I’ve just returned from teaching my last workshop of the year and it couldn’t have been held in a more perfect place – Hawaii! I had the honor and privilege of jurying the Hawaii Watercolor Society’s fall exhibition and teaching a 5-day workshop in Honolulu. This was my first trip to Hawaii and it exceeded all my expectations! The students were enthusiastic about the workshop content and the class was small, which gave me the opportunity to get to know each student on a personal basis. A special Mahalo goes out to Rochelle, Holly, Susan, and Carky for making my stay so comfortable, memorable, and magical.
