I got back last night from my month long residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. I apologize that I did not keep up with this blog as I thought I would. They keep us very busy there, which is a good thing! I miss waking up every morning to birds chirping, but I’m sure I’ll readjust to city life soon enough.

Here are some paintings I worked on while I was at the residency. They are all done in oils and I’m working on creating layers with thin coats of paint. One of the best things about working with oils is the additive and subtractive quality. In printmaking the only subtractive would be the addition of white, but with paint you can wipe and scrape away as you go. I’m enjoying the learning process and look forward to more experimentation with paint this Summer.
