Magical Makerie

Me painting in the lovely Flora Bowley's class.

Getting in the flow.

Peaceful morning walk.

Ah the Makerie magical. I am still trying to ground my soul after the experience. Everything about the retreat was great!  Ali DeJohn did a fantastic job of organizing the whole weekend. She has a heart of gold, and I am truly inspired by her dedication to help others follow their heart. 

I had the good fortune of taking Flora Bowley's two day workshop. Her approach to teaching is so spiritual, soulful, and fun. She made me not to be afraid to paint on such a big canvas, and to share my work with the class. There were times when what she said to us pulled on my heart strings. It was hard not to cry at moments in the class.

Lastly, I did renew some friendships and made new ones. I had the coolest cottage mates, and we would stay up late drinking wine and laughing. The Makerie retreat enriched my life on so many levels, and plan to be back next year!
