After the great strides I made with my works during my too-short, one-month, fall residency at MacDowell in 2006 I was determined to return to take up where I left off. In that short but highly productive residency, I was able to increase the intensity and variety of the color palette I could use due to the spectacular fall foliage and was able to extend the act of painting to a full-day’s length which allowed the process of applying paint to become a performative act. I was also able to successfully increase the scale of my final works to 60″ x 48″ and now I wanted to make an entire series of these larger paintings that would use the fall palette. Luckily I was able to do just that, in part because I was granted my first sabbatical in the fall of 2008 and I was simultaneous accepted back to the MacDowell Colony that fall.
