KEYS 4 ART DAY 2 AND 3 AND THE WONDERFUL LYNNE PERRELLA!!
We are so blessed to have such wonderful artists come teach at our little retreat! Last year we had Ingrid Dijkers whose art is just amazing and Julie Nutting who is not only a fabulous artist but a good friend of our group. This year????? Well....... READY FOR THIS?????? LYNNE PERRELLA!!!! WOO HOO!!! Yep!!! This wonderful artist agreed to come teach a two day workshop for Keys4Art 2012. Not only did she come teach, she actually stayed with us for the three nights that she was here. Not only is Lynne a fabulous artist, but she is the nicest - well COOLEST person I have met in a LONG time!! I had seen pictures of her and for some reason I had this image of a very serious... very, well... okay, I will admit it. I thought she would be stuffy and arrogant!! Boy was I surprised!!! She had just sat down in my car after arriving in Miami when she came out with a cuss word!!! GOTTA LOVE HER!!! She is fun and funny and just a pleasure to be around. She sat there talking to us about her vision of what art is or should be... about her life as an artist and her amazing work. She is articulate and intelligent and I could have sat there for hours just listening to her speak!! Every time we pulled out an image, she would not only recognize it, but give us the history on the image in order to put it into perspective for the art piece! This was my first class with Lynne and I hope to take many more. If you ever get a chance to take her class - jump on it. It will not only be a class - it will be an experience. I truly believe my art will change immensely after spending time with this amazing woman/artist! Lynne, Teri and I made it back from the airport just in time to eat Jacquie's wonderful paella!!! Welcome to So. Florida Lynne!! Val's Blog and Eileen's Blog. They have fabulous accounts of our retreat and are much more organized that I am!!! LOL!!! OOPS!!! Published too early!!! Here are the pictures!
