I have been invited to be an artist in recidency in Buinho Creative Hub in Messejana, Portugal. I am so happy about this! I will be going in June, hopefully before the warmest period in Portugal. The country in itself seems very interesting, and this creative community very much so too. Or as they say themselves:

"Buinho is a place where artists, makers, researchers, and other creatives can work on their projects in the unique rural environment.

It is the perfect place for studying theory and for getting hands dirty with practice".

Sounds perfect. I will get a field easel and dig out my watercolours, and go hunt for exciting compositions in the cultural landscape. There is something about exterior and interior compositions that really get to me through art. Some artists I think have done some excellent work with this is Ida Lorentzen and Bea Sarrias. Check them out!

I did some outdoors work in Greece a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed it. However, I think I would like the results of this recidency to be more simplified and with a stronger focus on the architectural composition. Looking so much forward to going!
