Throughout the summer, Yosemite Art Center provides wonderful FREE! art lessons taught by fabulous teachers! Last week was my third visit and I was honored to spend over four hours with Elaine Drew. We settled under the pine trees on the edge of a meadow with Half Dome as our backdrop. Surrounded by magnificent vistas, we brought our gaze (Zen style) down to the Sacred Geometry of a single pine cone.
People are scurrying through the Valley, snapping pictures everywhere. Somehow, spending four hours gazing at a single pine cone brought me to new depths of appreciation for Nature and the splendors of Yosemite.
I shared some wonderful conversations with Elaine and a few of the other students that day. While showing Elaine my little travel art journal, she shared about her Dream Art Journaling. I've recorded my dreams for introspection, but I've never thought to draw or sketch images from the dream. So, it was a double blessing received!
