I will be featuring four students that have taken every single class I have ever offered. These four were quick to sign up for the first "Level III" workshop I had last fall and it was during that class that I decided it was time to stop "thinking" and start "doing".
I am excited to announce that this month, in my studio, I will be featuring the work of Janice Adams-Filippelli, Karen Connell, Linda Erickson and Pamela McClanahan.

The pieces have started to arrive and I will be busy early next week making labels and hanging the show.
In the meantime, it's also become clear that it's time to take my annual break from teaching classes. After keeping a fairly regular workshop schedule during the fall and winter, every spring I start to feel the need to turn inward and concentrate on my own work for a few months. This year is no exception.
I always have mixed feeling about this. I love teaching and enjoy all the wonderful people I have met as a result. I also have a tendency to compare myself to others. I know quite a few photographers that maintain a fairly heavy workshop schedule and seem to be able to keep up with their personal work as well. How do they do that? Am I doing something wrong? I don't think it's important that I have answers to those questions, I just need to honor my own natural rhythm of retreating and recharging for a bit.
I am deeply inspired by the work my students are doing and I am looking forward to returning to my easel to do some of my own hand coloring. It's been awhile.......................
