Two weeks ago I had a fantastic trip!
I visited my sister, Katie, in San Bruno, California, and my cousin Dana, in San Rafael.
I also went to Art is You in Petaluma!
I was so fortunate to get a spot in Tracy Verdugo's Sacred Marks Class.
I had been following Tracy's beautiful work for several years.
Her classes fill up quickly, and I wanted to learn her intuitive painting style.
I wasn't disappointed:)
Tracy is as sweet and helpful in person as I imagined.
The class was wonderful with a great group of ladies.
The retreat was so welcoming,well organized, and fun. I made some lovely new arty friends and
I can't wait to return next year.
Here is my painting in various stages, we learned not to be tied to the outcome:).
My friend, Susan with the blog: Passion for Paper, is inspirational with all her creative ventures.
She gave me the cutest little book with a cover made of folded paper.
It is so pretty, I'm afraid to write in it. I'll have to think of something special.
We talked about how little I've created or blogged since I started the renovation.
The last little bits (I know I've said this before:) are just about finished.
So no more excuses, I need to create, and blog about it.
I'm working on two tables with chalk paint, and I'll blog about them soon.
I've decided that no matter how busy I am, there is no excuse not to do a short journal page.
I saw this article by Jenny Frith: How-to-start-sketchbook-journal, and I think this format would work well for me. Just a little box to fill each day:)
Now I'm looking for the perfect journal so I can get started.
