December 2016

Dark days. Wanting snow. Redwing blackbirds in the cottonwoods, singing hyms to black sunflower seeds and another sunrise.

In the fall my studio and field work focused on my residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute. Water Rights is the themed residency that started in July 2016 and runs through June 2017. While Standing Rock stood its ground and the presidential campaign spiraled into the worst reality TV ever, I was looking for signs of beaver in the Santa Fe River. Walking through felled cottonwoods. What's emerged in this first phase of my residency is an expanded, preConquest story of where I live. Check out my blog on this site for more.
