Oh my..what a wonderful 4 days in Taos with 6 other adventurous women! We had an amazing time enjoying the beauty of the area and responding to the crystal clear air, the natural beauty and the ancient Pueblo life. I really wanted the weekend to balance art work with exploration of this place. There is so much to see; every little path, alley, cloud, shadows; all beg to be remembered (photographed, sketched, written about). The time flew by and was so satisfying to hear that everyone wished for a few more days in the atmosphere of creative expression and gentle challenges. I just love it there, and I love working with a group of fun, focused folks who are generous with their energy, humor and Taos spirit. Thanks to Ann, Kate, Jill, Devera, Mary and Susie...and Mabel, Millicent and Graham (as in Graham's Grille)! On to New York next month! What a contrast in location...
Wohoo! I have been loving the new workshop space that Kozo has generously opened to various intructors. My "intro to mixed media journal" classes were both filled and we all seemed to enjoy the light-filled space. Thank you Patricia for creating such a great spot for the art community!
"Travel Journals" wlll be the next class scheduled for this week; I have posted the images from the Travel Journal kit; all pages were completed with just the materials included in the kit. Thanks to the brilliant and generous Carol Waugh (see the favorites link page) I will be tweeking the packaging and creating a consistent product. I will also be posting another video tutorial in the next day or two. It is her gorgeous work seen in the tutorials (hanging on the wall).
