MGF Artist Residency

Pictured: Fungus, 2014. Pastel and watercolor on paper, 12" x 18".

This project spanned the duration of a 2.5 week artist residency at the Morris Graves Foundation in Loleta, CA. Home of the Mystic Painter himself, 'The Lake' is a wonderland for spiritual reflection and artistic expression. During this time, I was creating, meditating, and studying the inspired environment. The result is a series that travels the line of tension between a physical reality, and that of unseen truth. These paintings also explore a relationship between dry and wet media; pastel and watercolor.
