Back From Journalfest

As always, an amazing event. This year was particularly special in so many ways for me. I took 2 days of classes from Orly Avineri. My favorite was the "Face Lift" class. Here are some of my completed pages....

I was given the gift of new techniques, but more importantly, new ideas and concepts to think about and explore. This for me is the essence of going to a retreat. My "well" is re-filled and I am ready to work.

Ghostly Words

Recently I was asked to use some of my drawings to illustrate a poem. "Ella's Edge" is a wonderful blog with poetry and poetry prompts along with photography and other mixed media delights. Here is the link: . It is inspiring and amazing to see how poetry -  or a story can change your feeling about a piece of art. Coupled with the word, the images become more than they were as just drawings. Thanks Ella!
On a side note....I am feverishly working in my studio to get ready for a show here in Southern Oregon at Seven Feathers Casino on Saturday 10/15. I will be going to Journalfest at the end of the month - I am so excited to see Port Townsend in Fall again and re-connect with fellow journalers. I hope to see some of you at these upcoming events.
