Women only Tour to Greece

The tickets are here and I'm really excited about Greece !
If you have a minute..........
A gifted friend of mine, Molly, who's a psychologist told me about progression therapy - it goes something like this.....

Sit still in a comfortable chair, close your eyes & do a few deep breathing inhale and exhale breaths. Imagine you are entering a room - in the room is a chair with the back to you. Walk into the room and sit opposite the other chair. In the other chair sits your 80 year old self. The other chair is a rocking chair. After a long life of putting others first, please tell your 80 year old self why you wanted to (insert something wonderful you wish you could do for yourself right now) and you never 'did'.
It really hits home about how you always putting yourself last.
This year I made a promise to myself "to always take care of me :)"
It seemed silly to say this to "me" but, I realized 'it really meant something'
We still have room for one more to join this group of creative women as we tour and journal our way through the Greek Isles for the Greek Muse workshop...if you'd like more info at

plein air painter - February FEATURE artist

Kathy Cayer Daigle
Artist Statement
It was on a trip to Venice that I first discovered the extraordinary paintings of the Spanish artist, Joaquin Sorolla. I was fascinated by the luminosity in his paintings. I knew instantly that I too wanted to try to evoke the emotions one felt when viewing his work. The way the light and movement made his work come alive mesmerized me. It was breathtaking!

plein air painter - January FEATURE Phil Panagrosso

plein air painter - Phil Panagrosso

Painting is an adventure. Going outdoors to paint, whether in the wilderness, the country, a village or the city, compounds and enhances the adventure, making everything more risky, more fun and a trip into the unknown. Each day spent painting out of doors is memorable.
