This sabbatical provided me with the time and focus to advance my art studio practice in the buon fresco painting technique. Through a variety of experimental and process-oriented studio activities, [ investigated ways in which the technique can be utilized in the contemporary painting discourse. Traditionally, this foml of painting was employed on a freshly plastered wall or ceiling in a process that is rigid and fixed. My experiments yielded results that advance the potential modes of creation and presentation of the buon fresco painting technique. [ am pleased with the quantity of the works completed and their initial reception in the fie ld and encouraged that much of what was accomplished is groundwork for future works.
