Portlandia Workshop!!!

I have spent the last week in Portland--!!

Yay and yippee!!

First... I taught a 4 day workshop in Menucha-- a beautiful retreat on the bluffs of the Columbia Gorge.

The workshop was 19 artists... from all over the West-- Oregon, Idaho, California, and Arizona.

What a wonderful group of people!

The workshop was sponsored by the WSO -- Watercolor Society of Oregon. Diana did a wondeful job of organizing the art details, and Christine did a wonderful job of keeping the home-logisitics solved.

We painted, ate exceptional meals, walked on the bluffs, talked till we couldn't talk anymore, watched movies at night--- Midnight in Paris, Van Gogh by Leonard Nimoy, and River Runs Through It.... and had a FIRE in a 10 ft fireplace. It was ALL so magical and beautiful.

I - for one- had a wonderful time-- and I believe the students did too.

I enjoyed meeting each and every one. There is always such a tapestry of interests and ideas. Our meal times were always filled with lively discussion and laughs.

The paintings produced were exceptional. As soon as I download the photos to my computer-- I will post.

Thank you to EVERYONE who made the workshop smooth and enjoyable. Thank you too... to ALL the students who traveled near and far to get together.

The inspiration, camaradarie, and creativity flowed...and I was so grateful to be a part of it!

Till next time!!

A quality brazilian hair bundles will have a very fine weft and will look more natural. Synthetic wigs cannot be styled -no coloring, perming, curling, or straightening allowed. Another disadvantage is that real brazilian hair bundles can be singed more easily, so take precaution when opening up a heated oven or dishwasher. If you're in need of a wig for a costume or you only wear them on rare occasions, going with cheap brazilian hair bundles is definitely the right option. I would never dream of spending more than $15 on a wig for a Halloween costume because chances are, I'm not going to use it again. However, if you believe hair is a fashion statement like Ms. Gaga or you have lost your hair, a real brazilian hair bundles is the proper choice. Not only will they look very natural in sunlight, you can style and dye the hair as well, giving you a much more flexible look. Depending on the quality and length, these virgin brazilian hair weave can cost hundreds of dollars but it can be well worth the investment if you plan on wearing them on a regular basis.
