What a difference a month makes… when we started to gather in November it was snowing, and I was getting teased that I brought the snow every time I was delivering a workshop in my old hometown. The circle has been broken… Today the mercury rose well above zero and the gorgeous weather we experienced on our drive from Saskatchewan to Calgary yesterday continued.
But, there was no time to bask in the sun. My eager design workshop participants gathered early for their individual tutorials. I was so impressed with all the hard work this group has put into their assignments. The day flew by with sharing sessions, color and design exercises and the exchange of ideas. I didn’t realize that I had spent from 8:30 am till 5:30 pm in the workshop space – the energy was still soaring high as we said good bye and wished each other Happy Holidays at the end of the day.
Enjoy the short slideshow of today’s color study. I made sure I had my camera on my desk this time but the times I was able to walk about and capture a few precious moments were brief…
And what is everybody researching in Calgary? Ann has chosen the giraffe; Sheila’s subject is the elephant; Sandra shared her personal encounter with Mr. Orange, a Spiny Back Mexican Iguana; Dorothy’s study subject is the Dragonfly, Alison has selected the Stellar Eagle; Helene is fascinated with a Succulent that is native to the Canary Islands, Diane is fully immersed in an in-depth study of pea fowl with a focus on the peacock; Kim’s special interest is in the Sally Lightfoot Crab and Nicole has selected the Cedar tree and its diversity.
With homework assignments distributed I can’t wait to see what will be presented in January.
