We drove UP switchbacks to 10,000 feet on Squaw Mountain to Carol Nelson's workshop. Wrenn Boulton hosted it in her fantastic home/studio. Carol is a tiny little dynamo generously sharing her wisdom and ideas. I learned that cat litter can be used for more than one thing. Thanks to Carol, I have the courage to do more abstracts. Do yourself a favor and attend one of her workshops. Besides knowledge, you will come away stimulated with new ideas and new friends.
Wrenn has the dream studio. It is a three story home/studio that her husband, John, has built with classes in mind. They designed it so each student work station looks out a picture window at Pikes Peak, or downtown Denver, or carpets of multi-green trees. I included a picture of Wrenn's poppy in bloom in her deer proof (maybe?) garden.
I can't wait to go to work on Tyvek. I also learned from Wrenn that wiping Yupo with 409 helps. The enhancement of paintings by the use of clear epoxy is amazing. I can hardly wait to get to my studio!
