This weekends workshop at The Raft, at Arugula Farms in Santa Barbara was a fun time. Everybody got their creative juices flowing. Doug’s cousins were here so drinks were served after lunch… of course it’s not like I haven’t seen that before, just not setting a precedent!!! Quinoa salad and buretta cheese from Italy with jalapeño bread…. mmmmm we know how to feed you, soul, stomach and mind. I was happy to finish a piece I had started earlier in the week. Now “Four Asian Plates” is finished and framed. Thank you Nicole, Mimi, Kristi and Justine for making this a great weekend. Special thanks to my husband Doug Smith for making a great lunch and cocktails. Also a big thank you to Nancy Smith for taking us all out to dinner. Exhausted yet? Bloody Mary with that? Hope to see you at the next fabulous tile smashing, grout slapping workshop here on July 13 and 14. Saturday is from 10 til 5 and Sunday is a quick 10 til noon and then you’re taking your finished piece and dirty little grout hands home!!!
