I went to my first art retreat.
This was an unbelievable journey.
It far surpassed any of my expectations.
The growth I felt as an artist was so intoxicating.
I was surrounded by other dreamers.
I was in an art bubble for three days...oh my!!
I met some great people.
I took two awesome classes.
The teacher, whose art I drool over was AMAZING!!!
If you haven't seen her creations check out Julie Haymaker's art.
She is phenomenal teacher and the days went by so quickly.
The only disappointment I had was I didn't snap some pictures of us.
So if you have a chance to go to Art N Soul do so....you will have a blast.
I went alone and I left meeting some new friends~
Here are my goodies I made.....
So beyond thrilled.....I have been sketching since I have left.
New ideas and thoughts.
I have come back recharged!!
I so needed this especially in this long dreary winter.
I didn't do much site seeing.....some fantastic dinners.
I did do a bit of shopping.
My favorite store had a wonderful recycled art in the windows.
So in wishing for Spring to come quickly I snapped this picture.
Its in Anthro, they cut bottles and painted them and they look like blooming flowers!
As my story book week ended I had to share my picture with Humpty.
He was my fill in man for the week since my awesome husband took care of the kids at home!
I am off to clean my studio with this new found energy.....new creations are a brewing!!
P.S. Thanks for all the inquiries about my Alice Teapot. She SOLD and I won the contest!
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and interest.
