Watercolor Workshop: Bones, Beetles & Bell Jars

We had a great time at our Mother's Day weekend watercolor workshop! It was inspiring to meet our small group—somehow we always are gifted with talented people. I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend than watercolor painting a cabinet of curiosities with sketching companions.

The discussion was really pleasant. I got a few hot tips on how to compile my own curiosities-style still life, travel discussion and recommendation and of course, a good portion of shop talk!

Painting Mary Jo's collection was a dream, so I may take those tips and build my own still life. And maybe I'll have to update this entry with my finished painting, once it's completed!
