Hi everyone, just got back from a wonderful week in Boone , North Carolina where I was asked to come and do 2 back to back workshops with 30 people who gather there every year for their summer camp. Some come from different parts of the US, others from Ireland and England.
I had an awesome time and wish to thank the group for their hospitality, warmth, and friendliness.
If you wish to see a few more pictures you can go to: http://www.briansimons.com/workshops_boone.html
Above is a painting by Dacia (participant) (24x30" acrylic/canvas) which she completed during one of the workshops. -Brian Simons
