* The sun is shining ...

the birds are singing, the sky is blue ... all is well in my world.  We wander this old hill town endlessly as Caroline absorbs the colours, textures, layers of history and it's people.  She is fascinated.  She is overwhelmed. She is an artist.  It will be interesting to see how this affects her paintings when she returns to her studio on Hornby Island, located in our incredible Gulf Islands off the coast of Vancouver Island.  Caroline is a well known Canadian artist and her work can be viewed HERE.

It is my extreme pleasure to give Caroline full credit for finding my intuition which has lead to the painting of my iconic women.  I spent two blissful weeks with her at two different workshops, "Painting into Spirit", and certainly tapped into my own intuition.  Nina is my second teacher and as a result of having had both of them in my life, I have found the artist within and my own voice.  I am blessed.

At any rate, here are a few photographs from yesterday.





Can't keep my eyes of those old beams.


As you know, I haven't been blogging much lately ... too busy gawking and having fun with my friends.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  It means a lot to me.  xoxo  Donna
