Our Last Day at Dillman's Day 5

It's Friday Morning and all has been packed up, it's a feeling of sadness but one of also accomplishment.  We are living new and old friends. I know I don't do very well with Good-bye's. Had lot of them in my to true this into a wonderful positive I would like to say each hear gets better. I'm witnessing the progress in all of there creative works and that is why I teach...sharing techniques come natural to me as I personal want everyone to be creative and share their gifts. It's when you can witness growth and another person sense of accomplishment and they did this they problem solved their way through. That right there is so very special to me. 

Thank you all and We are booked for May 21's till May 26th 2016...

 Jill, used her Morning Collage Meditation as inspiration for her larger piece.  Working with the dark and light contrast from top to bottom.

 Mona, is working from a small square she cut from her Larger abstract collage papers as inspiration for this collage. Some time it's not so important that it looks just like it but there some that sparks memory and color that you want to capture.
 Adela, is showing many of her exercise piece there...I think this year she has made great progress...seems fear has walked out the door.

 In process, Adela is sharing her piece there.  I don't do a final critique, because I move around through the workshop time and help them I don't feel they need to have me do it now.  This is for them to show and tell.  it's about "Product, process, production" which was achieved this week.
 Mary Jo...which I lapsed in calling her Mary Lou and Mary Beth...silly of me...when I know her well...Oh keeps me human and grounded right?   Sorry Mary Jo..."MJ"  Wonderful adventurous work coming from her this week. And I think whole lot of Aha moments in the creative process of problem solving.   What is that all about...we it's the part where we as artist work out way through a piece seeking the use of the elements and principals of design...because most of our composition are coming from a inner sources then an outer subject matter.

 Jane...what a Free Bird, I'm just loving her creative spirit. One of our new gals to the workshop and she jumped right in exploring all avenues of process and paper making..we all loved her Large Abstract collage paper she made a the beginning of the workshop.

 Roz a local gal to this Northwoods, was with her Husband while he took a watercolor class with Joyce Hicks,   She had watched my demo on Saturday when I got her and next thing I know she was in my workshop. Her enthusiasm was contagious.  Loved what she was doing..and she's coming back for next weeks workshop with Tammy Deck,  
Here's our Gal..Look at that Smile...I would look up and see her watching me as I was finishing up some demo piece and she' would flash the biggest smile...She took off with the Red Roof them and even created a Tree house...What a great delight for us all to see this young one create. "Picasso said, " It takes one a long time to become young again."  I think she was our inspiration and reminder for the week. 


  1. What a successful workshop - lovely work and happy participants - looks like fun was had by all!

  2. It was Rolina...I here we were the happiest group there.


Thank you for stopping by and viewing my collage chatter, many creative blessings and peace to you and yours
