In February I attended a 3 day Dreama Tolle Perry workshop in Carmel Indiana and you can read about it here on my blog. I've since sold two of the paintings from that workshop and loved painting the tulips so yesterday I painted this with 3 friends, Maryann, Karen and Connie. There was a slow, gentle rain and Karen's studio windows were open and it made the day very special painting with dear friends and a Boo Boo Food Shop lunch break. I usually travel alone to workshops as others have husbands to tend to but in June we are all traveling together for the Dreama workshop in Lexington, KY and the peeps wanted a Dreama lesson before the trip. I showed them handouts and notes and Maryann furnished the tulips. Karen's neighbor furnished the blue Ball jar and we arranged tulips, took photos and set the flowers in the center of the table to paint. We are all four looking forward to the real deal in Kentucky.

I'm participating in the Leslie Saeta 30 Marketing Ideas in 30 Days and on Day 9 HERE we were asked to show the steps to our painting and post on her site. Here is the steps where I put in all the transparent colors.

 Dr. Oz and Joe Cross and the 3 day Juice Cleanse. If you are wanting to jump start your health this is an very interesting movie, 90 minutes and it's free, "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. I've been juicing (or blending as I have a Blendtec blender) for 3 days but eating a small meal in the evening prompting me to start another journal. I'm recording some of my favorite meals and recipes and the juice recipes Joe Cross gave. This eggplant was prompted by a Mark Bittman recipe on Dr. Oz here and he served it with polenta.
