Sorry it has been two crazy weeks since Art Is You...and I definitely wanted to share a quick photo re-cap because it was such an amazing time and weekend. Here we go...
Co-organizer and amazing artist, Ellen Legare, made each participant a sewn name tag ~ this one is mine. She made me blonde and beautiful! :)
Do you remember the artist trades I made? Well, I got a few in return and I took a picture along with some great business cards from all the talented and wonderful people I met!
Had a night where we created flags...and drank wine. There was some incredibly creative interpretations and artistic talent abound! I had to keep my flag conservative. Just those traditional military roots showing through. Growing up in a military family with a father who served and then marrying my husband who also served more than 20 years, I couldn't "undo" the traditional red, white and blue. I added patriotic words when I got home and am happy with the result!
Learn a cool technique with paint and boards in Bernie Berlin's class....
which led me to create...this.
Laughed quite a bit on the first day at this table with these women in our Crazy Girl class...I had no idea the participants had to be crazy to be in the class! :)
Sunny Carvalho led us to make some funky little characters. Here is a picture of the whole class...don't you just love all the different interpretations? Two faces are mine. Can you guess which ones?
And LOVED my time with the hilarious Sue Pelletier in our "house" class. Again, I finished my project at home with some words. I guess it is the journalist in me? Must. Have. Words.
These ladies were oh-so-talented and kind!
(That's my friend Tracy on the far right..I think this the only picture I have of the two of us together! The rest are on her phone I think.)
Sat next to sweet and lovely Jessica Sporn one day at lunch ~ sweet lady and very talented artist and stencil designer. I have bought her stencils! :)
Let's not forget the Art Crawl in downtown Nashville....the good, the bad and the ugly. This little gem can be yours for only $300....if you hurry!!
Got lots of inspiration which I am looking forward to sharing with you all in the next week. Now that Vince leaves for Russia tomorrow, I will have days of studio time!
Keep y'all posted! :)
