ARCTIC CIRCLE Artist Residency and Expedition, summer solstice June 2016

It's getting hot down here in Texas as summer rolls in. But this is some "cool" news:

I am excited to announce I have been chosen by The Arctic Circle as an Artist-in-Residence aboard The Arctic Circle's rigged sailing ship, for the sumer solstice expedition in June 2016.

The expedition takes place within 10 degrees of the north pole and will leave from Longyearbyen, Svalbard (look it up, I didn't know where it was either). I plan on shooting lots of Drone video, doing paintings on-site and installing paintings into the incredible Arctic landscape.

I've been wanting to participate in this residency since its inception in 2009 and finally applied this year. More details will be forthcoming, including a fundraising effort.
