This week I taught twelve lovely ladies to paint large scale aspen forests with collage, paint and more.

Painting on this size canvas was so freeing, for everyone. Endless amounts of paint and collage filled up our spaces, and each and every one was different.

We could have made this class a full weekend, instead of a day. We could have built up so many more layers on these paintings. But the time we had was brilliant, and everyone learned new techniques, and got lost in their moments.

During each layer – of collage, then spray paint, then acrylic paint, then paint markers, and more – we laid our paintings out to dry on the beautiful new 20′ sidewalks of Ridgway, Colorado. And this was one of the best parts, to see the people walking by, and lighting up when they saw the art!

In the end, it seemed all were transformed during one afternoon, to a creative space that every human deserves to reserve for themselves  – more often than we do.

Thanks to everyone for a marvelous day!
