One last tidbit about Art and Soul 2010

Because we all make "stuff" everyone at Art and Soul already has something in common. One of the great things about these retreats is that you meet folks from all over the place. Some are only a few blocks or short miles away and others are halfway across the country or in another country. This year I met cool ladies from Canada. They were in my class on day one but since we didn't go around the room and babble about ourselves in an introduction I didn't know they were some of our northern neighbors. On the last day one of them asked me to recommend some local places to go to buy art supplies since shipping and customs to Canada is expensive. I gave them some hints and that was that. They also took some of the Daniel Smith colored gessos that I donated to the class. I had bought way too much and syphoned off what I thought I'd use in a reasonable time and gave the rest away. Since then we've had a few email exchanges and I noticed Irene had an interesting widget on her blog so I checked out.

It turns out I'm a daffodil. The online quiz I took says "You have a sunny disposition and are normally one of the first to show up for the party. You don't need too much attention from the host once you get there as you are more than capable of making yourself seen and heard." It's pretty much true although I'm more of a glass half empty than full person but I "try" to keep a good outlook on things.

If you'd like to check out Lennie's blog here it is. And last but not least here's Leslie's blog.

Until my next post,
