I’ll also have issues of QUICKIE #4, edited by Rebecca Mock, which is really exciting! I contributed a “spread” to the cause:

Hope to see you there!

Two Watercolors from May 2012

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Here are two watercolors from the journals I kept during the month of May, while I was volunteering at Farm Sanctuary in Orland, California. The rest of the watercolors, as well as the transcribed entries, will be part of a final project that currently has no structure nor timeline. I don’t mean to be a tease; hopefully these will satisfy and wet your palate while I work to figure it out.

I’m Back!: Photos from Farm Sanctuary

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

I spent the month of May in California, at Farm Sanctuary’s Orland shelter. It was an incredible time that’s difficult to describe. I volunteered as a Shelter Intern, where I cared for animals, and met over a hundred new friends (about eight of them being human). I painted lots of watercolors and kept a daily journal; out of these artifacts I will make “a thing.” As that is what artists do. But, to satisfy your appetite in the immediate, I also took tons of photos. Here are a few that I thought best represented one of the most amazing experiences I’ve been a part of.
