"Do you ever leave a workshop breathless and wonder if you gave sufficient thanks to the instructor? You are magic! Thanks for being my lightening rod and the essence of positive spiritual potential that will take my art journey to a new place. On your worst days, remember this, you have a remarkable gift to inspire and to teach by example. God is smiling on your creation. " ~ KW after Crested Butte workshop
