Wow, another really wonderful art retreat in Paonia, CO. Thank you Susie and the Glennie Coombe Gallery (and Ollie's Ice Cream). What a great art space, what a lovely town and fantastic part of Colorado! Thursday afternoon we were introduced to the 3 art projects (boiled books, assemblage and personal journals) along with the concepts of positive and negative spaces. Then off to Azura winery for a picnic and lovely time. Friday we worked all morning then went to Delicious Orchards for lunch then to the private Eames Cellars for a fascinating tour and taste (loved that pear wine!!). A quick stop at the Black Bridge Orchards including a few minutes to work on our journals by the river; ahhhh, a much needed rest and time to take in the magic of this area. Saturday we started the day at the north rim of the Black Canyon; all of us in awe. A wonderful picnic there, then back to the workshop space for a full afternoon of art! By 8pm we were all delightfully full; of ice cream, art time and wonderful camaraderie. Thanks all of you wonderful women; it was a truly inspirational weekend together!
