Ocrafolk School workshop

We had a wonderful Watercolor with Grace and Ease workshop on Ocracoke Island last week. We stayed and I taught in the Soundfront Inn, one of the oldest buildings on Ocracoke. Our studio was a long glassed in porch with a fantastic view of Pamlico Sound.

Our class with their paintings

On Friday morning, we presented our work and talked about our week to all of the classes in the school. It had been a wonderful week of pushing ourselves to new creativity, enjoying incredibly delicious food, great music and fellowship with the residents of Ocracoke and members of the school.

Peaceful Journey

Our trip home from Ocracoke on the Cedar Island Ferry held one more incredible view..the most peaceful pastel water and sky I had seen on Pamlico Sound. This dreamlike vision becomes my special place. The porpoise evaded the camera, but will be in the painting.
