In the little yurt on the good heart farmstead in worcester, vt, where I painted for the spring and summer, I curated an exhibition with selected paintings and field studies. Outside you could stand and look at the worcester mountain range itself. I thought it would be excellent to create a show where one would be able to experience the scene that inspired the work.
Last month I moved up to the Good Heart Farmstead in Worcester, Vermont.
I live in a beautiful yurt and will be getting a weekly CSA share in exchange for working on the farm a couple days a week.
The farmers Edge, Kate, and their three year old son Waylon (who is an incredible painter) have cultivated a nurturing, sustainable, and loving organic farm and garden in the foothills of the Worcester Mountain range. I am so grateful to be working the land with them and be apart of preserving and honoring the environment, while helping them in their mission to provide local, fresh, and organic food to surrounding communities.
The farmers want the their farmstead to be a relaxing and inspiring space for people to come to, and have given me permission to use the vacant yurt at the edge of the woods as a studio space, and treat my work trade as a creative retreat as well. In addition to working the land and eating what we grow, I’m focusing on expressing my experiences here with a particular interest in the intersection between land and sky, and the changing light over the worcester Mountains.
