I recently returned from the first two weeks of my residency in the Mojave Desert. While I had planned a few things I wanted to work on including some larger canvas sizes, the desert had other things in mind - including one of the largest snowstorms to hit the desert in a while. A wild experience to see and paint. I ended up working smaller on location to be able to quickly get at some of the big color relationships, and supplemented those with lots of drawings that can add to the color sketches when I develop larger work.
I’ll be back out to the Mojave for another two weeks later in the year, and will present an exhibition of the work in the not-too-far future.
