The investigation into the Mendocino Art Center was super fruitful. I’m honored to report that, starting October 1st, I’ll be one of the Artists-in-Residence at MAC, staying in walking distance from the ocean, through late April of 2018. My painting studio will be right next to one of the main classrooms in the building next-door.
My intent, in this 6.5 months, will be to work to bring my ocean paintings above-water, infuse the force, spray and tide pools where the North Pacific crashes into the rugged headland rocks into the art. I don’t intend to leave my underwater/ saltwater aquarium works behind, either, as they satisfy something “deep”.
I think I’m going to try doing a Video Log VLOG thingy about the residency. I’ll let you know.
