Last of this series of postcards

Here are the last of the postcards from this series. I had so much fun with this.  Enjoy.

This last one is a postcard with John Arbuckle's background.  I accidentally took this one home so I collaged it with his permission.

Postcard Collage

While teaching at the Pacific NW Art School last week  John Arbuckle had an idea.  So He and Brian Kasstle I painted large pieces of illustration board.  Later we each cut our sheet down into  4" X 6" pieces for post cards. I collage around 17 postcards and will share the first batch in this post.

This is what my board looked like. It was something like 20 x 28.

Did This Really Happen?

It's been another long spell between posts.  I had been getting ready to teach a class on Whidbey Island with John Arbuckle and Brian Kasstle. (see previous post)  Well I am home now after a wonderful experience teaching the class.  So this post is about my trip out there.

This is a shot of the supplies we took to the island- actually there was even more than this.  That's John in the upper left.  All of this somehow fit in his Toyota Camry trunk along with our suitcases!!!

Here we are driving onto the ferry to the island

Group shot on the ferry.  From left- Brian, me, John, Irene and Jacki. Jacki and Irene came from Southern California for the class.  This was a reunion as we were all together February 2014 for a journaling day at Irene's house.

Two shots of the class in progress.

Last evening all together-

It was a magical time- such wonderful energy.
