In the fall I got a text from my friend (and fabulous artist), Marion Syme: Melinda Tidwell was coming to the Pacific Northwest Art School on Whidbey Island, Washington. I’ve long-admired Melinda’s work, so we jumped on the opportunity. And what a week it was. (Well, aside from the first night at a horrendous motel. And it’s hard for to get me creeped out by a motel; my standards are pretty low.) It was one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended, just the right mix of instruction and time to experiment and practice. Melinda was there if we wanted her, but happy to lay off if we weren’t quite ready.
Here are a few of the collages that I created during that week (ah, a week-long was so fabulous), and a few I’ve created since. If you love collage, or even if you want to learn more about abstract collage and composition, I can’t recommend Melinda’s workshop highly enough. Hopefully we can entice her to come to Canada for a week or so!
My classmate Dayna also posted about the workshop. Go!

Thanks, Pamela. It was such a great week. I’m keen to do it again any time (hint, hint!).
