Posts Tagged ‘Maureen Booth Granada’

Yesterday in my studio. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, and it turned out lovely for everybody. All of the kids created a painting of their own to hang in their rooms. Mike made his seafood chowder for lunch (“glorified potato soup,” he calls it) and Bill and Puri came down from the sierra with bulging basket of blackberries. The berries and vanilla ice cream for dessert were a religious experience.  Next time we’ll do solarplate prints.

“I’d like to go back home and teach these techniques…”

Jess is a lovely girl and was a pleasure to work with. She seemed to have a sense of purpose beyond her 20 years, learning the techniques of creative printmaking very fast. I was able to let her do her own printing after a few days. She has a lot of natural charm and also very keen to learn about solar plates and the liquid metal technique. Jess left with some very interesting prints which we made together and also a lot she created on her own. She also loved the city of Granada, where she would go lots of afternoons using the local bus service. We will miss you, Jess. Come back when you can.

.From the visitors’ book:

I will always remember my time here with joy. I have learnt so much about art, Spain and myself. It’s an experience I will always treasure. Maureen, you and Miguel have been more than accommodating during my time here. So thank you. You have taught me such a mass of things. Perhaps I will see you in New Zealand!

Love, Jess — Keep in touch!
