Day 5 our final Day...Dillman's part 2.

 Susan, whom I met for the first time in Kalamazoo this early spring made a 10 hour trip to come to the workshop...what a delight it was to see her.  Amazing work and we all want a sheet of her hand calligraphy to use in our collage works...
 Mara, again I had to share another photo of that smile.  So proud.
 Kaye, a friend and grandmother of Mara here sharing her inspiration from the collage meditation book.  How cool is that?


 Pam, which I shared a photo of her collage she's doing for her grandson has a wonderful spirited palette. Of course we were all using our large collage paper now in our work.. Love it !!
 Bette...has made a collage for her granddaughters about sisters and used a copy of her granddaughters collage and hand print as a transfer.  Exploring all avenues of this collage process.
 Bette is sharing some of her larger piece in process.  We work in as we need to in this workshop. As of different approaches each and everyone explored.  Bette was afraid at first as we all are to cut the large abstract paper and use in our collages but once done...look out as you can see here.
 Carol our birthday girl...really was prolific this year and the progress is amazing.  The piece she is point to in the photo her is an inspiration of walking back to her room from the studio and what she saw...I'm so happy she was able to capture that.

And one more of Carol's...this is a larger size for her to work in and we talked about allowing space in our work and this a great start for her.

I know I took hundreds of picture but I'm not a photographer so some were too blurry to post.  What an amazing week...So grateful and thankful to have the experience again to share what I love to do with some warm and wonderful women. Till next year ladies....keep the Red Roof Society going.

  4. Sharing a creative process right now...in the kitchen with family. Test-tasting spice blends for a stir fry. Did you know that ketchup comes from Asia? Originally, it was more like fish sauce, with the salty flavor coming from anchovies. FYI
