Silk Painting Lessons

I know I have said this has been crazy over here. But it really has. I have all intentions of posting to the blog more frequently but the reality is that I just haven't had the time and I am at a spot with a few projects that I cannot share details until they launch...which is very soon. With all the work, I have been a bot stressed...until this past Sunday when three great kids arrived to paint, laugh and learn...

My awesome yoga instructor (Andrea) asked me a while ago if I could talk to her daughter and some friends about what I do for a living. We decided it would be fun to do a project with them. On Sunday, Zora, Hanna and Gege arrived for a silk painting lesson and casual chat about what I do for a living. I had so much fun. I think they could have stayed all afternoon painting larger images. Zora is convinced I should offer a "workshop" in the summer where they come back and we all sit outside in the garden and paint. This is not a bad idea...maybe a bigger painting?We will see.

Here are photos of the talented young artist hard at work.

We set up two "stations" to work at. Station 1: The practice area.
Below is Hanna practicing and Gege observing.
Zora, testing out the colors.
Station 2: Everyone hard at work on their final pieces. Gege is practicing the painting process.

Zora's art work was based on the 4 seasons.
Hanna's artwork is Hungarian folk inspired
Gege's inspired by geometrics and fleur d'lei elements
A big thank you to Zora, Hanna and Gege for coming over and sharing your talents with me!
