From July 12 to July 17 I was the Creative Resident at Bascom Lodge on Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts, crowning the Berkshires. The mountain is dotted with excellent trails, which I got to explore quite a bit thanks to the rain threats holding off.
I spent the first full afternoon mulling my own gouaches, eight bottles in all including some unusual pigments from Kremer, Pyranthrone Orange and Irgazine Ruby. The relative irregularity in the grind of handmade paint causes it to disperse on hot-press watercolor paper in a pleasing way, a bit like ceramic glazes, which I tried to take advantage of.
I'll be giving a public talk at the lodge at 6 PM on July 26. Contact them for more details.

Many thanks to Bascom Lodge for having me out.
