Here's a recap of my Neskowin retreat...
I arrived a day early to prepare for the ladies. I was worried about the weather this time of year but it turned out to be absolutely gorgeous.
|So excited for a creative adventure!|
|It was hard to unpack with that view, just wanted to sit and stare out the window.|
|Setting up our creative space|
|Everyone received a hand painted folder with class materials and prints from me♥|
|I couldn't wait for the girls to arrive and open their presents!|
|My folks came up that afternoon to help me finish setting up, here's my dad feeding the seagulls|
|The girls arrived the next day, I fell in love with them instantly. Here's a peek at what they received♥|

|My amazing auntie was our cook for the week, she took good care of us.|
|We spotted a magical mushroom on an afternoon walk. This was such a thrill, I thought these only existed in fairy tales!|
|Miss Jude and I|
|Jodi and I|
|Cinda and I. I have 3 new sisters, I feel so lucky♥|
|We had a special visitor peek through the window during class. When I saw her she literally took my breath away, it was magic.|
|On our last day we wrote down our deepest desires, sealed them in a bottle and sent them out to sea♥|

|A group piece we all worked on. Everyone went home with one of my demo paintings. I kept this one♥|
I was so inspired by these ladies! It was such a joy to be around them. We all got along so well and genuinely enjoyed each others company. Lots of laughter, hugs, conversation, connection.
As I drive home I was so overcome with emotion, the tears would not stop. My heart is thankful for this amazing gathering.
