For the newer group members, I visited LC in 2013 to see the exhibition at Unsettled, be spoiled rotten by Catherine, Don, Carey, Peg, Nolan and Dave (in absentia), and soak up some of your amazing landscape and culture. I guess I really hoped I could return some day.
My proposal for the residency, and my WBHD artworks, is to explore a visual relationship between our grassy-balls-on-sticks-with-tall-flower-spikes (grass trees – aka yaccas), and the grassy-balls-on-sticks-with-tall-flower-spikes in New Mexico (yuccas). I hope to have some great plein air trips into White Sands, and into the Organ Mountains. And Marlies and I will overlap by 2 weeks in October … we will be a force to be reckoned with! Wanna go sand sliding at White Sands, Marlies? Oh, and sketching too?
