Hard to believe a summer flew by so fast.... Three more days with PCPA, and then it's back to CalArts for year 2.  I feel like I really accomplished a lot this summer, and got the chance to work with some great people on some really interesting projects!

I painted sets for The Rivals (dsr. Heidi Hoffer), Legally Blonde (dsr. DeAnne Kennedy), PCPA's retro-fitting additions to the set for the touring production Daddy Long Legs (dsr. David Farley), and The Three Sisters (dsr. Andrew Hammer).  I also worked on building and painting some of the props for The Rivals.  I was the sole painter for the three drops for PCPA's Outreach production of The Reluctant Dragon (touring to local schools this fall), and learned how to do beer glazing, and how denatured alcohol can be used to create visual texture.

All in all, a very rewarding summerstock experience.  Working with Abby Hogan and the rest of the staff and interns was an absolute treat.  Expect lots of pictures to pop up in my portfolio and on my Flickr account in the near future (once I get myself settled back home and all the pictures sorted out).
