The art of PLAY retreats

Late last month I traveled over to Seattle and Port Townsend for a 4 day art retreat called "PLAY". I wasn't teaching, I wasn't taking classes/workshops, it was 4 days and 4 nights of uninterrupted studio time. I completed more in those 4 days than I normally do in a month of studio time at home. Here are the pieces I worked on....





"Entangled"

Painted for the 2012 Valentines For Aides art auction





My first attempt at translating work from my Book of Dreams onto a large canvas. 
"Clarification" 
36"x18"x1.5"
Mixed Media



"What We Leave Behind" ~ from the Book of Dreams journal



First spread in my new visual journal, the view from my seat at Play!! Note all the art supplies piled on the table ;) 

What an amazing experience! And so many beautiful like minded souls, I miss them all.

Thank you sweet Cynthia. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to spend all those days with so many incredible artists and my flock/tribe. Even more so that I left with new friends and soul sisters. :) xoxo

Emily,
It was wonderful meeting you!! It does my heart good to know that there are visual journalers right here in Boise! I'll keep you posted on any new workshops coming up! Hopefully sooner rather than later. ;)
