Gloria Hill and I just got back from Boston last night. It was a journey that involved a lot more than miles – it was a painting adventure and self-exploration of artistic motives and direction. Thanks to the incredible Ellen Rolli for being our guide and mentor. Here’s a video of some of the work we did during the two-day workshop.
When we weren’t in the studio, Gloria and I were lucky enough to experience a few spectacular spring days in Boston. The Public Garden was ablaze with tulips, and all the trees were in bloom. ACHOO!
It was a fantastic trip. We even got to see the newly installed arial sculpture by Janet Echelman in downtown Boston – you’d think it would be easy to find a one-ton floating construction, but it took us a while to track it down. Well worth the effort, though!
So glad to be home, re-inspired and ready to go to work in my own Studio!
You are an incredible woman and I cannot express in words (as you know how I feel about writing) what your friendship, mentoring, encouragement, pushing and pulling to help me let go and move toward becoming the painter I hope to be. The Boston experience with Ellen has had an impact on me that will forever change my thinking and approach to my work.
Lyn and Gloria it was my pleasure and delight to work with both of you. Your commitment, energy and passion were contagious! Stay inspired and trust the process!
Lyn – this looked like so much fun! When are you going to have a class on what you learned?
Love what you did with Ellen!
Your picture of the arial sculpture was superior to any I’ve seen. Always feel close to home when I follow your incredible work on Shards.
