Workshop with Flora Bowley

Our painting workshop space

I had such a great time at my painting workshop at The Makerie Art Retreat in Boulder last Friday. If you get a chance to attend the 2012 it!...because it's such a great experience to be able to explore and expand your creativity with some amazing teachers.

As I've mentioned before, I've been inspired by Flora Bowley's work for some time. Her painting workshop filled every expectation I had...of learning new techniques, letting go of self-imposed expectations and just experiencing the joy of painting for the day. Flora's method of teaching is open, gracious and motivating...allowing all of us to experience a wonderful day of artistic expression.

I'd like to send a big thank you out to Ali Dejohn and her team who brought The Makerie to life and provided such a warm and welcoming environment for all.

And a very special thanks to Flora, for giving all of us in her Friday class a day of art to remember and cherish!

These look fantastic Linda, we were lucky enough to have Flora visit our shores and I also took her workshop. Flora's one very inspiring lady.
