A Mini Retreat

I recognize that I am in overdrive work mode seven days a week and sometimes looking for an eight day week! As an artist I am always gratful for the work but recognize the need to take a break.
I spent the afternoon with my daughter at the Butterfly conservatory. What a beautiful time letting the images soak into my soul!! Nature is so healing.
It's not quite warm enough here in St. George to open my outdoor studio for the season and I needed to be surrounded with the flights of birds and butterflies and see the bright flowers. Spring can't come soon enough!

Feeling Blessed

Feeling so blessed after a weekend workshop for Capital City Scribes in Austin, Texas. What a delight to come to such a well organized guild!!! They took care of everything that I could possibly need and even had time to show me the Bluebonnets that line the highways and fields! It was such a joy to escape from the brownish muddy landscape of a still thawing Ontario and get into the warmth and full spring temperatures of Austin!!! Pure magic and so restorative to see the greens and the blooming plants. I was happy to share my Enchanted Letter class and look forward to the rest of my workshops this year. I seldom post pictures of myself but my dear friend Trish Taylor captured this picture and I will always cherish this memory.
A few more pictures captured from the weekend of the beautiful blooms on the roadside
. Austin you will be cherished in my heart and memories.
