Inspiration Coming up!

I'm off to Artiscape in Columbus, Ohio, this weekend and am so excited.  Last year, this art retreat was the beginning of a whole new world for me.  I was introduced to painting with acrylics, making my own rubber stamps, embossing metal, and other mixed media arts.  I can only hope that this year will be just as invigorating and life-changing. I'm looking forward to classes with Jacqueline Sullivan ("Layers Upon Layers" Collage) Barbara Close (Floral Journals), Kimberly Byerly (Botanicals), Magdalena Muldoon (Metal Embossing), and Paula Hardesy (Artistic Soldering) - some new techniques and some advanced techniques of what I learned last ear.  Can't wait!  This year's theme is "The Enchanted April".  I've been working on  a collage/painting that reflects the story line of the book/movie to enter into the silent auction for the benefit of the Susan Komen Foundation. Hope it brings in lots of money!!  :)  Will report on Monday.


  1. Oh my, I can't wait to hear the report after. This art retreat sounds absolutely wonderful. I would like to break out and try new techniques.

    Have a terrific time!

  2. Sounds like a great time! I'm envious.

    Have fun!
