My time at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony is coming to an end.
It is also my last of the three residencies I’ve received this winter. It has been an amazing journey. Weir Farm National Historic Site brought my work to a new level and I experienced many a break through there. Brush Creek in Wyoming was so good for my soul with its humbling majestic beauty. My work strengthened there as well.
Dorland is a truly magical place. ( I will be coming back for two additional weeks sometime this year! ). To wake each morning and look at the vista out my back porch is just an inspiring moment. Here my work in a very short time took a new turn as well. I am lucky enough to return to California and Arizona at the end of next week and I look forward to taking what I learned from the landscape around Dorland into my new work.
I'm not sure how to describe it but there's just an atmosphere here that pushes you to create...and you just can't ask for anything more. Thank you to the wonderful people who make this such an amazing place.
Here are the rest of my paintings completed at Dorland. If you're interested in seeing works completed at Weir Farm please visit my website EvelynMcCPetersArt.com. I will post my work from Brush Creek next week. It is currently hanging at The Studio at Gulf and Pine in Anna Maria Florida.
Thanks for stopping by!
