P town was larger than life, a town rich in history of pilgrim settlers and artists. It is a small Portuguese fishing village that has been a home to many artists and evolved into a liberal playground for the gay and lesbian lifestyle. It is charming! The houses, the light houses, the beaches, the accents.... I enjoyed my time biking back and forth on Commercial avenue, strolling the art galleries, walking the pier and tasting the local food. It was a wonderful setting to be in during our conference.
I attended Lynette Haggard's worksop on working with a torch on Monday. This class will be helpful to get me comfortable working with a torch and to be able to work on a larger surface than my current 4' x 4' panels.
Tuesday and Wednesday I took Photo and encaustic with Elena De La Ville. This class was my favorite, and I was able to work in the studio both days, completing four new pieces. Elena was a dynamic teacher, and it was a real treat to learn some new techniques in this class.
