when i was asked to assist the lovely flora bowley in her bloom true workshop at the do what you love retreat in england...what could i say but YES!
i just couldn't believe we got to paint in this gorgeous landscape!
and i felt so at home painting on these large canvases...
especially when it was warm enough to take them outside and paint in the grass!
i learned so much about painting, teaching and creative business from flora!
she's originally from green bay, wisconsin (not too far from where i grew up) so it was especially sweet to share stories from the midwest.
and i cannot wait to try out some of the translucent paints she uses!
it was really amazing to have this time to play and learn from everyone else in the class too!
and i really did try to keep this painting just like it is when i went to york to paint in my hotel room after the retreat.
but, of course, an owl just started to appear!
i can't wait to share the finished piece with you on monday...along with the entire painting and her story from start to finish!
have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!!
