It's funny the things people focus on-- if I had a dollar for everytime someone asks me, "where'd you get that t-shirt?" I'd be making a down payment on the dreamy beach cottage that has been taking up way to much real estate in my imagination.
Of course I always send people directly to Alena's site. What I don't tell them is that last September at the Squam Art Fair when I saw her put it out (you know, before the doors opened) I raced over to claim it for myself as it was the only one available.
I know, bad bad bad. Shame on me. How will I ever live with the guilt? Hey-- I know! We'll have Alena be our very first artist in the new series of online workshops that we are offering.
Last September, I watched a group of people float into the dining hall. They were full of energy and light. As they placed their work into the gallery I went over and asked what class they were taking and in unison (in a voice reserved for things most loved like buttercake or chocolate mousse) they turned and said, “Alena Hennessy’s.” And so it was.
In her first offering for Squam, Alena knocked it out of the park. The requests for her to return came pouring in-- both from people who had taken the class and from those who had seen the work that came out of it and wanted to get the chance to spend time with this woman who taught painting as alchemy: art mixed with movement, intuition, spirit and plain old magic.
Here in squamlandia, we are pretty partial to all things magic (whether they be plain old or gussied up) so I'm happy to announce the launch of a brand new offering: online workshops.
Go on-- check it out. Or wait, ask me how I feel about the fact that more people in more places can enjoy squam magic without having to interrupt their weekly schedules or get on a plane and take their clothes off for security (not that I'm against taking your clothes off, I just think there are more fun places to do it and not to say you have to wear clothes while you do an online workshop-- hell! That's even more part of the fun, no?).
But I digress . . .
maybe I just want to share with you that I am happy but I probably could've done that by simply singing out.
