This is a sketch from a photo of some herring she took down our dock which she will use as reference for a much larger piece she will be working on. Look for our video interview tomorrow on these pages in which she begins her work on the larger work.
She also would like for people to pop in and check out her works in progress at the Goetemann Artist in Residency Studio (GRS) at 51A Rocky Neck Avenue

About The Goetemann Artists in Residency Program from The Rocky Neck Art Colony website:
This is the 8th year of the Goetemann Residency Program. The quality of the applications submitted continues to rise and there has been an increase in our geographical range. Applicants have come not only from the Boston area, state of MA and New England, but now there are many more national and international candidates. Choosing only 3 from this list caused us to examine more carefully candidates who best serve the colony’s interest in diversity of stylistic orientation, career level, and understanding of the mission and objectives of our community of Rocky Neck.
