Painting

I have a wonderful little local group of arty friends. Truly wonderful. Three of us are moving in the next few months. Grumble. It's so hard to part ways. To ease the pain a bit, we decided to take a private workshop with local artist Margie Woods Brown.

It was a wonderful celebration of our friendship, creativity, time and art.

Margie's studio space is beautiful...

Little shrines here and there.
Smiling faces!
Getting messy.
Inspiring direction from Margie.
Choices!
I love this sink and art vignette.
Here are the pieces I created.
As we were creating, I was really aware of the colors, patterns, layers and motifs I was using. I can totally imagine using some of them in my fiber art.

I was also absorbing the pleasure of time with my friends. A blessing.

Lovely! You will soon have another group of friends - I think I know you well enough to say that. Your groups of friends will grow as you move on in your life.

Arty friends are the best! I'm glad you're one of mine! And just think -- as you move you are making more arty friend all over the country. I'm glad you got to celebrate your friendship and creativity with such a fun day.
