" It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving." ~Mother Teresa
"Love is being Alert.."
A wonderful friend of mine, gave me this great book...and today I found a nugget of joy I would like to share with you..
"You have to be alert to feel love of everything around you. You have to be aware of everything that's around you to love, otherwise you will miss things. You have to be alert to see the things that you love. You have to be alert to hear the sounds that you love. You have to be alert to catch the beautiful smells of flowers as you walk past them. You have to be alert to really taste the food you're eating and feel the fullness of the flavours......" By Rhonda Byrne from "the Power"
Here's to being alert in every moment..
On another very exciting note, I would like to announce a great new summer intensive program that a colleague and I have created ...
"Beyond the Cover: Beeswax Meets Mica, An Altered Book Assemblage"
An encaustic intensive class
Session 1: Thurs. July 21st, 2 p.m. to Sunday July 24th, Noon
Session 2: Monday July 25th, 2 pm. to Thurs. July 28th, Noon
Using the luminous elements of beeswax, the organic shimmery properties of mica and the vintage layers of a book, a new structure is birthed in a unique personal assemblage.
Together, Patrice Baker and Supria Karmakar will be altering books with you to create a unique piece of personal art. We will build spaces in the book to fill with your treasures and trinkets. We will also use transparent mica to create a window in the front cover as well as a page within the book. You will be able to layer ephemera between the sheets of mica for a fascinating effect. Pulling the whole book together with the luscious quality of encaustic. No experience is necessary.
$320 for 3 days of hands on fun, $75 supply fee; includes 2 Vegetarian lunches and 2 Vegetarian dinners by the fabulously talented, Resa Lent, chef and owner of Desert Rose in Elora.
