Green, red and brown

I am about to start packing up my studio.  My fellowship at Ballinglen Arts Foundation has come to an end and I am taking stock.  I have spent a great deal of time looking at seaweed and rocks.  Having never lived by the coast,  I really enjoyed exploring these resilient  plants at low tide.  In the studio I experimented rather than producing finished work.  I am leaving with lots of ideas, creative energy and excited to begin my next project.  I am sure seaweed will make an appearance in my work soon.  Another artist mentioned that fellowships give you the opportunity to soak up inspiration – like a sponge – and when you get home to ring it out and digest.  I like this idea.
