9 days of giveaways- in celebration of an incredible year!!!

Paint Mojo France closing circle in July

Day one of my 9 day 2015 recap 
(cos' fitting it into one post was an impossibility!) 
is devoted to my amazing students. 
A post of gratitude for my wonderful hosts will be coming up soon!


Over the next couple of weeks I want to share with you my epic year and in celebration I will be hosting a massive giveaway with winners for each of the nine posts. 

Please sign up here to make sure you don't miss any of the giveaway chances!

I will be reflecting on my year through the lenses of color, curiosity, big magic, nourishment, art i made, love, wonder and wanderlust.

For a chance to win all you have to do is read through each post (maybe pour a glass of wine or a cup of tea first), scroll to the bottom to see what I am giving away that day and tell me something you loved about 2015!

Thank you for being a part of my world! 
each one of you makes it glisten a little more 

Oh my, what a year! 
I felt my heart expand and my vision both widen and simplify 
as I journeyed thousands of miles over nine months, 
teaching twenty Paint Mojo workshops and retreats in person, 
and more than 1000 students online while I travelled. 
Connecting deeply with my students, 
realising we all have the same fears and desires, the same yearning to feed our creative soul, 
the same voices of doubt holding us back.

KNOWING beyond a shadow of doubt
 that it is my mission and purpose 
to help my students step into their light, move past their fears, 
declare their beauty and strength and inspire others in the process.

I truly believe that we are in the midst of a creative R/EVOLUTION, 

that accessing our pure creative voice and giving it permission to flow, 
links us to Source, Love, God, Great Spirit, whatever name you choose
 and in honoring that connection 
more of all that is good enters the world.


If you'd like to join me to ignite your creative fire either in person (there are only a few spots left in my 2016 workshops here ) or online, you can keep an eye out on my website for whats new or better still sign up here to be kept in the loop for new paintings, workshops and ecourses! 

Join me below in a pictorial journey of this years Paint Mojo happenings!

                                        
We gathered in Palm Desert, California...... a beautiful space to create at Venus Studios!


Five days hanging out with these talented beauties was an awesome way to start my 2015 teaching tour :)

My dear friend Annie Hooten found the best venue for me in Albuquerque! 

and I got to hang out for a weekend with these amazing women!

I always adore teaching at the fabulous Studio Crescendoh!

and I always meet the sweetest people there.



I headed off for a triple dose of Texas LOVE!! 
First Houston....
with these gorgeous creatives!


Then Dallas where we wore flowers in our hair and sprawled out onto the sidewalk in the sunshine!



Beautiful Dallas smiles!



and last but not least I returned to awesome Austin
 where we always have a blast at my friend Janna's warehouse. 
Such a great space!
and an incredible diverse array of work!


Travelling North we explored the gorgeousness of Whidbey Island and had the most wonderful five days making art and enjoying the gracious hospitality of the Pacific Northwest Art School! I'll be back there next June if you'd like to join me for five days of exuberant painting! All the info is right here :)





Just look at the magic made by this years students!

I flew into Indianapolis and drove through the pretty countryside to the picture perfect town of Newburgh Indiana where I was greeted by the loveliest group of women!

We painted in the old Lock and Dam building right there on the banks of the Ohio


and enjoyed a super fun dinner together one evening :)
I cant wait to visit again in 2016 and there are just a few spots left so please come on over and check out the info here!


I always love a roadtrip so I jumped back into my rental car, turned the radio up and headed to Donna Downey's amazing studio in Huntersville North Carolina. 

Donna and her students cracked me up in the best of ways while we painted together for the weekend :)))

 Another roadtrip down to the coast to meet mi amor in the Outer Banks then together we headed to Long Island, NY for a remarkable three days of Paint Mojo in a sublime location by the beach. 


 These lovely women created a plethora of beauty!


The longest roadtrip of the US leg from NY to Florida was a bunch of fun with our youngest daughter Sienna joining us for the journey. We stopped for a few days on stunning Fripp Island, hosted by one of my lovely and generous students Iris Pattillo. 



I love returning to see my friends in St Pete Beach each year and look forward to next May when we'll be together again!
*Both 2016 Florida Paint Mojos are sold out but you can let us know if you'd like to be on the wait list by emailing info@tracyverdugo.com
You just never know when a spot might come up.

My last workshop in the US was held in Melbourne Florida and oh my...what a way to end!
The amazing space at Art More Place was beyond perfect and we all bonded like old friends....


in fact a big reunion is planned for next May and the class sold out in just a few days!

After three months in the US we crossed the big pond and headed to the UK and Europe for the first time in our lives! My first class got together in beautiful Brighton to find our Mojo....














and they certainly did!
 Then it was over to the lush green beauty of Ireland where we made magic in our beautiful surrounds for five days of fun!

My wonderful friend Pauline Agnew made sure everything was PERFECT! I couldn't have envisioned it any better!

 After Ireland we flew to France and eight of us, PLUS mi amor, thoroughly enjoyed a week together in the picturesque medieval village of Durfort. 
Our experience at La Cascade was one that we will remember for a lifetime.


scrumptious food and wine prepared by the sweetest chef Nese...

the sound of this beautiful stream outside our windows and moments of pure blissful connection.
so much sunshine and laughter!







and then came Portugal! Oh my, the food, the wine, the color and creative flair everywhere at Margaridas beautiful studio in Estoril!
and once again my dear students, each one gorgeous in their own way.... 


What a week!

so much amazing work and our spirits saturated with color and joy!

from Portugal we headed back through Spain and then hightailed it to the North of Germany, a roadtrip I wouldn't care to repeat, having picked up some dreadful virus along the way. My caring host Anna took me swiftly off to the Doctors and a course of antibiotics helped me get through the weekend, along with this bevy of amazing artists who put up with my coughing and filled my spirit with their good vibes!

Heading even more Northward we took the overnight ferry to Sweden where our dear friends Jenny, Simon, Lucas, Meya and Max took us in like family and fed me back to wellness with delicious home cooked meals. 

I so enjoyed my time Stockholm and my Scandinavian students (and a couple of lovelies from other parts of the planet) were an awesome and eager bunch. Several had never picked up a brush before. We were also lucky enough to have an amazing Chagall exhibition right upstairs from us so we soaked up the inspiration from that all weekend!



 Last stop on this grand workshop tour was whipped up by the effervescent Pascale Tichelaar who asked me if I wouldn't mind adding in just one more workshop in the Netherlands since we were going to be so close. 
I said YES and I'm so glad I did. 
Pascale and her family live in an amazingly beautiful place, 
were such fantastic and generous hosts and her studio is fantastic!


I met several of my wonderful online friends and adored all of these Dutch  and German beauties and their awesome paintings! 

**popping back in to edit because OMG how could I forget to include my last workshop of the year back home in our beautiful little village of Huskisson!!
We gathered in the local Scout Hall from all over Australia, two weeks after my return home, to share stories and spread our creative wings

an extraordinary group of creative seekers and a perfect way to end my teaching year!

and NOW if you managed to get through all of that......

Todays giveaway is one spot in each of my two Mini Mojo workshops, 
'Animalitos' and 'Pattern. Color. Texture!'
Valued at $59 each you can read more about these self paced, 
fully downloadable online workshops here

Good luck to everyone who enters today! 
Dont forget to leave a comment below to be in the draw!

Tomorrow I'll be giving away a little original painting and sharing my year through the lens of color!

I started hand painting Australian Animals and turning these drawings into greeting cards way back in the very early 90's. I love animals and any form of art that contains them, which reminds me, as well as illustrating human faces in my art Journalling I need to incorporate some animals as well ����✏

What a WONDERFUL post!!! It was like traveling the world right along side of you =) I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your globe-trotting and all of the spectacular creative fun you had. 2015 was a wonderful year for me and the two most amazing things that I love that my husband finally got a terrific job after being unemployed for 5 years in our terrible economy!! HOORAY! The second thing is that I have come so far in my personal art journey =) I feel like I am slowly coming into my own, and that feels SUPER! <3

Nichole Dyer said...

You have had some great adventures in 2015! I have to say that I love how I've become comfortable in my own skin in 2015. Comfortable as an artist, a friend, a mother and a lover. I've also learned how to depend less on others and really take a risk such as traveling to NYC for a fun art filled weekend over the summer. I see how trips like that can be very addictive!

Thanks again for sharing and being so giving!

Christy said...

WOW! Love seeing your students work!

Velvet Pearson said...

What a great year of teaching and traveling! And I spied my luck cousin Scarlet, who got to take the class in Newburgh!

Cindy Sutton said...

Oh how I would love to win :) Amazing art, amazing inspiration :)

Terry Walker said...

2015 was the year I found my courage. We had a summer of hurricane swells and I surfed the biggest waves of my life. Double overhead. Not bad for a 63 year old woman!!! I also found my courage and confidence with painting. I am listening to my inner painter, following the flow, and making bold moves. I am loving what is happening!

Victoria Scudamore said...

What a wonderful year, I'm so happy everything worked out for you at Venus Studios in Palm Desert, I told Deb she would love you!
Happy Holidaus and best wishes for a creative 2016.

Astrid Rosemergy said...

I loved following your awesome trip. bringing alive all of my own travel experiences. Since I was lucky enough to do a weekend workshop with you myself and having experienced the atmosphere in Class, made it even more real to feel the Love and Friendship in your Workshops. I had a year of growing, due to your Paint Mojo e-course (twice) and "Animalito's" and now looking forward to dive into "Pattern Texture Colour". Although having a lot of "Blocks" in 2015, I pushed through them and feel that you so inspired my own artistic Journey, that I feel I have found my very own storytelling in Art, and I am so grateful to you for that.

Catherine said...

What an amazing collection of groups, all looking totally happy and inspired? I wish I could have come to your Brighton workshop! The best thing about 2015 for me has been watching my little girl growing from a tiny baby into a feisty toddler with a wonderful personality. I can't wait to do lots of painting with her in the future!

Joy George said...

What an amazing journey for you Tracy,and how lucky all those ladies were to be part of it.
Have done a workshop and E-course with you and was very inspiring.

Heather S said...

So glad you enjoyed your travels and i am looking forward to seeing your next posts.

K said...

A live workshop with you is on my dream list, but an online one would keep me happy for a while!

Ildy Karsay said...

Dear Tracy,
In my whole life I painted with high expectations always concentrate to the result instead of the joy and freedom always know what to paint
Since your e-course I love create I am free and I don't care about the outcome just enjoy the process.
Thank you

Jo Murray said...

Animalitos....just the name conjures up such quirky creatures. Lucky students to do a real workshop with you. Looks like such productive fun.

Cindy Ceroky said...

I absolutely love your year in review. I have always been following you. I was dying when you went to Donna Downey's Studio, because how cool would that be to see such magic going on there?! I appreciate 2015 so much as I really really feel I have really reintroduced myself back into my art, and the artist who I want to be. I am not defined by what my Monday thru Friday job is. I want to truly embrace this art and find my inner muse! Art is definitely my calling, and it has been calling me all day and night. Youre teachings and offerings, books, and website are seriously inspirational to me.

Lynette (NZ) said...

What a wonderful year you've had and especially great that you continue to share the love with us <3

you asked about my year - it started with a family tragedy, but I also learned a lot, read some wise books, created some art, changed my diet and lost 10kg! this last thing seems the best :)))

I love your art and I'd love to win, especially a spot in "Animalitos"! thank you for this generous chance!

You were in Dallas? That must have been before i discovered you through a friend. So that was one really good thing about 2015, and I look forward to seeing more of your work and words in 2016. Thanks for taking the time to write and share your stories of your adventures.
