Barbara Grist, Month Long Residency, January, 2014

The experience of being at Willowtail Springs is not easy to put into words, it is something you need to feel.  My month long artist residency at Willowtail is just what I needed to feed my artistic soul.  Time to be awakened each morning by the light coming into my bedroom window and then have the time to watch it’s rays fall on objects in it’s path until dark.  My senses had time to open up and soak in all the variety of things that create an experience.  Willowtail Springs is a perfect place to let the muse back into an artist’s life in a peaceful, beautiful and comfortable setting.
