I went to Santa Barbara for two weeks of painting the week after my last Claremont Class. It was supposed to make the fact that I had "retired " that much less painful. It gave me something else to think about and that was good. This week we will see how I deal without the class to prepare for.
Before I went to SB I was to decide what my series would be about. Since I had been on many trips the last two or three years and seem many different oceans of the world I wanted to paint "The Feeling and Impressions of the different oceans." I enjoyed the workshop and learned a lot, but was not sure I was successful in my series quest. I will keep working on some of the paintings to see if I can refine them a bit.

What a great day. So many friends together to visit with and enjoy seeing what they have been working on. It was like a "love fest", and so heart warming to hear them say that I had had an impact on so many lives. It is very humbling to think that over the past 20 years of teaching so many wonderful, talented people have passed through my class and so many have stayed in my life.
