I depart in just under two days for a two week spell at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology www.sitkacenter.org. I think it’s no secret that this place is just about my favorite retreat; to teach as well as to indulge in a residency. I have been gifted this opportunity and am embracing it fully regardless of all that pulls at me and seems to shout ‘take care of me first! me first!’
New ideas and inspiration are just about spilling out of my ears and since the studio has become a full-on production place for encaustikits, and my mind, when at home, is filled with encausticamp and the aformentioned, I will use this time to the fullest and feel the blessings daily. I will pine, don’t get me wrong (two weeks without my new husband?!-gasp horrors!) but I will persevere, listen with an open heart, flow creative and gather all that comes my way. Feeling humbly blessed. in love. trish.
