A few souvenirs I got from the workshop.
Notecards, stickers, tattoos!!
The black and white napkin is just one brought in that has birds on it - so I had to bring one home :)
Carol sells notecards, tee shirts, books, and gives out tattoos (which says Good Girl Bad Girl) with her swimmer portrait on it, and little tie-tac pins; she sells books and smaller paintings so there is no reason not to take little bit of Carol Carter art home with you after a workshop!
This little book has her Small Intruder paintings inside - lots of deliciously pretty and fun insects!!
And, of course, all of her watercolor paintings call to me. It was hard to choose, but I chose this one of shallots and carrots because it really shows on the painting what she showed us in the workshop - the flow of the colors, the bold, pure colors, the shapes, etc.
This one will be matted and framed and hung on my wall and loved every day.
But artists cannot live on painting alone!
So I picked up a few yummies at the local Party Source store to keep me energized and happy. Bourbon and chocolate - what more is there to say?
YUM YUM YUM.
More to come from Day 3 of the workshop next - stay tuned! Oh, now that I'm talking and thinking about it and reviewing the photos, I wish it had been a week long event (but at the time, my feet and legs from standing all day were telling me three days was plenty and time to sit for a day).
