This has been an interesting week. 3 days with no phone, internet and TV, followed by a 2 day weekend of art classes.
We finally got our services back Friday night. The good news was that I got 3 books read:
"Broken Wings" by Carla Stewart
"The Recipe Box" by Sandra Lee
"The Creative Habit" by Twyla Tharp
I enjoyed them all.
The courses this weekend were excellent and taught by Donna Downey (yes! that Donna Downey!).
There is a wonderful art studio- the Art House Studio - in Cambridge that I only recently discovered and it is wonderful.
Saturday's class was a Mixed Media class where we produced a 12 page mixed media book and learned new techniques.. Loved it!
Sunday's class was an acrylic abstract course where we completed 3 small canvases. Again I loved it and learned new techniques,
(This was my favourite canvas of the 3)
Fall Tree of Intentions
For the past two years I have created a tree of fall intentions, to guide me through the fall months, to focus on what intentions I have for the coming season.
My intentions fall under six areas: Creative, Healthy living, Retirement, Spiritual, Social and Intellectual. It becomes a very visual focus for the season ahead.
I also created some ATCs this week:
(I had a few other larger pieces for a trade but did not scan them.)
