Some End of Year Thoughts on Teaching….
It has been a feast this year. Painting with artists from all around the country— some from as far away as Brazil and Italy–and taking some on the road with me to France! The humor, the smiles, the sharing, the sincerity, the honesty, the intensity, the paint, the spills, the dancing, the aha moments, the food, the toasts, the cupcakes, the music, the weather, the stories…in a nutshell—it has been more fun than is probably legal!
When you hear each artist’s story shared, you come to realize how brave, unselfish, giving, and incredible they truly are.
The fact that I have the rare privilege to do what I do is not lost on me.
Teaching is an humbling experience—I am just here to share what I know for a little while 🙂
So many beautiful people.
It’s such a JOY to see so many honoring their creative gifts
and to be a part of it…well, it just doesn’t get any better than that.
With a full heart I just want to say thanks for sharing the journey with me this year—here’s a quick look back at all the artists I was privileged to meet and paint with in 2013!!
Cary, North Carolina Workshop II
Lynda Chambers, my hostess for this workshop in Cary, NC kept everyone supplied in smiles, amazing food…and cupcakes! (Both Cary, NC workshop artists were treated to cupcake shaped treats for their tub time 😉 !
And here’s some of the beautiful colors that showed up in the work of these artists on the very first day of the workshop!
And a second day’s bounty, obviously a day well spent 😉
And here’s a look at the hands, hearts and smiles that pulled off all the great art you see here:
Yvonne, Hannah, Kathy, Jane, Lynn, Nancy, Betsy, Brenda, Sherry, Jessie, Susan, Gretchen, Wendy, Katie, Jaquelin, Kati, Lynne, Challis and
