A Fond Farewell.

Well friends, the time has come for me to bid adieu to the Hambidge Center.  My time here has been meaningful and fruitful. I created a number of works that I can say I am happy with (and sold a few too!) but I also made an amazing move forward as I made the jump back into painting after years of working with pastel.  I also formed strong friendships here,  people from all over the country with a strong passion for their art, I hope to stay in touch with all of them.  I must say I am a bit sad leaving my beautiful studio and this wonderful environment but I am ready to bring the momentum and energy I gained here back North (where I'm not the one with the accent) and I am excited to see what comes next.  Of course it is a beautiful, sunny day here making my departure that much harder. A few images:

Mr. Big the Hambidge Kitty, helped to see me off, and an image of the Fischer Studio returned (almost) to it's original state, with one addition.  I'm proud to join the hundreds of other Fellows that have passed through the Hambidge Center, it's signing the stairs that makes me an official Hambidge Fellow for life!

My trip home includes stops in D.C and Rhode Island and I will be posting along the way. I will also do another few posts once I am back North to update you on my last week at Hambidge (including the unloading of the Anagama kiln...) So stay tuned friends, and thanks for listening! 

Up next: Bea goes to DC! ETA: 6:00pm

Sorrowful ends bring better beginnings and all of that crap! Are you coming to Providence?!

Thanks was a bit sad having to clean it all up after calling it home for five weeks.
Hi Andrew - I'm excited about what will come next after the progress I made there. And, no Providence this time around...but soon! SOON!

I hope you keep up with the frequent blogging even now that you are back. I miss reading about and SEEING what you are working on!

Michael, I will continue blogging, the transition back into reality has brought with it quite a few tasks to clear up, and I am on a role painting. I will post soon! Glad you enjoy the blog.
