Spread 166 – The Last Artfest April 3, 2012

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Just came back from Artfest in Port Townsend, Washington. My 13 year old daughter Maya joined me this time. Beautiful change is always evident when teaching at an art retreat. But this time more than before, as this was the last Artfest. There is nothing sweeter for me than witnessing profound individual human transformations, being it of visionaries of art celebrations like Teesha and Tracy Moore, of friends, new and old, of individuals of all kinds, of my daughter, and of myself. No one is holding back in such occasions, only creating, expressing, bonding, humanity soaring!

If only I were in the US. I just recently learned about this ArtFest amazing-ness. I wish Israel had a art journaling community. Maybe I’ll help build a community. Love your art.

I wish I could have been there! I read marvelous stories about Artfest but I’ve never been there (my budget – which would have to include a plane ticket – never allowed it) I’m glad you had a great time Orly!
