|Remember how excited I was to be sketching and watercoloring in Jane LaFazio's workshop?
|My "tiny tarnished tome" from Kari McKnight Holbrooke's workshop
|After Seth Apter's bookbinding class, I came home and "went to town," creating my own bound books.
The other workshop I took this past year was a Zentangle class at Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, back in May.
|My completed practice tile from Zentangle class
|Simon Sparrow's mosaic, "Assemblage of Faces"
|Jon Serl's "Family Band"
|Detail from George Widener's "Blue Monday (Reversal)"
|The artist at work on his amazing mosaic project at the time of my visit.
|My daughters giving the artist's dog a pat in the midst of the mosaic garden.
|Head to the Magic Gardens in Philadelphia for a multi-layered mosaic extravaganza!
huge haul I still have from my visits to the show. But it is very, very hard to resist!
|Stores with beautiful displays, like Terrain
|Thrift shops, like The White Elephant at St. Francis of Assisi in my neighborhood
|Art shows with wonderful collage art, like the Wallingford Community Arts Center Holiday Sale
|Flea markets, like the huge one in the multi-tiered parking lot of our local community college
|Yard sales, like the ones we enjoy around town during Media Garage Sale Days
I hope you will come along with me during the next year to find out what artful excursions await!
