Last but surely not least is my final Artfest recap... Michael deMeng's..."Zoo-illogical" workshop. Let me preface this post by announcing I know this style of art is not for everyone but it's good to keep an open mind *wink* wink* The supply list read: Gaudy old frames (probably nothing larger than 8”x10”, but really that is up to you) IMPORTANT: Needs to have some sort of backing! It can’t just be a hollow frame we need it to have a backing to build our relief on. Animal toys, doll parts, toy figurines, various body parts from models. The figures on trophies...

I figure I'll go backwards in recapping my Artfest, because I'm still working on finishing one of my pieces.... Not always do you finish your projects in a workshop....especially if you're me. I took note this past Artfest how particular I am about my surroundings when I art.  Like how I like to be in my little studio....relaxed (usually in my pajamas).... all alone, with MY art "stuff" all around...good music playing....and yummy coffee near by...etc. etc. You get the point...

I feel like I have an art hangover...if that's even possible?! Artfest was full of amazing experiences and again I learned a ton about my inner artist.

Shortly there after I had to say goodbye (for now) to Janne as she heads to Mexico for some much needed sunshine and R&R. Elizabeth headed back to chilly Alaska yesterday morning...I teared up a bit...
