It was a long time coming, meeting up with my dear friend, Nellie Wortman. It had been five years since we have been able to hang together. Nellie traveled from Michigan, I from Arizona, and met up at a wonderful Retreat, "Roots and Wings", in Utah, right outside of Salt Lake City.
Our surroundings were perfect!
Food and drink were top notch.
Four beautiful creative souls came together to instruct us with classes each day.

Darling Lorraine Lewis opened her AMAZING home where we gathered for all our meals and an evening of musical entertainment.
(This painting was a collaboration done by our instructors while there. This one was gifted to Lorraine.)
Two doors down from Lorraine's home lives sweet Heidi. She hosted all of our workshops at her place. Our instructors gifted Heidi with this collaborated painting.
Nellie and I had the best table mates.

Lorraine had a home some of us can only dream about living in. I'll leave you with a few pictures of her endearing studio.
A big thank you also to my sweet friend, Denise Peterson for having Nellie and I stay with her while there. I regret that I did not get any pictures of her. You are the best Denise, so nurturing, kind and loving. Hope to see you soon.
