Oops. This should have posted on the 10th:
Greetings from Yucca Valley! I am staying at one of the Joshua Tree Highland Artist’s Residency sites this month, specifically the Rieman House in Flamingo Heights, about 25 minutes from the Joshua Tree National Park.
Whelp, I’m leaving for my month-long artist’s residency in Joshua Tree Thursday morning, and I’ve been gathering up all my art supplies. I’m going to need to be ready by tomorrow night so I can just load up my car and go, but I’m still a little scatter-brained on what I’m bringing.
One of my all time heroes has up and passed away to be with the love of his life, one of my other heroes.
Still working on the turtle house, little by little, because I’ve been busy with other things lately. Namely, getting my whole world prepared for departing from my regular life for a whole month. I’ll be out of here in less than a week now and I have a lot to square away. I would like to finish this painting before I go, but I don’t know if that will happen. I’m busy and I’m lacking the motivation. I might end up bringing it with me to my artist residency in Joshua Tree.
I just had to give props to Amy Schumer for speaking out about the sexual assault made on her by a former boyfriend. Please go to the link, as it is important fucking info.
Just writing and doing a little bit of drawing, not enough painting (as usual) but I am inspired. Luckily, not too inspired, like I was kind of complaining about the other day. I’ve been having these personal little art thoughts though.
