Keith Lo Bue's Class - Shrines and Icons

I'm baaaack! For those of you who don't know where I disappeared to, I attended a 3 day workshop in Connecticut called Art Is You and participated in Keith Lo Bue's classes all three days. Janet (Baskerville Designs) and I went together, full of excitement to learn... and learn we did! Keith is an amazing teacher... so full of information and so personable too. He's actually quite funny but at the same time very focused, giving each and every one of us individual attention to our projects. We couldn't be happier that we took his classes and now that it's over we're full of excitement to put all that information to work. But.... we're just plain exhausted! lol

What a great bunch of gals at the workshops. We had SO much fun! It's such an amazing environment at Art Is You where you are surrounded by like minds.. creative minds. And oooohhhhh the food! I won't even discuss what I ate and am now wearing... lol Sallianne and Ellen did a wonderful job of coordinating this workshop weekend for us on the East Coast. So many treats and treasures and so full of inspiration! Thank you Sal and Ellen! I know they have a fabulous line-up of instructors for next year so start planning to come... you will never be disappointed. Next year's theme is the Wizard of Oz and they're already paving the yellow brick road for you.

Janet and I are now back home with our husbands and families... back to reality... but this past weekend will stay with us every day to keep our creative spirits high. Stay tuned to see all the great new things we will do with our new found knowledge.

Oh... and no pictures.. sorry... but I'm sure there will be other attendees with all the incriminating photos. ;o)

Now to finish unpacking...

Hope you all had a great weekend.



P.S. Stop back soon so I can tell you about the horrific restaurant we went to one night. I firmly believe that good deserves attention... but then so does bad... and this was really bad.

Glad to hear you had a good time! It really does re-energize the soul to be around artsy-minded folks, doesn't it?
Aren't Keith's pieces amazing in person?
Can't wait to see what you make with your new inspiration!

You're right Jeanette.. to see Keith's art in person... OMG.... he's so amazing. We now have to live up to the challenge.. to work with our new found knowledge.

Thanks Jo... we were lucky and we know it... Keith is an amazing and fun teacher.

Hmm.. wanting more about Keith .. I don't have any pictures. I was too engrossed in all he had to teach us. We are very fortunate to now have so much of his experience with techniques to use in our work. If you do have the opportunity to take his classes... don't hesitate!
