Art camp


I started a week long workshop in Elora today. The workshop is run by the Wellington County Museum http://www.wcm.on.ca/event-details.php?eid=64&type=norm
I have taken workshops there since 2004. By far the best workshop I have taken there is the workshop taught by Gunnel Hag. http://www.colourvie.com/ Gunnel is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend taking a class with her. I learned a great deal and this workshop took my art in a new direction. Gunnel really encourages exploration and that is one of my favorite things to do.
I also made a divine connection the week I took Gunnel's class. I met my dear friend Carol Wiebe.

Carol has a great sense of humour and I was drawn to her immediately. Carol and I have been friends for four years now and it feels like we've always known each other. I thank God for all my friends but especially my art friends. They get me!
This picture is a nature print I did with the Color Vie system that Gunnel teaches.Color Vie is incredibly versatile. I love playing with it! The kaleidoscope in my first post has some fabric in it that I created with the Color Vie system.
