Artist in Residence-Pt 1 - Day 2 - Mill Pond Gallery, Richmond Hill

My first real working day in residency was spent sorting myself out. And in between that I had a few visitors.

My first visitor was a father with his daughter who were looking for a bathroom for her. So my good deed for the day was accomplished. Later my collaborative ceramic friend Minda came by with her husband and they looked at my work and at the same time another artist dropped in.

The Gallery was quiet but I expected it.

I couldn't decide what to do, or even what to choose to do, so I did a simple task of reclaiming some canvases.
Even this simple gessoing is a pain in my small work spaces. But here I worked outside, using the garden hose to first wash the canvases off (5 years in storage) and then right after painting it rained.

No harm done. I hope to get something onto them today or tomorrow. I want to start.

waiting for tomorrow
