Art Camp 2007 is over ... and my heart is full of joy - oh not that it is over, but that it was as wonderful the second time round as that first magic long weekend, last June. It was the first weekend of winter and the sun shone brightly through four still days, the birds sang - and some enthusiastic children, at the next campsite, spent an afternoon with a karaoke machine (oh well, we needed a reminder we were still here on Earth).
Four days and three nights with warm, kind, witty and oh so talented women - the time passed so quickly. There was art chat, friends to hug, gifts galore and side trips to the hardware store, salvage yard and second-hand shop. I managed two beautiful walks on the beach, one alone and another in the company of friends.
Over the next day or two you will meet my friends, see the gifts I received and some of my art too.
On Saturday morning Jane very generously taught us some fabric painting techniques and we painted our own aprons. See the beautiful Sulea being photographed above, click on the picture to see more of the detail on her fabulous apron.
