A Gift of Time and Place: Farrera

May 28th, 2008

Remember, the great adversity of art or anything else is a hurried life.

James Waller

I am ever-so-lucky to have the good fortune of being in a serene studio.
Traveling to this distant land has opened up so much for me… The connection and contrast between  continents and culture is once again more clarified. For studio time it actually doesn't matter that it is in a distant land, but for me as an artist and human being this isolated mountain aerie studio is perfect. 
And my long soggy slogs through the rainy streets of Barcelona were an unanticipated source of energy and inspiration.
Adventure awakens the sleeping consciousness…
New horizons stimulate the mind dulled by the expected.

Removal from the on-going onslaught of committments and obligations is essential. My life is anything but boring, but to not have chaos intrude upon the creative process is essential.
I am ever-so grateful to the Vermont Arts Council and Castleton College for their support in this quest for quiet and a time and a space to work.
