Back in April, I got to take another workshop with Freddy Moran in Mt Vernon, Washington.
Freddy, showing one of her latest works. The one behind is also made by her.
Here's Freddy saying something like, "I never know what I'm going to make until I start."
She demonstrated with the piece behind her, saying, "Just start...glue this flower here (as she plops it on), and this one there...(another plop), then a stem, a leaf, whatever.... Then take a look and see what you want to do next."
She also said, "If you don't like it, leave it on your wall and keep looking at it.
Eventually, you'll figure out what you want to do."
Mary Keasler came all the way from Tennessee and made this beautiful piece.
I spent two days making one big mess, but I had fun and learned a ton!
The last of the tulips were blooming nearby.
And bringing color to the local farmer's market.
Since then, I went to San Francisco and met a wonderful man who's creating a very exciting book.
