paint me happy

and because I couldn't resist sharing some of the joy filled faces with finished books from the weekend.... I wish I had one of everyone in the class!

You were such a great teacher Mati! You made my daughter feel so at ease and she began to paint and open her heart and let go of her stress- well.. it warmed a mother's heart and I will always be grateful. We will wear your pendants and enjoy your prints as a wonderful reminder of a joyful retreat!

Happy little birds!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed spending that time with you, learning about the way you paint, and think. Well, I guess I just have. It was a magical experience, never to be forgotten.

I managed another trip to Dick Blick yesterday too!

Mati, it was FANTASTIC to meet you and learn some of your great techniques, especially the 'short-cuts'!! (remember: it's NOT cheating - it's TIME EFFECTIVE!)

it was a wonderful time that i'll always remember =-)
