A Visual Transformation

Attended a workshop in Ross, California (Marin County) with Stanka Kordic and eight other artists last month.  What I learned will begin to transform my practice.  I am so excited by techniques of wedges, brayers, brushes, and thought patterns of a master artist.

Marin County, Northern California, is a perfect setting.  Here we are outside at the studio of Elizabeth Gorek, our host.
