Chasing the Winter Blues Away

by laurie jane kern on December 7, 2009

I have spent the day walking around half asleep as it was a cold windy and today it is pouring down rain.

Why am I sooooo tired? I was in a two day Chasing and Repousse with Nancy Megan Corwin which was held at the Jay Whaley Studio in San Diego. And let me tell you, being tired today was a very small price to pay for the experience.

Where do I begin to tell you what was covered – EVERYTHING

Where do I begin to tell you what I learned – A LOT

Where do I begin to tell you about the fellow students – SUCH A WONDERFUL GROUP OF PEOPLE

Nancy has such a reputation that 3 students flew in from out of town just for the class. They came from Reno Nevada, Chicago (Area) Illinois, and Oberlin, Oh-oh-Ohio.  Nany brought copies of her book and many of the items shown in the pictures. We all just wanted to run away with them.

So, lets get started…

Just a fraction of the tools Nancy brought.

In the pot and marked with the lining has been completed

Turned and ready for chasing

My finished piece!

For additional pictures look at this flickr photo stream from fellow student Elizabeth (how cold is it in Ohio today?)

Depends where in Ohio you are. In Cleveland, my computer tells me 21F outside. But because the dreaded Steelers got their comeuppence last night, today feels sunny & warm.

Mmm–nice work on the leaf; thanks for sharing.

Elizabeth,
Well once the rain stopped last night we had over 2″ of rain fall at our house and when I woke up this morning it was a chilly 35F outside. As we like to say “A fine scottish summer day!”

Sounds like a great class to take. In the one flickr photo it looks like your all asking for divine intervention for a successful day. Nice little leaf that you finished up with.

It’s 36.5 degrees with 70% humidity and 30% chance of snow. Yes, it’s going to snow today. Thanks for your article:)-Elizabeth
