When my old friend Pat Kroth found out that I was going to be in Omaha she asked if I could make a detour to Madison, Wisconsin and do an acrylic ink workshop with her group the Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists. How could I refuse? I just wish it didn’t have to be such a short visit, I would have loved to stay an extra couple days to see a bit more of Wisconsin and take a short trip down to Chicago, but I had to get back home to get ready for my next teaching gig the following week in Folsom, California.
We only had 2 days for this workshop and I have to tell you from the start of the day til the end these gals cranked out the work! I don’t think I’ve had a class with this level of energy in some time.
My friend Wendy Butler Berns contemplates where to drip the ink next. It was really fun to not only get to see Wendy, but also Leslee Nelson (in pink) who I met a few weeks before in Florida at the Focus on Fiber retreat. By the way you need to check out Leslee’s Memory Cloths – embroidered vintage linens, .
Spring was just reaching full bloom in Madison at the beginning of May, I think it’s hard to look at those flowers and not want to paint them!
