“You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” 
-Khalil Gibran 

I recently attended a watercolor workshop and can say it was amazing on so many levels.  Our amazing, generous, kind, hard-working and talented artist/instructor was Joyce Hicks.  I was grateful to have been able to join the Walloon Lake Art Group, so friendly, funny, welcoming, very inspiring and they too were amazing.  And if you have never been to northern Michigan.........you can't know how truly amazing and beautiful it is.  
Joyce demonstrated every morning and after lunch spent one on one time with as many as she could editing photos we brought to the workshop.  This is from one of my photos.

 Joyce has a book recently released called Painting Beautiful Watercolor Landscapes-Transform Ordinary Places into Extraordinary Scenes.  Great information and so pretty to look at.  These are a few pictures from our workshop.

    It begins..........                                                  
 we take a break........

almost finished.............

Oh, I don't know how I got to your blog, but the minute I saw a sketch at the top I knew it was Joyce Hicks .
When I saw the date I realized that one month later 10/23/14 I was taking her workshop in St. Petersburg,FL . What an amazing artist/teacher she is. I posted some of the workshop on my 'Journey' blog . Your work is outstanding..
