Whirlwindy Times Part 2

I taught 2 workshops in the month of October, in 2 different states other than my own….hence the name for these blogs….

Pacific Northwest Art School  “Alternate Approach to Nuno Felting” October 23-26th 2013

Beach finds....

Beach finds….

The day before my class started I took a walk on my favorite little beach which is accessed by a trail from a small park….I love this little snippet of beach….and I always somehow manage to get there when the tide is low….it delights me to no end to search thru the flotsam and jetsam that rolls in with the tide and to look at Nature’s inspirational palette…this find is simply a rock, a broken shell (for texture of course), a reed with moss on it and a feather…so simple…but it gave me great pleasure to look at it during my stay on Whidbey….
