Laura Nelson Painting Workshops

Laura Nelson Painting Workshops

“After many requests, I am putting out some tentative dates for painting workshops in my home studio.
They are full, one, or two day workshops which include all materials ( paints, brushes, canvas, easels, tables, palettes etc.) plus nibblies and a happy hour drink. 9:30 – 4:00 happy hour with a half hour break for lunch. $100/day

DATES : January 6th – one day
January 13/14 – 2 day
Feb. 10th – one day

The focus is fun, no fear, techniques to express your unique personal style and unleashing your creative flow through the process of painting. If there are enough people who are interested in a mid week date or a specific date, let me know and I will try to make it happen.”

Easter Weekend In Fernie

The Runs

It’s always nice to see The Runs and this time our little kids got to feel to power of Fernie’s Number 2 band.

Art Shows

Not one but two art shows to attend on Saturday night. I went out alone but I saw so many friendly faces I didn’t feel like I was alone for one second. My first stop was Aileen and Kari’s art show. It was a great show with a top notch bartender that made it even better. Great art. Great people. Then I tagged along with some friends to Laura Nelson’s night at Fernie Museum and saw some of her new landscape work. If Fernie loves anything it’s mountains and trees and I get it because they’re both so beautiful.

Easter Egg Making & Hunting

We are finally at the age where I can take my 3 year old through a craft from start to finish and she’ll stay interested. It took quite a few steps to get our Easter eggs ready. We food dyed the eggs first, painted them and then we hunted them. I’ve never decorated eggs before, especially using a food dye, but it ended up looking amazing. The hardest part was the waiting between stages and the egg hunt. The best thing I could have done was put the eggs in plain sight, although I thought I did, because they couldn’t find them at all. I had to give hint after hint and then I ended up pointing right to them.

The Livery Brunch

We FINALLY made it out to The Livery for the Sunday Brunch and ended up paying $6 for two cups of coffee we didn’t even get to drink because our kids were out of control and they didn’t have a high chair for our 1 year old who needs to be contained. It was beyond frustrating but we will be back! Next time with no children.
