I'm quiet here, I know - it's been awhile. Taking this year off from teaching, being home, moving at a slowed down pace I'm finding is restorative and I can be much more internal and introverted. I'm painting everyday and today I even celebrated Spring here in the PNW with my camera on my walk in the woods and along the river. I love our place here, witnessing 34 years of seasons, each one brings new and unexpected changes to our land and the river that runs through it. But I digress...I will put up some of the photos I took up later in the week.
What I want to share with you now is the exciting trip I'll be making to Antigua next January - a perfect time to leave the cold and damp winter here and travel to places bright and warm. When I think Guatemala, I think of brilliant bright colors and patterns, amazing hand loomed textiles, colorful fruits and vegetables. It has been a place on my wish list for a verylong time and I'm thrilled to be able to finally get to go and explore the area. I pulled a few photos off the internet to entice you.
Judy Wise and I will be working with Kathie Vezzani of Bellissimo Art Escapes who has organized the trip and we'll both be teaching classes that are going to be a lot of fun. You can go here to get the itinerary and learn about the trip specifics.
Judy also shared a bunch of gorgeous photos in her blog post about it here. Maybe you'll want to join us there too!
