Italian Pilgrimage - May 2018

Blessed are those whose strength is in the Lord, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage...
psalm 84:5

I am in love.  Completely smitten.  

Traveling through Italy last year, Orvieto held my heart and didn’t let go.  
I still feel it's pull on my heart.  Even now it is a common dream wake from, 
walking along these cobblestones, a heart that is alight with creativity and joy.  
It is like walking into a Italian fairytale.

I have been honored this year to travel again...and to offer this trip to you!  
A shared blessing~ me and you in Italy!

Just imagine the palette of colors, the softness, the golden filtered light 
that the sun gifts this place.  

The beauty is so unique, you must experience it yourself.

We will learn helpful phrases and delicious meanings:


Che figata!  

and oh, so...bellissimo!
(I didn't know any Italian before my first trip - I will help you - and you can help me!)

Italian Pilgrimage  |  May 13-19 2018  |  Orvieto Italy

Orvieto, Italy

Orvieto is one of the most striking, memorable, and enjoyable hill towns in central Italy. 
Less than 90 minutes from Rome, Orvieto sits majestically high above the valley floor 
atop a big chunk of tufo volcanic stone, overlooking cypress-dotted Umbrian plains. 
A visit here will reward you with a delightful, perfectly preserved, and virtually traffic-free 
world highlighted by a colorful-inside-and-out cathedral and some of Italy's best wine.    
 - Rick Steves

With a short train ride from Rome, Florence, or a bit longer from Milan...it is a quiet town
 in the middle of the most wonderful hilly countryside.  Travel details are simple to follow, 
Michelle will be our planner, organizer, and helper.  She will help you all along the way in
 making your trip amazing!  I will be traveling after to Florence or Rome (still in the works)
 if you want to join me.  I also will have all the details for my travel if you want to meet up 

You are welcome to email me for details.  I would love to help you!

Because you are traveling with me...

We not only will appreciate all the history and architecture, the amazing vineyards,
 and delicious offerings. We will also find and create art in everywhere we go, 
make friends with everyone we meet (including four-legged), and experience this
 treasured time with all of our hearts.   

You will love it all...

I am inviting you to find your pilgrim feet in this artist’s sanctuary.  
You are going to be met by divine moments as you share this space – a sweet convent 
in Orvieto – with your small circle of friends, all while working and playing in your
 very own Italian studio.  Think of a beautiful fairytale, some of your best artist friends,
 at a favorite Italian café, with paints and wine in hand!  

Inspirations to fill your art journals all year long...

silly + sweet art mediums to try...

I am bringing together the best of my creative plans this spring to inspire your 
sketching, photography, watercolor, and words.  I am opening the doors to any
creative artistic medium.  I will share all kinds of techniques and fun projects 
along the way in a variety of arts.  Beginners are (my favorite) always welcome 
and artists of any medium are adored, encouraged and supported!  

A few of the things we can explore together...

Pen and ink
Illustrative coloring
Art journaling

Let Orvieto lead your artistic heart — all of your art will be collected and created in her
 town squares, cafés, and sanctuaries.  Your art and heart will thrive in our week together,
 you will be amazed at the art you create!

Much love and kisses on both cheeks!

Heartwarming *Open House* Online Workshop

Open House Week

a special week...to share our excitement of autumn's gifts

   There is still time to join our Online Heartwarming Workshop.
Open all year and packed with inspiration, loads of projects, and messy fun.  

 * * *

May I live this day...

Compassionate of heart
Clear in word
Gracious in awareness
Courageous in thought
Generous in love

- John O'Donohue

A bit of heartwarming goodness for you and me

Yes!  I am so thrilled that we can meet up for a moment this week.  I have been thinking of you each day as the projects come together.  I have great hopes that you are happy and that you are well.  I miss you and can't wait to catch up!  xoxo

It is such a gift to have you come over for a bit of early fun.  I hope you are still in your pajamas and I hope you are hungry, I have a kitchen full of warm fall pumpkins -- you will soon see!   (video sketch treats)
Open House weekends are always a swirling mess of art to finish, friends to chat with, and so much good food.  I hope it is the same for you. I would love to peek in your sketches and see your lovely work. I do hope you will join in and share when you can?  

Heartwarming.  Yes, I love this word -- and I love all it does to my creative spirit. It is a delightful and thoughtful word to pull apart, wrap around, and let fall softly on our hearts.
Perhaps you remember those times when you are so caught up in the moment, laughing with that big goofy smile?  (Yep, I am thinking of you-tube baby porcupine videos or the photo of Pinky lamb above)  You can't help but love the moment. Those undeniably happy-laugh sounds that just spill from your chest. Ha! 

We love silly moments of joy.  We are made for happy hearts.  We can't help but fall for the love-bomb cuteness. We delight in all that lights up our spirits. 

Yes, that is heartwarming.

Obviously a baby lamb photographer is in a constant state of giggles and smiles...I saved some good ones for our class.  I just wish I had a little porcupine!

Heartwarming is an encouraging word, a friend's tight hug, a well-wished letter of hope (and glitter), a mother's reassuring phone call, a child's impulsive smile, a prayer that is answered in hope and peace.

And this as well...the everyday and every-bit beautiful fall season. 

To watch nature as it unfurls its never ending glories...
magnificent and yes, heartwarming. 

For some early sketching fun, I invite you into this video.  It was so hard to pick just one project, but this was easy and silly (two of my favorite things).  I hope you fill up the page with lighthearted sketches!

*Video helps* A pink hue in the video is from the evening thunderstorm outside.  
Just think of it as our rose colored glasses!  
You can also make the video full screen clicking the square icon 
on the bottom right of the video screen.

Not only do we have sketches to fill sketchbooks, art to fill your hands and heart, brand new inspirations for the season, but we also have the added fun of my delightful sister's culinary arts.  Rhetta is joining us for a weekly delicious idea -- my favorites kinds, too.  She is amazing!

I can hardly wait to see what she has planned for us...

So, please grab a plate, my sister will be whisking up up a big batch of delicious in the kitchen, just follow the happy laughter! 

And let's look at the ideas for class that are shaping up:

beautiful barn collections
pumpkin potagers
fall berries with crisps & creams 
sweets & simples

a few first week projects...early fall harvests
a warm heart
autumn gatherings
a bloom & a bee

farm to table art
"be a blessing" table art
a garden in every pot

Autumn stories, quotes, prayers, 
and *new*coloring pages, too. 

It will be a mix of creative arts.  You can choose just one or do like me and try your hand at something new.  We have watercolor, block or canvas art, pencil, pen & ink, and art journaling on book paper.  I will have a little video for each technique in the classroom. You will have help all along the way, I promise. 

 * * *

We will have an online sharing community, one of the favorite parts of class for some artists!  A facebook group page that will provide you with a safe and easy way to share your work, creative thoughts, questions and encouraging words.  

It is also a great place to find a mix of new friends.  Please join us if you feel comfortable doing so!
