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... At artfest you're lucky if half of this list falls into place. For LK. Ludwig's workshop I came prepared...

Last but not least...Andrew Dyrdahl's: "Recycled Fabric Journal" workshop (might have just been my favorite workshop of the week?!) ....prolly cause Maria :) was my partner in crime: I had brought my Mom's 72' singer up to Port Townsend with me...but after meeting Andrew at the Friday night marketplace (where he sold out of his awesome monster dolls) he said there was no need to lug it all the way to class- that he had an extra (brand new in box) sewing machine for me to! Andrew is SO generous and patient. Really, you'd think he'd been teaching at...

Michelle Allen's : "What's your story!" Sorry for the delay of this post...back to real life has been back to real life in a big way. A sick little guy with his first ear infection :( on top of helping my mom gear her Seattle house purchase for renting has proven to be a hefty load...but we're making great progress. Jackers has been to the doctors and gotten an antibiotic and seems to be feeling much better already. Not too mention my Mom and I have painted the whole interior of her house and put in a new backsplash in...

Thought I'd share what our Welcome to Artfest 2011 check-in gift was... I'll now be grocery shopping in style while sipping tea out of my new Artfest Forever it. Whew, there are SO many pictures of Artfest I want to share with all of you, I'm about half way through uploading and tagging them all on Flickr...I managed to snap over 200 something pics! I'll start with my first workshop and throw in a few random photos at the end! Thursday workshop: Roxanne Padgett's; "Lush Layered Canvas" Roxanne is a fabulous teacher and I'd take her workshop again any...
