"On the Island"
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
Look how cute my little home away from home was at the Whidbey Island workshop!
It was STUFFED with art books of every shape, size and description...had an amazing coffee maker (see the red Nespresso) ...
Soft cotton sheets and cookies in the cookie jar..er at least there were cookies in that cookie jar
Just next door was Cary Jurriaan's studio (my host for this workshop and amazing artist herself!)
LOVE her collection of palettes!
All kinds of artists from Robert Johnson to Carol Marine have left a colorful palette and signed it for Cary to hang in her studio.
I was tickled to be added to the wall:)))
Just a few of the palettes!
From creamy, dreamy, hand spun yarn
to a ton of fun little tiles that reminded me of a certain black and white someone
Whidbey Island was a visual feast!
(okay, I didn't just consume the cookies with my eyes...I snorkeled them down. Good thing they only weigh luggage at the airport...just sayin')
And that all happened before the workshop began...
As the paintings started accumulating (and 5 days painting produced an amazing stack of work!)
Well, it just kept getting more and more amazing.
I nearly had to put my eyes on a diet from "over-eating"..;)
Is there a visual over-eaters anonymous 12 step program??
More to come on the Whidbey Island workshop and announcement of my monthly giveaway winners!!
