Carmel is one fun place.
Did you know it was voted the #1 place in America to live in 2012 by CNN’s Money Magazine??? Me neither!
I’m not talking about Carmel, CA—the place most artists know so well and that sits by the sea.
We’re talkin’ Carmel, Indiana….specifically the Arts District, home to my two last workshops:))!
First off all, it has amazing food! ( Think tortellini soup, brie log covered in strawberries, and macaroni and cheese with shrimp:)))(I know…I had to wipe the drool off my chin too;)
Secondly…it has fun places to shop. Both Eds gave a “thumbs up” to my new studio chair:)) (purchased at Restyled, a little shop right next door to where I was teaching).
My hostess for the two Carmel workshops was Kathleen O’Neil Stevens.
From stealin’ groceries….
to stealin’ kisses….
She was NOT a very good influence;))
However…she IS an excellent workshop coordinator! She kept us in coffee, teas and goodies…took lots of pics….and tipped us off on all the good places to eat:))
Which obviously paid off….just look at all the juicy colors in these paintings:)) It was a very talented group of artists!
This was the workshop for friends and family!
There were sisters, mother and daughters, husband and wife, and a 5 pack of friends from Michigan (and a whole lot more)!
Lots of Art = Lots of Smiles:))!
The Gang’s All Here!
Kathleen (our host), Karen, Chelsea, Bonnie and Bob, Vicki, Linda, Korrine, Susan, Linda, Sue, Nancy, Janet, Debbie, Marc, Heather, Trudy, Jamilyn, Marianne, and Barb.
Workshop I in Carmel, Indiana was a delight in every way!!
