Janelle Lynch: BPAC Artist-in-Residence May 5, 2013

Monday, May 6, 2013

Throughout her year as Burchfield artist-in-residence, Janelle Lynch will share her thoughts and impressions with us as we share her journey into the spirit and work of Charles Burchfield.


Forsythia greeted me upon my arrival in the Catskills yesterday, where I spend weekends in a renovated hay barn circa 1865.

Preparing for my second trip of my residency on Tuesday, reading Thoreau's journals and makings photo "sketches" in the woods.

I documented fourteen varieties of narcissus!
