I recently had the opportunity to be an artist-in-residence this past May at Chateau Orquevaux, France. It is about 2.5 hours east of Paris by train. It was a remarkable time for me personally, just coming off of our first year back in person. The setting is beyond what you could honestly imagine and the residents became my family instantly. I think I got super lucky on that one. 

 

I had an artistic breakthrough there. Short story I am going to concentrate on my Buzzy Monsters now. There is something to these guys that wants exploring. I did not set out to make the monsters, it is just what happens, they make sense to me and they are a part of me. 

 

I can see the way now, only part of it though. Maybe it will always be a bit obscured and for me thats part of the fun in it.
