I returned last Monday but have been so tired that I have done very little. Mostly got the gardens back in order and washed clothes! Seems when I am gone nothing gets done...but of course it does...it is just my things that build up! ha!
I went to Oklahoma to visit my sister and be with her for her 75th birthday! That was terrific and I enjoyed it alot but could do without that heat! Then from there I went to Wichita for a private workshop with Hugh Greer. Hugh and his sweet wife Terry have been online friends for maybe 10 years! So when he offered me to come I jumped and ran...straight to Kansas! Ha! It was a wonderful 3 days and I learned so much. He works in acrylics and is a retired architect so his landscapes are something he has done since the 60's. He does amazing work and to see it in person was overwhelming at times! I even cried! Just beautiful. I am hoping to start working in acrylics and doing landscapes more this winter. I am posting the last days work but remember it is only 1/2 done. I am not sure it will ever be completed but it will help me when I start again later this year. You can view his lovely work here at his website: http://www.hughgreer.com/ and I know you will love it as much as I do! Unfortunately you cannot see all the wonderful details online and let me assure you in person it is overwhelming!
Now I have to keep my nose to the grindstone as I teach in Bend, Oregon at Art in the Mountains in mid July so have to finish up the demos and get things shipped ahead to be there when I arrive! Pressure is on. You might not hear from me for awhile but I will be thinking of all of you and will be anxious to get back and report in!!!
