This recent arrival on my front porch was exciting! Here's what I said last year when I first announced my involvement in Creative Pilgrimage:
I was so honored and pleased when Jenny Doh invited me to be a part of her newest book about various art gatherings around the country. You know how much I love to go on about the amazing experience that is Squam Art Workshops. Of course, I would be thrilled to have my words be between the covers of a book that focuses purely on the magic of art retreats. Jenny also asked me to contribute a project. Fantastic! The potential to inspire keeps me constantly motivated. Teaching workshops, writing about creativity, sharing techniques... whether here on my blog or in print, these are the flames that fuel me.
It's great to finally hold it in my hands. Upon opening it, I was greeted with a photograph I had taken 2 years ago at Squam lake. I knew it would be here, but it still made me giddy to see it in such a sweet spot in the book.
Jenny asked for a photo of me being real... maybe laughing. I said, I knew just the one. Kathrin had caught me in a moment of hilarity a while back, and it's funny to see it here in print. It took a bit of courage to send it in, actually. But anyone who knows me, has undoubtedly seen me laughing hard. I just do.
This page has pictures from one of my printing workshops at Squam. Get's me excited just looking at it! That's my daughter's little finger holding down the page for me. Sweet.
This book is filled with the words, projects and photos of so many amazing creative teachers, I still can't believe I have the good fortune to be included in such a line-up. Happy day!
