What I did in Greece between classes...

This year I had a little time for some fun... I was inspired by some dried artichokes that the goat farmer shared with our group. Quickly done gestural and contour studies of the 'choke, each one done in less than 20 minutes. Acrylic on paper, 12" x 14".





And an image-collection trip in an old village on Skopelos...




















Art, Intuitively, in Greece, September 2014

For the second time in as many years, I led an art workshop on the magical island of Skopelos, Greece, in the Aegean Sea. My good friends Tom and Isabel Dempsey, directors of Island Center for the Arts, sponsor teachers each year to lead classes.
Again, I had a stupendous group of women as my students. I am awed by their bravery and honored to have been part of their creative journey. Each came with her own reasons for being in Skopelos. I watched as the group bonded, laughed, cried, and created together. And what amazing work was made!
