  1. I am not able to try to get into this seminar because I will be in Nashville May 8, but I’m glad that we are able to create our own piece of art, not from a prompt. I have already created a piece of art for this seminar. I am sad this seminar is on a day that I’m gone, I hope I can do it next year, and good luck to aspiring artists!!

  2. Even though I didn’t make it great job to those who did! I can’t wait to hear all about it!!!
