My experience at CREATE Mixed Media retreat last week in Somerset, NJ was just as I had expected: inspirational, exhilarating, and just a bit exhausting. As they say in sports, I left it all out on the field. Between Friday at 9am and Sunday at noon, I taught 4 workshops and participated in the Artist's Fair, selling my wares. There is nothing quite like spending that many hours focused on art with so many people who are just as passionate about it as I am.

I think the following images speak for themselves...and they definitely say CREATE!
