Before this season slips into the next, I want to express my gratitude for your interest in my art throughout the year.
A big thanks goes to the galleries & institutions that exhibit and sell my art, and the collectors who purchase it. Your enthusiasm inspires me. Even though we may not see or speak to each other often, you all hold a special place in my heart.
Having just returned from a painting retreat in the coastal jungle of Mexico, north of Sayulita, I’m eager to begin anew after the holidays.
After 10 days with no cell phone, internet or even electricity, my re-entry into the “real world” was a bit of a shock. Everything seemed so loud and busy.
Every moment of the experience was memorable and transformative.
Haramara was built entirely by hand on 12 acres of virgin jungle. Open air casitas are sprinkled on a winding path down the mountain to a spectacular private beach.
The food was unbelievably delicious and filling. Gourmet vegetarian with fresh fish daily – no wheat, no sugar, no salt, no preservatives.
The combined effect of a clean diet, strenuous hiking, nature’s energy and intense painting had a profound effect on me.
Our workshop leader was renowned California artist, Nicholas Wilton. His unique approach to accessing intuition combined with creative design principals was incredible. I’ve come back energized and inspired.
We were working on 12 panels at once, 12″ x 12″ each. I’ll be posting new paintings from the workshop soon, once they’re finished and photographed.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Holiday Season !
