"I love my life."

That's what Dede said on Day 3 of Art & Soul Portland.

I love my life too. I especially loved it during this Portland workshop. It was wonderful to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Every class equipped me with new skills. I enjoyed each and every project. I have so much to share, but I'll start with this image from my Painted Nature Fabric class with Tracie Lyn and Maryilyn Huskamp.I don't paint, but I was pleased with my results in this class. And everyone had great results. I overheard someone who wandered in during lunch ask how every single person had produced something so "good."

And, Tracie and Marilyn are delightful.

More soon.

  4. I DO love my life, and I'm so glad that every once in a while I get to share a bit of it with you and the others at A&S.

    Thanks for laughter, and fund times, teaching me "the usu", and more.

  13. Leslie: Your bird is so sensitively painted I feel like it can jump off the monitor! Hard to believe it is a first attempt.
