I'm spending the week in Hendersonville, North Carolina at the fabulous art retreat called Kanuga.  The grounds are fabulous, woodsy yet elegant.  There are eleven different workshops taking place at the same time.  All the instructors are significant names in the watercolor world.  I am taking Mary Alice Braukman's texture and mixed media workshop.  Here are a few photo's from the first day....look at all the STUFF!  We painted tissue this morning along with some other interesting processes.  The information came fast and furious and the day zipped by!    I took some photos early this morning of the grounds.  I will try to find a few minutes and make a slide show in the next couple of days.  They are keeping us pretty busy here at "art camp".  No internet connection except in the lobby.  I will attempt to share each day with all of you.

The Kanuga workshop week is already planned for next year.  Check out their website if you are interested.  It is a special experience to be in this kind of setting, sharing art energy with over 250 people!

What a wonderful workshop you attended, Myrna! You have so many awards, shows, workshops, etc in the US! Are there a lot more people confident enough to try their hand at painting? There surely is a lot of opportunities!

Looks like FUN, Myrna! Wish I could be there. Have a great time.

I wish I lived closer to workshop areas! This sounds like a fun one

Oh MYRNA, I was there also - did we missed meeting each other?

Hi Marie, Yes, the watercolor world is very vibrant here.

Kathy, we missed you at Kanuga but I see you are very busy producing amazing paintings, so your time is being well spent!

Hi Kay, I hope you get a chance to take a workshop. They are fun and very educational.

Mary, I must have missed meeting you! Darn! I did meet lots of great people during the week.

We must of been watching Mike Bailey at the same time (am the one with all the questions moving from the back of the crowd slowly and finally able to snag a seat up front before his final a gut puncher of beauty truly was. Sucked my breath in rather than having it taken away. Should have known that was your piece in Mary Alice's workshop that drolled over! Hopefully will be an annual retreat and won't miss the opportunity next year!
