Students Work from the Last Workshop

This is an amazing painting created by Marianne Wilson Stein during the last workshop. I wanted to share it with all of you. I love her painting and the story that came from it. It is an amazing two days where you are free to create from deep within your heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did. Please click on the painting so you can see the whole thing.

    Thank you, this is a very beautiful tale and a strong intuition.

  2. Thanks Marisa, the photos really don’t do it justice. I love the stories that come out of the paintings. They really do come from deep places.

  3. Carolyn, I just re-read what I wrote last January about this piece and wow I realize now what happens when you release your dreams to the air. Life becomes richer and fuller. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, giving us the safe space to go to that place that needs to be heard and wants to play. I can’t wait until January 2012!
