Hola. Commo esatas? Bien bien!!
I am here at Altos de Chavon on an artist and art teaching residency in La Romana, Dominicana Republica.
It is incredible, and I am feeling so inspired and grateful to be here. I have been making so many paintings trying to capture the overwhelming beauty in the nature here. Also rediscovering monoprinting and other printmaking techniques and enjoying that. I am here til September 1st. 🙂
Hi friends! My Kickstarter campaign for my upcoming artist residency in La Romana, DR has 6 days remaining! Thanks for the support, pledge if you can! Great way to get a piece for a good price and help support my teaching career at the same time. 🙂
