Art Retreat January 2010

Here I am at the beautiful Carlsbad Seapoint Resort for my winter art retreat.
This is the livingroom......
This is the set of windows with a fabulous view!
and... THIS is the view....
Here is my art table, all set to go....
My first page of my art journal.... trying way too many techniques. Learned that acrylic paint wont stick over oil pastels. Plus, the Sharpy poster paint pen wont either.
ok... don't laugh, even to yourself... this is my first attempt at an angel face. Got lots more to do to her. She looks like she has a sneer on! her hair wont be yellow either. I forgot to paint her halo first.
So, I stepped away from angel #1 to start another one... with closed eyes. She's far from done too. I'm watching tutorials and Youtube demos. Maybe I should step away and just paint. I'll work more on her tomorrow as well.
In the mean time... no sunset tonight. the fog rolled in, thick and creamy. I'm all tucked in with the fireplace and Joan Baez. Nice.


  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  2. Thank you Claudia. Hope you'll check back and see where I ended up.

    Is that you doing the pastel demo?
    Very nice!


Thanks for your comments!
Sweet Blessings and Big Love to you
