My husband John and I are thrilled to host the Big Bold Bloom Wild Painting Retreat in one of the most beautiful and nourishing settings in Florida. Atlantic Center for the Arts is located in a nature reserve, just a few miles from New Smyrna Beach. We will be working in the painting and sculpture studios in this architectural award winning space, and will stay in simple and peaceful housing on property.

It’s here!! Big Bold Blooms 2!! Let’s paint, draw, play and have fun as we create mixed media paintings using beautiful, abundant flowers as our muse! I am excited to share with you new techniques, new layers, and new tools! We will start small, in our sketchbooks, then work on several medium sized canvases and go all the way up to one big, beautiful bloom painting…36×48! This 5 week, 10 lesson class starts soon… October 3rd, 2016.

I hope you are enjoying lots of creativity these days. 2015 has been a great year for inspiration. I have truly enjoyed being a co-teacher with Carla Sonheim in our yearlong class 2015 Year of the Spark
Sharing so much artfulness with wonderful people from all over the globe has been a great gift.
Our community of talented, funny, generous creative spirits warms my heart every single day.
You guys rock!
And your art is Amazing!
So thanks to you all!!!!!!
We are continually astounded and inspired by you!!
Carla’s latest lesson has inspired me as well. She had us start by doing charcoal drawings from our childhood photos or childhood drawings. Next we paint with freedom of a child. (There are a few more steps here)
I loved doing the drawings!! Somehow my drawings took a different turn and became the bottom layer for a new series of paintings that feature flowers that are wildly overflowing in pots.
Thank you Carla for inspiring me to move my hands and trust the process 🙂 You are a tremendous artist and gifted teacher.
