Every day while at the HFA residency, I am making a repetitive motion drawing first thing, then I cut it up into a postcard, write "I am being an artist today" and mail it off. I've been thinking about all the different "hats" I wear and my peers wear, and how we decide what role we are going to be in our life each day, every hour, etc. So while I am at my shed, I am being an artist.
today i finally started drawing on the outside of my habitat studio. this is a close up of the drawn shapes, inspired by the tracings i made from where the paint bled underneath the painter's tape when i was making a habitat shape where i have been writing my thoughts and ideas while i am at this residency. there will be 2 panels with these drawings on them, with the neoprene shapes hanging in an open space between them. the strings and pushpins are there to keep the drawings in a straight line (they aren't staying)

for my hfa residency i am creating neoprene links based off of an accidental shape that was created when i masked off something with painters tape but the paint seeped under anyway. the links will be hung and stretched in part of a wall, and i am drawing on the other panels with the shapes. hopefully it will look cool!
