WHO’S BEEN HERE?
Charley Young has been working on both paper works and grant writing during this week … which is making me realize I should do some grant writing soon as well.
Francesca Piredda worked on the ending for her next book while here. Finding an image that best represents the work done by a writer during their time at the residency, but I love this mini writer installation I found in Francesca’s studio.
Rob Davidovitz took full advantage of the printshop while here creating a series of 25 varied linocut prints, complete with some amazing blends and rainbow rolls.
We have also been sharing the house with two awesome guys from Germany, Philip and Tobi. Kyle and I met Philip two years ago when his father Niki ran an etching workshop here at the studio. They have been helping us with house projects and working on some personal artistic pursuits as well.
WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
The trailer renovations have continued over the past week. The floor is now out, the walls are cleaned off, and plans are being drafted for the inside. This project is so exciting!
WE DID IT! We raised the money for the letterpress thanks to all of you and your amazing support! We are beyond excited for this new addition to the studio.
With the help of the awesome German’s we have gotten a lot of yard work done which is such a great feeling. This week we are going to be putting in vegetable beds!
I have been working on my paintings for the Indiegogo Campaign, which has resulted in a number of small “sketches” (warm ups for the larger paintings). Turns out I kinda like these little works so I started putting them up on Etsy last week.
I also put up all of Kyle’s Gemstone Prints , a task that has been sitting on my to-do list for a least three months now. Yeah to productivity!
We even found sometime this week to take some of our guests to Point Petre and Little Bluff.
Until next week!
