The location is beautiful and the monastery welcomes us and treats us well but it is the artists in the group that make a workshop special. It is a wonderful thing when artists of all abilities and from all over (even as far as Toronto!) come together and form new and lasting bonds of friendship. Everyone in this group were supportive of one another no matter how experienced with pastel and plein air. It was a group of kind and joyful people which made it a pleasure for me to share and celebrate their successes.
I am still getting unpacked and caught up and cannot wait to get back to my easel. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of the monastery so you can see the beauty that surrounded us all week.
