If I thought the Carol Marine workshop was the bee's knees the first time, I can't begin to describe how I feel completing my SECOND workshop. You see, the first time I took her workshop I hadn't been painting too much - I would try, get discouraged, try again - I knew I had a lot to learn but I had no idea how much there was. CM is a gifted teacher! Such ease! She simply makes sense and is clear, sincere and practical.

AND three other students from the first workshop I took also came back for a second time, so I got to meet them again AND a whole bunch of new people, some from not too far away and others from my two FAVORITE states, Vermont and Rhode Island. I had such a good time and again, if you've never taken a Carol Marine workshop please consider it!

Other News: She taught me the trick to highlights! I'll test it out tomorrow and share.

More News Still: Things that go bump in the night. . . Brie, the dog, tried to sleep on top of the nightstand during her first night's stay at my parents' house. . . such the calamity at one a.m. . .
