Spectacular Sunday....

Talk about a perfectly delicious day, I got to hang with my art friends, get messy and paint for a whole afternoon. Yesterday, I went to Jesse Reno's workshop at Carol Parks North Hollywood studio.  People had flown in from all over for the 3-day workshop. I was lucky that Tamara gave me her spot. Then, surprise, surprise! She showed up after driving 6 hours- talk about kismet ! I was so happy I got to hang with her and Mija, Kelly and Tally. I met some other very cool artists as well. Check out Pilar's blog  that I added to my list- she is an amazing artist.  The first photo is  one of my attempts at playing with colors and shapes and seeing what evolves.  I did several background canvases and I will let them develop and share the results.  Jesse and his girlfriend were  very accepting and encouraging. I love listening to full time artists talk about their thinking process as they create.  I feel as if new doors were opened in my own artistic journey.  Thank you Jesse, Carol, and my beautiful friend Tam!
