While in residence at Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Art and Agriculture, I started each day drawing. My visual experience of the ranch consisted of two generalized ideas, the strong linearity of the buildings, fences, and other elements of the built environment, and the subtle gradations of the ever-changing sky, distant forests, and the vast stretch of pasture. I explored the combination of these two ideas with a limited palette of materials in ways that would allow me to respond to successive drawings and days with compositional adjustments and alterations of how I saw and thought about the landscape at the ranch.
