Technically, this is Day 3 of my Residency.
Day 1 was the key hand off/orientation day.
Day 2 was a crazy shopping spree–Harbor Freight, Lowes, Michaels, BedBathBeyond, DanielSmith, DickBlicks.
Today is moving day. Relocating to a shipping container downtown is hard when you have a cozy home studio. It’s not plush, or decked out for comfort. It is an actual shipping container, complete with dust and cobwebs. I have the combo for the Honey Bucket on the fenced in premises, should the need arise. Otherwise, everything you see here in the photo–this is it. But I am excited to have the time and the space to really push myself creatively. The final installation will visually combine my film, music, art and activism — for the first time ever.
By the end of the day, I waxed and fused my first round of decorative papers. I wanted to see how the encaustic medium would affect the translucency of the paper, and how delicate/sturdy the papers would be, since they would be hanging on their own (not backed by wooden panel.)
