A GREAT DAY TODAY!
Meeting Dreama Tolle Perry was awesome! It was pretty intimidating at first, but once we settled in (and I learned that everyone else was a little overwhelmed also) the day proved to be chock full of fun. There were about twenty, friendly, like-minded women, and lots of new techniques and challenges. Dreama is just as sweet and encouraging as I had heard - and a fantastic teacher. That lady can put together a beautiful painting right in front of your eyes. It's mesmerizing to watch and she makes it look so easy. However, when you head to your own easel to put that new knowledge to work . . . it's not as easy as it looks.
Tomorrow . . . finishing up today's painting and starting a new one. Tonight we came back to the hotel after a great dinner and I did some more journaling. The topic? Next Tuesday, when the workshop is over, we're planning a fun day seeing more of this beautiful part of the country. On the itinerary is a visit to Ashford Stud, home to some Derby winners! So that was my inspiration for today's journal entry.
