Return to Lillian E. Smith Center

I'm completing a residency begun earlier in the summer.  I was here for a week in late May, then cut my stay short to be home for the big 30th anniversary celebration.  Now I'm back, staying for 10 days, doing painting.  I have a piece started that might become a design for tapestry.  Here's an in-progress photo:

The painting is on unstretched, gessoed canvas.  I'm using acrylic paint and graphite.  It's 50" W x 60" L.  Images are from photos I've made on morning walks while here. 

View from the table you see in the photo below...
Here's where I can get online to make my posts!  This is in the Common Room at the Center.

  1. That will make a lovely tapestry. Or four!

  2. Tommye. . .I've just spent the last few days reading through your blog, and I cannot thank you enough for sharing your work in this format.

    Look forward to seeing how these images develop.


  3. You've designed some gorgeous tapestries there. It must be your special place! It looks like this wil be another beauty! Enjoy your retreat time.
