Artist in Residence
Having arrived here in Queaux late on Monday evening; I moved into the Artiste Residency on Tuesday (which turned out to be quite an eventful day of which I will tell all in the Journal I will publish at the end of my stay here) only to start work on the Wednesday.
I have the use of a large galley / studio area with a kitchen space, then up one flight of stairs a large decked balcony space which is in full sun in the morning. This has a view across the river Vienne valley, (unfortunately the trees mask the river)
Then on up to the residency which has a bed and bathroom and very little else of consequence, Not overly comfortable but I am here to work
The date for the expo has been set at 25 – 27 September
I had very little time to acquaint myself with the area, in spite of this I do need to start work and get some paint laid down. At this stage I choose the warm colours of the stone buildings, and pan-tile roofs to work with
This at least allows me to get started.
First two boards 40” x 30” I am hoping that I will catch up with myself and have time to review all the work before the expo
Let me know your thoughts on the work so far, in the comments below
