Raising the Bar with Michelle Ward

Here’s the status of the art from my trip to Valley Ridge Art Studios for a the Raising the Bar weekend workshop with Michelle Ward:

2 are finished.

These 2 are waiting – waiting for me to decide if I want to leave them as they are or add more.  I usually add more than these have but I just like looking at them.  I may enjoy them for a while then I might be ready to add more to them….

This one is waiting for something silly.

This workshop pushed me out of my comfort zone and exposed me to things would not have on my own.  Thanks Michelle for a great weekend of learning and great conversations.

    Looks like a great workshop! I love your pieces. I think the one with the circles is my favourite!

    Carolyn, these are wonderful. I can see that you got alot out of that workshop. YAY! I like the way they all thematically roll together, as well as visually. Nice artwork!

    And thanks for the comment on my “Leaves and Bumble Bees”! Comments are always welcome.

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog yesterday! It was kind-of a hectic day, and I only now found the time to react on all the comments people left me on my birthday and about the new magazine. Your work leaves me in ooh and aawe… love the pages you made!!! The backgrounds look promising too – you go girl!
