“I have visited Willowtail in summer-what glorious gardens and so many trees! Paths are lined with found objects ,bowling balls and upended machinery. But to be there in WINTER!!!! Willowtail deep in snow, the lake frozen, except for the aerated circles for ducks to find space to swim. The bare bones of trees. Abundant birds.
“The studio warm and light filled… a perfect place to spend days experimenting and thinking. Just yards away from a cozy bungalow stocked with fruit, coffee, eggs, a loaf of homemade bread and jam. Facing the lake. Ahhh. Such isolation and solitude is difficult to arrange in one’s “real life.” I was profoundly grateful to take my work to a place of contemplation and open-ended days. And, there were walks with Beau, the resident protector, to round it all out.”
