Travels -- Many Homes
On the road in New Mexico--horseback riding the High Road in Taos with my friend of many years, Martha...I am on Roanie, he was solid and steady despite sneaking mouthsfull of grass at every chance. Into the aspen forest. Trees not yet turning, but the air cool especially over the stream (which we crossed 23 times). Our guide and cowboy Blake, must have had some conversations with Cormac McCarthy. Blake could be a writer, or at least, he is a great storyteller. His love of horses made me feel closer to God.
Visits to family and friends, in the landscape where I gew up...so many places feel like home, especially in the company of Love. Dear friends and family. Inspired to paint.
Windows to the Soul: Creative Fun Art Classes & Discovering the Joy of Life
Fun is a keyword here! Make art with family and friends... in this class you will create original assemblages using the traditional Mexican tin nicho (box with a glass door). Choose from an interesting array of :
found objects, miniatures, milagros (pewter icons), beads and glitter, shells and buttons, collage images, bottle caps, sticks and stones, paint and fabric...
to invent a personal diorama that reflects your soul's images. Great for teenagers and groups. Enjoy a delicious lunch and at the end of this one-day workshop you will be nourished in heart and leave with an original piece of art of your own creation.
contact firstname.lastname@example.org Vonage phone 505-205-1316, or home phone in Mexico (52) 415-154-7010.
Art classes for children, too! Ages 4-12 welcome to create "secret boxes" using the same fun materials, or to experiment with paint and drawing materials. Open-studio approach nurtures young artists in freedom of expression.
San Miguel de Allende, a beautiful colonial city set in the Central Highlands of Mexico, is the ideal setting for nurturing your creative spirit as the bright colors and warm climate provide a visual feast for your soul.
A joyful life! Living in Mexico has been an adventure of soul, with its vibrant life and culture, and has provided a heart-filled base for me to create a business centered in art: art classes, art gallery, and art therapy. Here, the professions of Artist and Teacher are spoken of in capital letters...a culture which values the work the hands do.
Becoming bilingual is a gift that has opened a new way of perceiving the world. It is a welcoming atmosphere.
My life feels integrated here; allowing me to combine the intellectual pursuits that I fulfilled working on a Master's Degree, with the heart-filled work of being in the world and in community. Parts are getting connected!
