This is a restaurant I ate at while in CO called The Fort, it is in Evergreen in the foothills. I drove down to meet an old friend and his wife that I hadn't seen in a few years. To be perfectly honest he was my first boyfriend. :) Him and his wife live in this beautiful place.
And these are the lovely ladies I spent the next 4 days with making art, laughter and friendships. From left to right Diane, Eileen, KC, Stephanie, Jacquie and myself. We met at this wonderful little quaint restaurant to get acquainted the night we all got into Longmont.
Here is the cool studio of KC Willis...the first day was full of sunshine and inspiration. We all had come from different parts of the country from Wis to Mich to Ill.
KC in front of her special little Victorian house she turned into her gallery/studio.
I love her artwork, they are pieces of art that tell a story and are truly inspirational.
Here we all are again
We worked in the studio together during the day from 9 to 4 and then met again for dinner around 7pm.
So, in case you haven't gotten the idea that I had a great time I just want to say that it not only was inspirational but magical. KC is the most giving artist not only of her talents and resources but of her self and her heart. I truly was impressed that this is her ministry to inspire and show the love of Christ in her art and to teach and share with others. Thank you KC. And I encourage anyone that wants to grow and be inspired to sign up for one of her retreats.... or anyone that just wants to laugh and find a little magic.
PS. I have been asked when the give away ends and it will end on Saturday and I will post the winner on Sunday. Sorry I didn't include the information.
