Some of you may know that I had hoped to go on a month-long painting sojourn on the Oregon Coast this winter (I’ve gone 4 times in the last 6 years). Since I’m highly inspired by different places, this trip has become increasingly important to me and my creative process. I’m sad to report that the expense of opening my new studio last summer and the reality of slow sales will keep me home this winter.
So, since I won’t be viewing the Pacific from the Oregon coast this winter, I’m looking for some alternative inspiration in the form of different places (which I’m going to call “elsewhere”).
I’d love to invite you to participate in a series of blogs I’ll be doing about a “view of elsewhere”. More specifically, a snapshot out YOUR studio or creative space window/door. You can include part of your studio in the view, but I’m keen on seeing the “elsewhere” that is what you see when you gaze out.
I plan to keep my posts on this simple – just a few thoughts on “views of elsewhere” and how it is impacting me in my studio. And then I’ll include your snapshot with your caption, and a link to your blog/website.
So, if you’d like to participate, all I need from you is a snapshot out your studio (or wherever you create) window/door (in a size/resolution you’d use for your own blog/website), an accompanying short caption, and the link you’d like me to include in my post. I’ll use as many snapshots as I can, but if you’d like to participate, email me your submissions by 1/31/2009.
