Hard Landing

It's never easy coming back to reality after spending days playing with art supplies and laughing with friends, new and old.

As promised, here are a few of the things I created at the RAEvn's Nest Art Retreat.

The assemblage is the (almost) finished piece from Michael deMeng's class.

He was a wonderful teacher - witty and informative and not too 'directive', so everyone had a chance to use his techniques and run wild. One of the best parts of the class was the end, when we all got to show our works and he critiqued them - mysteriously finding only the positive in each one! (Thank-you Michael)

I'll pop another post up soon about Jill Berry's wonderful book making class.

How can entire days just fly by? Spend them creating with creative people surrounding you!

Having seen your deMeng piece in person, this picture doesn't do it real justice. It's fabulous. I'm so glad we were able to take this class together. Ah-sem-blage isn't my 'cuppa' tea but it seems to be yours.

Thank you for sharing your RAEvN's Nest Art Retreat experience. I love the grate on your assemblage. I'm inspired to do some assemblages after seeing everyone's art.
