August 2013

It’s been an incredibly busy August for both Joe and me. Lots of workshops and painting, which is WONDERFUL! We have Back to School at the store and Art of the Carolinas planning for me. It seems that we are back to back on a roll and LOVING it!

We‘ve been to Dobson, NC with our friend and fellow instructor, Sterling Edwards. We had a great week long extravaganza with some wonderful folks, painting lots and lots of acrylic abstracts.
We returned from that trip and hosted a Play Date at DiGiulio Studios for the Carolinas Mixed Media Art Guild Gals. Way too much fun! Lots of sharing and creating!
CMMAG silliness at DiGiulio Studios:
Then I was off to Sanford, NC to teach a two day Collage Therapy workshop. Again, way too much fun moving and shaking and ripping and tearing and attaching into place...
Working in the beautiful Art Center space:
One of my demos:
Next, time to pack for Traverse City for a three day workshop. That’s where we are now. What a perfect time to be in northern Michigan!
One of Joe's morning demos:
It’s been wonderful here exploring and meeting new folks from around the state!

In Glen Arbor, MI for an afternoon lunch:
 Next we’re off to Petosky to see my childhood friend, Mary. I have not seen her in over 20 years and recently reconnected on Facebook.
