I’ve been selected to be a visiting artist with this year’s Fields Project in Oregon, Illinois, and I’m really excited about it. I’m especially excited to be photographing farm life. It’s a subject I’ve been wanting to work on for a long time.
Visiting artists stay with a farm family for the nine-day event, and they’re free to work on any project in any medium. Because encaustic is somewhat cumbersome to travel with, and I’d have to have access to electricity, I’ve decided to leave the wax at home and go with the cameras.
On the last Sunday of the event, Fields Project visiting artists will display and sell their work alongside regional artists at the Fine Arts and Crafts Festival at Mix Park, located on Rt. 2, south of Rt. 64 in Oregon, IL.
If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello!
