Heading to Maine!

I'm behind in posting my 100 in 100, but I think I will be making them up in the next couple of weeks.  I have a two week Artist Residency in Acadia National Park in Maine.  I've been rushing around packing things, making panels, making boxes to hold wet panels, toning canvases, making piles of thing all over!  Can't wait to get up there and paint!  I will be doing a public talk to park visitors once each week, so I made a power point presentation for that (something I had never done on the the computer before!).  Part of my family will be coming up for the second week, which will be fun.  If you are ever interested in looking into artist residencies in the national parks, it is all online, and many, many parks and national sites have them all over the country.  The parks give you a free place to stay, usually have you do some public presentations, and donate a painting within a year.  Many of the parks put you up in wonderful, historic cabins and cottages.  Check it out.

I will be taking my laptop and will try to post as I do work.  Stay tuned in!

Your work is lovely! Both in oils and pastels. I love the vibrant colors. And what a great couple of weeks you have coming up. I look forward to seeing what you create. Congratulations on your artist residency and all you did to prepare for it...including learning Power point!
