Art biz musings & fruits of a mosaic workshop…

We are in Wales this week enjoying beaches, coves, caves, castles and LOTS of ice cream. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy beach combing for treasures. The stones on the local beaches are just beautiful, one type in particular is jet black and formed into geometric shapes by nature and very flat – perfect for mosaics.  I had a lovely surprise when we arrived at our friends where we are staying. Julia, who did one of my mosaic courses last year, had made this mosaic on her bathroom cabinet…how beautiful is that?

I the midst of it all I have snuck away to try and keep up with Kelly Rae’s Flying Lessons E-Course on developing your creative business. I have just read the last post and it has brought tears to my eyes. Kelly Rae, as well as teaching sound and creative practical strategies for developing a creative career, has conveyed thoughts about our humanity and way of being that resonate deeply with me. Being in a bit of a hurry to write this post (we have a castle to visit this morning!) I can’t expand on this right now but I promise I will in the next couple of weeks, sharing the key learning that I have gained from this wonderful course. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    Wow, Concetta! Was it really only 18 months ago? I'm so impressed! And I'm absolutely looking forward to hearing about your accomplishments and cheering you on.

    And I love your friend's mosaic! Wish I could take one of your classes. Maybe next time you visit Finland you could hold a workshop of sorts?!
