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.

Here's where I can get online to make my posts!  This is in the Common Room at the Center.

That will make a lovely tapestry. Or four!

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.

Blessings
