wonder if I will ever get out of my own way.
On a positive note, I finally sent out my application to the residency in Australia I have been lusting after and gave it a plethora of good luck energy before handing it over to the residency decision making gods. I am also completing an application to a residency in Georgia that would allow me at least a month hiatus from all the aforementioned duties! I had the difficult task of finding two people to write reference letters for this particular residency, not an easy task! For a perfectly worded take on how annoying these letters can be to obtain and to write, visit Joanne Mattera's blog.
As of now we have a good roster of artists contributing to the second "This Collective Pull." I will post the official roster after August 3rd when the invitations go out. Save the date though, August 22nd! It is sure to be a great evening with really great art!
Alright everyone, I need to get to the studio! I spent the last month of weekends away from my beloved space and although I love Boston, D.C, Vermont and Canada trips, I love my studio time as well. So as I said before, I will do my best to post more often on here, even for a quick update. Maybe the next drawing you see will have a Maple leaf, a moose, a bean, some cheese and Obama's face in it! All the best!
Also, check out my friend Julie's blog, OrchidGrey. It's new and it's fabulous! (She is also helping to co-curate "This Collective Pull")
