Photos from Hambidge

Image
In November I enjoyed an artist residency at Hambidge Residency Center in North Georgia. Here are a few of the thousands of images I took, mostly for my new paintings. To read more about my adventure, check out my Without a Net blog. The above image is from the Hambidge grounds. They own 600 acres in the breathtaking North GA mountains. 



My studio table


I'd break the internet if I posted all the mushroom photos I took. Here is one.


There were several site works of art in the woods.


We visited a few of the other artist studios. 


We had a little fall color left. It was chilly, which meant less sweat and fewer ticks.


The many pools and ponds made for good reflection photos.


Memorable Memorial Day

I drove around taking snaps on  quick trip home to Steamboat Springs to see family for Memorial Day. My student's need some landscape images to work from. Good thing I grew up in Paradise.

Good Read

Unrelated to the photo above, my good friend Kerry Madden-Lunsford just had this wonderful article published in the Los Angeles Times. I enjoyed it so much I just had to share. It's about her visit to a local prison to teach children's book writing to inmates.
