The Art Nest June 2007

What an AMAZING 4 days. I don't know if I can describe in words how wonderful it was, but I am going to try.
Jen and I took off from Las Vegas around noon, and did not arrive at the cabin till almost 8pm their time. We had a bit of a hard time in the mountains of Utah...kinda got lost. So much for a navigation system. It does not work off the main roads! Next time I will follow directions! We did a little off roading but made it just fine! When we arrived we were greeted by everyone so warmly. Every body was sitting around getting to know one another. You could feel the excitement in the air. We had dinner on the deck. It was fabulous. Candice and Julie, our hosts had thought of everything.

Isn't the view from the deck WONDERFUL???
We had to share rooms and beds with fellow Nester's and it was great. Angel Chiasson was our suite mate and we stayed up late talking and getting to know each other. She has a piece of art in the Jul/Aug 2007 edition of Somerset Studio magazine. Of course I made her sign it!
The next morning we woke up and had breakfast, which of course was fabulous. Then we took Misty Mawn's class. What a great teacher she is. So giving of herself. I got to know her over the weekend and admire her even more. So sweet... BUT not as innocent as she seems! LOL She can let out some zingers every once in awhile. I just love her spirit! Her and Jen have that sweet and innocence thing going for them...

Here are some pictures from her class

Deb, showing her piece and explaining what she did.

Angel showing her piece.

Jen, Misty and me.

My paintings I did. of course Misty helped with the faces because I don't have the hang of that yet! I could go on more, but I am tooooooo tired. That was our first day of creating. I will post more tomorrow.
