A Perfect Summer Week
I'm home from spending a perfect summer week at the Oregon Coast -- a cabin nestled in the woods, warm sunny weather, a husband and then a friend to hang out with, all punctuated by an art class. My week in review.
And then my class began at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, Sand Painting and Mixed Media with Judy Vogland as our instructor.
Judy is such an amazing teacher. She is patient, encouraging, generous with her time, encouraging, willing to push us out of our comfort zone, encouraging, knowledgeable, and did I mention encouraging?
Because it was such a diverse class, I thought it would be fun to show some of the highlights of our final Show and Tell where each of us presented what we had been working on, our challenges, and our successes.

After four days, I managed to move three pieces along, although none are completed (a rarity for me!).
