Workshop

Well if I could have stayed I would !  The Joyce Hicks workshop was wonderful..From Day 1 to the end I never stopped learning something. Landscapes, and working in transparent watercolors,
and Joyces mantra  " Never revisit a brushstroke." 
  At the end of 4 days she had lots of demos and full paintings, then had a raffle .. Since there were six of us,  we all won something.
I was thrilled to get the one below.. 
As to staying right on the beach what can I say... it was beautiful.
Yes, got some sand in my toes , and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. .. So now I'm back and hope to apply what I've learned to my own paintings.. BJ
