Here are some Pics from my workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. My students did a fantastic job with their handmade books! Congrats and many thanks to all who spent the day painting, stamping, stenciling, mark making, and of course drinking Margaritas! ....ok...some of you!

We've just returned from San Miguel de Allende after teaching a week long Mixed Media retreat, with my Amigas. What a week it was with laughter and good times had by all! My students created incredible accordion books with amazing images and colors. The city was singing with lights and festivities for Holy Week. It's hard to get back to reality........we'll return in 2012!

Imagine my elation when I stepped into a gallery filled with huge Joseph Raffael watercolors! Today my art buddies and I drove up to see the exhibit at Soka University in Aliso Viejo, CA. The exhibit closes soon....April 15th to be exact. This is the artist who first inspired me to paint in watercolor back in the early 80's....I saw wild bits of color yet thoughtfully marked....wet into wet approaches with blooms! What a breakaway from the mediocre works I had seen before by other watercolor artists.
