Earlier this fall I did a residency at a woodsy property outside Nevada City called Mizzy Gizzy...built and dwelt upon by two lovely families (Doug, Vanessa, and Isobel.....Kevin, Cheryl, Ruby, and Chiara) who made my stay cozy, and let me wander around and draw and make a map of their good corner of things.
A month after I did my time, I put up a small art show in the small cabin where I slept (with a lofted bed under a roof that hinges open to the stars....so good), and designed a little yarn marked hunt through the woods (Hansel and Grettel style) out to the sites where I sat to draw, and the sites where I began two sculptures, (a big pile of sticks, and a digging circle of rocks) which grew with the help of the crew of buddies who joined me for the weekend.
My friends Terri and Sarah just passed on some fine photos of the retreat that had me excited to break it down and blog it out.

(and here's some of my things to boot:)
anyone else have a cabin for me to draw around? I'll do it please.
