About your host

Since childhood I've lost track of time when staring at light on objects in space. Drawing light, as it is separate from color, enlightens me. Some might name it meditation. I think of it as refreshing balance for my time spent pecking at keyboards. During decades when I made pots from globs of clay, I designed surfaces by predicting how shapes of light and shadow would result from space…

What we’ll do

We'll be at a rustic studio close to the sea, listening, sniffing, looking around. We'll look through lenses that alter our seeing. We'll handle pencils and papers while exploring cycles of activity and rest. We'll talk and spend time in silence. We'll investigate/play with contents of a cabinet that's full of mark-making materials. We'll notice how much variety comes from basic tools. …

What else you should know

No exact address because studio was a boat-house on an estate. We use an outdoor hose for washing and a chemical toilet or Porta-Potty. Roaming surrounding property is not permitted.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
Water and juice.
Equipment
Use of basic drawing materials: pencils, charcoal, erasers and various paper samples. Bring your own if you have some.

What to bring

Shoes, sunscreen, materials you like (tones from white to black).
If you have music that 'speaks to you' you'd like to share, bring it.
Sense of adventure.

Where you'll be

Close enough to ocean to hear waves lapping, we'll begin inside the rustic studio that I've rented for more than forty years, named The Soft Earth. You'll get to see a range of basic materials from which most art supplies are made. We'll spend time outside if weather is friendly -- we'll decide that together.
