Art and Soul
Penny, Susan B B. and I went to Asilomar this week for a 3 day art retreat. It was great. Easy drive, outstanding teachers, relaxing atmosphere and fun travel-mates. I had great tablemates: Liz, Dana and the oh so fabulous Penny. It was great to catch up with some old friends: Bee, Catherine, and Michael...and meet some new friends. I had Richard Salley for found object bezels,
Judy Wise for encaustic
and Stephanie Lee for a painting on cracked plaster technique.
I loved it all. We stopped in Pacific Grove before we checked in and went to our fave fabric store, Back Porch and then checked out a beautiful shop
called Diamonds and Rust.
On the way home, after breakfast in Carmel at Katey's Kitchen, we tracked down a lovely shop in Carmel Valley called Tancredi and Morgan. I would like to visit this area again. We saw lots of cool stuff.
AND today...I got a package from the fabulous Tara! We are working on a co-lab that is sooooo fun. I will add some pics soon...but Tara did the most exciting doll, portfolio and painting for me......now the burden is on me...yikes!
