Spanish Residency

Artwork created while on the month long residency near Barcelona Spain. With each residency, I bring no preconceived notions of what I will create allowing the landscape, people and experiences dictate what becomes.

For the Spanish residency, I brought only acrylic paints in vibrant hues, and added to those paints with colours found only in Barcelona by a Spanish paint manufacturer. Size was no issue (except when getting from train to train) and much of the works were created on the wall of the residency on unstretched canvas and vinyl paper (not yupo). The landscape and its ghostly figures in the mountain were a huge source of inspiration and enticement.

These works were created through finger painting, no brushes. I felt the immediacy and responding of the paint, alla prima.
