Preparing for The Fields Project
On Sunday, June 15, I will head west for Oregon, IL in Ogle County. I will be doing a nine day artist-in residence with The Fields Project: Bringing Artists and Agriculture Together. While living with a family on their active farm, I will have the opportunity to paint the landscape of the Rock River Valley, the fields of corn and soybeans, and the barns and silos that dot those fields. This will be my fourth residency with the Fields Project and I am looking forward to a week spent painting outside in a beautiful part of the heartland of America. It is an unique experience and I hope to share my activities and paintings on this blog. Right now I need to get back to gathering materials and supplies for the trip.
