Abstract Bliss Online Painting Retreat

August 16, 2020

A few weeks ago, my daughter and I started an online painting retreat with Mati Rose and Faith Evans Sills. We went on a virtual journey to Costa Rica and shared in Mati and Faiths adventures from past in person events. I used this time to create pieces for a body of work that I’ve been working on since last fall called Awakening. This is a close up photograph from warm up paintings during the first week.

I was inspired by the beach and by a coral reef painting that Australian Artist Ken Done shared in one of his painting videos a few weeks ago. I have been following his work since I was a little girl in Australia. The vibrant colors and abstract brush marks have always pulled me into his paintings. Enjoy a little look into his world through the video below.

As always thanks for following along on my journey!
