So much wonderful stuff happens on our retreats - visiting, hiking, eating(!), communing of all sorts in general, but the primary purpose is to be making art! At the end of our stay, we try to hold a brief critique/show and tell to look over what we've worked on during the week-
Rebecca plowed through a pile of wonderful things! Bright creatures all (warm-up paintings here) -
She made it through nearly an entire deck of these fabulous-critters-as-tarot-characters.
Aren't they fabulous? We're all hoping she gets them printed so we can buy our own.
Gudrun dabbled in various mediums - pencil, colored pencil, watercolor pencils, clay and felted critters. Lovely, delicate things...
Kathleen, who does such wonderfully expressive drawings, is experimenting with translating them into painting.
(and it is so *fabulous* to have so much ready input here together at our fingertips. Immediate feedback!)
The fabulous Michelle - lots of mini-landscapes and Sculpy sculptures....
Suzy continues to work on her underwater-themed silk paintings...
(as well as sketching some chicken-based designs for future paintings. So adorable.)
Jo is slaving away on her current book (look at how amazing those teensy color comps are!)
