It was pretty heavenly...
I hope you have friends with shared creative passions that you get to spend time making art with. It's just so fun to create alongside each other. Classes are good for this too, (and a good way to find those friends as well). I love being alone, and creating in silence, with just my thoughts for company, but more and more I am learning how imortant it is to take the time (which most all of us feel we don't have enough of), to spend with other creatives, creating. Creative community is so good for so many reasons: fills the well, inspires, helps us feel understood, etc. It doesn't have to be a get-away, but finding a good deal and meeting somewhere felt extra conducive to keeping the focus on our combined interests.We shared inspiring videos with each other, new supplies, techniques and of course, just relaxed and played, laughed and listened and learned. Good stuff.
I'm of the opinion we should all do it more often; spending creative time with friends, as well as alone.
This page, previously done by Mary Ann, felt appropriate here (besides being so delicious to look at); every trip has a goodbye. I'ts always a bummer when it comes to an end, but I'm enjoying extending it by sharing here on the blog. Tomorrow I'll have more photos that include a few fun exercises and adventures we had.
