What an amazing group of women! I was honored to spend 2 days with this fabulous group; we laughed, we created, we explored, we supported each other in our creative efforts. Carol Ann and I have been offering these Mixed Media Adventure workshops for a few years and something really clicked with this venue, these ladies and the textured surfaces we played with. Heart felt thanks to Carol and Sabina, what a team!
My Sketching Spain trip is now just a few weeks away and I am beginning to really consider my shoe selection and my art supplies (not like I ever stop thinking about these things...it is just now I am facing the choices that traveling light offer). I subscribe to a newsletter from a wonderful journal-maker whom I met at the Crested Butte art fair last summer. I bought one of her small watercolor journals (with gorgeous leather cover) and have been really loving both the paper and the size/feel of the book. She recently shared her tips for painting on a plane as she began her travel journal on a trip to Iceland. I laughed out loud and am sharing it here. Who can't relate (and add their own take)? Her website is Minds Eye Journals, check it out!
