Art & Soul, Portland, Oregon September 2011

Me, in Jesse Reno's class
Just back from my first time teaching and taking at Art & Soul in Portland, Oregon.
I had a wonderful time, teaching, taking workshops and seeing beautiful downtown Portland. I'm excited to say I'll be teaching at Art & Soul again, in Las Vegas June 2012.

I taught two classes (and both were sold out, thank you!). Recycled Circles is always fun, because everyone's work turns out so different.

And I taught 'Sketching & Watercolor: Journal Style.' Students are always surprised at how well they do!

I took a workshop from Jesse Reno (that's my hand, we painted with our hands the first half of the class!)

Needless to say, this isn't my usual style of painting, but it was fun and freeing and I definitely will use some of what I learned in my sketchbook. 
I also took a really fun class from Liz Kettle, but I haven't unpacked yet, so I can't show you what I did in her class. Promise I'll post it soon.
