I'm just back from the wonderful experience of attending Dreama Tolle Perry's workshop.  She is an amazing artist and instructor, providing great information for both your artistic journey and for your soul.  I came away feeling more focused, excited, and blessed than I could have imagined and can't wait to get back to the easel.  These paintings the result of the first two days during which the entire class painted the same image. Everyone did a lovely job, each with their own flavor. 
Dreama was incredible.  I'm so impressed by her vigilance and attention to each artist, rounding constantly, providing advice, affirmation, and encouragement, and her own philosophy and business sense.  It was like an artist's revival meeting.

The workshop took place in Carmel, Indiana, in the heart of the Arts and Design District.  It's a beautiful community just north of Indianapolis, with enough galleries, restaurants, and shopping to keep you occupied.  The building we were in was architecturally beautiful with huge windows where we could see and be seen by the shoppers and residents strolling by all day.  The only unfortunate thing was the weather as that part of Indiana got a little sampling of the nasty stuff blowing through the midwest this week, but not enough to slow us down.
