Art and Soul

 
Just recently finished this small piece for the gallery.  Pieces that I do with a more natural theme seem to sell much quicker for some reason.  After taking Misty Mawn's online class I feel I've learned a lot so I believe art with my women will have a fresher look to them when I next do one.
Also, I'm very excited about going to Art and Soul retreat in Las Vegas to take Julie Haymaker Thompson's workshop.  I leave on Tuesday morning for a 5 hour drive east taking it nice an easy with a book on cd, snacks for the ride and time to clear my mind.  It's been awhile since I took off by myself and I'm needing it badly.  I'm busy with calligraphy work so I'm hoping I won't have to take any with me to do in the evening while I'm there.  I just want to take a hot bath, watch some tv, sketch a little and get into a bed by myself.  I'm going to have to work my little fingers off tomorrow if I'm going to make that happen but it will be worth it.  

I haven't been to Las Vegas since 1989 and I know it's a different city today.  I'm excited to see the hotels and the attractions that have been created for the visitors.  I'll have much to report when I return.

Have a wonderful trip Renee, and a fabulous class! I love this piece, sooooo beautiful. Love anything with a bird on it! Really like the textures, and mixed media feel to it. Take care, Riki
