Day 4/Mineral School Residency

Last night was long and late. 
Stories, dreams, and healing shared.

Today was cool and misty.
Sleepy, I was sleepy all day. 
It inspired this collage.

Of course I revisited the bat house,
walking the curve of the lake.

And tonight Jess and I went to the cemetery
where the artist Velma Hale "Artist at Rest"
is regularly gifted heart shaped stones.

Day 3 at Mineral School!

 Started this morning with a collage in honor of the lunar eclipse. 
My first collage since high school, I think.

 Mineral School has all kinds of sweet things that embrace. 
Definitely a dream come true to be here.

 My studio/room has exploded with stuff everywhere. 
That's what collage does.

 The bat house — population 800.
This place in particular is inspiring me. 
I'll be back tonight, depending on the update of cougar information!

Mineral School: Day Two

I'm settling in at Mineral School.
It's a comfortable and welcoming place. 
Cozy despite the ratio of one artist per classroom.

One of my classroom work stations in action.
(I'm reading Flash Count Diary, if you are interested. 
It's exxxcellent.)

 The spaces are full of inspiration and companionship 
if you need a social break.

The food is delicious, 
the light is fantastic.
Dinner in 20 minutes!

Mineral School

It's my first day at my artist residency. 
I have two weeks at Mineral School.
And it's wonderful to be here.

I have my own room! And it's an old classroom. 
Little coat closets, like I had in the 1st and 2nd grade. 

There's two big chalk boards, and a recliner. 
More comforts than home.
