From Rio to WA inspiration is everywhere!

What a fun and crazy week I had! When you’re married to a pilot you learn to fly by the seat of your pants! With our 11th anniversary approaching a trip came open and by sheer luck and miracles my husband was able to pick it up. 3 days and 2 nights in RIO!!!  I won’t go into the whole ‘How to get a Visa in two days or less’ scenario, but many thanks to one really nice person at the Brazilian Consulate in Chicago and thanks to Kinko’s for being open for passport photos at 1:30am!

Without much sleep we hit the streets and lovely streets they were!

And we had caipirinhas on the beach…

Copacabana Beach…

Shrimp anyone?

On to Christ the Redeemer what a view, this was my favorite part of the whole trip even though I was sick.

of course I had to take a few minutes to journal about the experience

One overnight flight and I was back in the USA and heading to Washington state. I got to visit my family and teach a workshop in Port Angeles!

Fun with PanPastels, encaustic, acrylics, collage and more!

and who should come to take my class but the daughter of one of my BFF’s from high school!

Everyone did such an awesome job, so much fun!!! Thank you all for the good time and yummy catered lunch Art Supplies Unlimited!
