I’m tired of posting my own work. It get’s lonely up here sometimes. That’s why I’m glad other artists come up here, doing place-focused work of their own. A case in point is Meredith Milstead. She came up on several mornings at dawn to do these pastel paintings.
Please check out Meredith’s blog site for more detail on these pastels. She has stages of the work posted and other notes about the process. She does these paintings on site–I’ve watched her stand for two or three hours in one place to create one of these paintings. They are records of a few moments spent in a particular spot, never the same twice, just Meredith, being there.
Inspired by her courage in working in “plein air” during the summer season in the desert, I contacted Meredith for an email interview.
Tumamoc Sketchbook: So Meredith, where are you and what are you up to the rest of the summer?
Meredith Milstead: Montana!
That’s it! Until next time.
