Residency: Sam & Adele Golden Foundation Residency

New Berlin, NY

June 2013

In June 2013, I was the lucky recipient of a month-long residency at the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation Residency. While in residence, we were offered technical instruction in the use of acrylics, oils, varnishing, faux tools and applications, and image transfer techniques. In addition to the technical support, we were given access to all the products offered by Golden Artist Colors, including Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors.


The goal of SAGF in creating this residency program is to offer an environment for experimentation with paints, mediums, or any product they currently make or could try to make for you. I found their enthusiasm, support and technical knowledge was the perfect creative environment for the artists in residence.


While in residence, I experimented with painting in oil on Arches Oil Paper, and I explored the medium of acrylics for the first time. In this portfolio of images, I’ve included the works on paper, but I have not included my first acrylics. I’ll be keeping those to myself for a while to let them evolve and grow as they need to.
