Just a few days left of our residency here at Brush Creek Ranch. Time stands still and whizzes by, simultaneously. This vast landscape inspires and intimidates at times, even being from Colorado. Our daily hikes have added dimension to our isolated camp, and from the high perches, there is a sense of scale and orientation, sometimes missing from the low valleys.Read More
I've noticed a pattern while at a month long residency, that almost without fail repeats itself. Currently I'm at the midpoint, where I feel that nothing is working, and I can't paint!
The first week is full of vim and vigor, as all the artists get to know each other, we set up our studios and get cracking. The second week builds on that momentum and the studio begins to fill up with, at least, works in process. Then the midway point happens - suddenlyRead More

This I think is partly the human condition, to beRead More
"Warning - extreme blowover danger!" The flashing signs crossing Wyoming on HWY 80 meant business. The 65mph + winds rattled and rocked my little Mini Cooper Clubman. But she held steady, helped I presume by the weight of 10 heavy panels for painting and a few hundred pounds of art supplies and other stuff. Art saves lives!
I was met by my host at the gates to this 15,000 acre luxury working cattle ranch in theRead More
One of my favorite of the etchings I did at London Print Studio last month. I layered a gestural painting I did with my drawing of water to create the etching plate, then rolled layers of ink on the surface of the plate for the color. Each print is unique in that way. Finished image is 10" x 8" on Fabriano archival paper.Read More
My month long residency here in Iceland is drawing to a close. My small group of fellow artists and I all lament the passing of this time too quickly, and I'm wanting to anchor the memories and experiences in a way that will create some permanency. It is all about the landscape in this world of fire and ice, and it does not disappoint. Every turn of the bend…Read More
