So as I prepare to leave tomorrow for New York to see the new exhibition opening by Jennie C. Jones at Sikkema Jenkins & Co on Thursday, I thought I would add a link to an interview I did with Jennie about 5 years ago. I had just met Jennie and I was a huge fan of her...

Last night I played pool with Mark while I waited for my laundry to wash. It was so obvious that I don’t do laundry at home when I blew up a pen in the dryer. Of course I am panicking, the trip has been amazing and on one of my last nights, I destroy a dryer. I remem...

I spent last weekend in Boston hanging out with an old friend. He’s really not an old friend, but someone I have known for about 6 years. He feels like an old friend though. He is largely responsible for my interest in modernism and decorative arts. One of those peopl...

MacDowell:  day 16 of 23

It is getting hard to say good-bye to these new friends. Yesterday Stephen Dunn left. He has a ritual of going to the Peterborough Diner for breakfast on his last day of MacDowell. Sadly, the diner had a grease fire on Monday and is closed until they ge...

So I thought it would be fun to make a few lists of things that are important to this trip. One of the first things you notice in the studios are the “tombstones”.  I’m not sure how the tradition started, but each fellow that stays in a studio is suppos...

Today makes the end of my first week here at MacDowell. Honestly, if you have never done a residency, it can change your life. I was listening to Stephen, or maybe it was Larry the other day, sitting on the porch talking. Basically, about how for the longest time he c...

I left Atlanta on Monday Sept. 5th on a drive to the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Pulling out of my driveway with my beautiful wife and 6 1/2 month old son waving good-bye has to be the hardest part of such a trip. As they say, what doesn’t kill you...

I've been thinking about posting these photos for awhile. You are looking at two photos from a new series of photos that i took last spring in Atlanta, just off of Marietta Blvd. I was driving by the site and the sun was hitting this massive pile of blocks beautifully....
