Retreat - Part VIII (POBL members)

Another project I dabbled in whilst at the retreat was to watch the Wendy Froud DVD with Michelle. We both spent an evening with my mini-DVD player and a batch of Sculpy....
(Michelle was sculpting a benign witch - I was attempting a troll...  Fun, but need more practice for sure!)

The thing that *makes* the retreat of course, is the lovely lovely co-attendees. They are all creative, committed, accomplished women. We work very hard -
-by the fire, in the evening...

..or out soaking up the sun during the day (it was gorgeous out this year..)

We work in so many different mediums up there... Suzy is painting gorgeous underwater themed silk scarves.

Kathleen is experimenting with oils, Jo's painting in watercolor, Michelle is playing with sculpy, Gudrun is drawing in pencil, Suzy is doing color comps, and Gudrun also sculpts (felting here, also in clay..), etc....

(and then of course, there is the always amazing food we have on our retreats. These women cook like artists as well. :-)

And of course, besides the working and the cooking and the visiting there is the walking in the woods and the relaxing in the sunshine... So rejuvenating on so many levels...

What a lovely way to spend time together. I'm so used to working alone I'd find it difficult to get on with my own things and chat too much! It's great that you're all good cooks too, such a treat. :)
