Saturday was my second Saturday of hosting a workshop I created & invited people to register to attend, & I loved every minute of- even the washing of dirty dishes & palettes. No lie! Because when I am scrubbing and rinsing, I'm celebrating that I had something to wash off... my dreams are becoming real. It's truly happening... one dirty palette at a time.
Also, the workshops & creativity studios are teaching me that I love people & truly receive life from hosting gatherings, especially when they include sharing life at the table and making it possible for each person to explore the deep well of creativity that is within them.
Not only that, but I absolutely love the moment of surprise that always seems to happen when that one person who apologized in advance for not being an artist, creates something that I wish I could keep to hang on my wall because it is a thing a wonder & so dope.
So, friends I am thrilled to say that I am going to keep making room at the table. I have some dreams of collaborating with other artists in town and creating some fun spaces for the people in this great city of Houston to tap into their creativity as they share life around the big art table in Studio D.
Stay tuned and even check out what's all ready on the calendar by clicking HERE. I have workshop planned for June with watercolors, mimosas & John Coltrane vinyl on the record player that is bound to be a good time for all.
