The past few years has been a whirlwind of travelling to amazing locations and communing with beautiful creative peeps all over this planet in my workshops and retreats. 
I am truly grateful for all of it!!

Along the way I began to think about ways to bring these incredible landscapes into my art

ps I'm taking a seven month sabbatical from teaching in person and will not be travelling outside of Australia until 2018 so now is the time to join me in my virtual classroom!

Here is just a teeny tiny glimpse of the places we explored and each landscape left its imprint on my heart. 

Luscious Landscapes will be the perfect way to satisfy our communal wanderlust and learn some new things together

BECAUSE


community is the best place to be held when we are learning.


from early morning vistas off the coast of Florida


 to afternoon panoramas overlooking the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales.


From the cactus dotted landscape of Baja California, Mexico.


to the breathtaking sunflower fields of Southern France


we explored sea caves in Portugal


and touched rainbows in Mexico


were bewitched by the beauty of Sweden


and beguiled by the charms of Ireland and the UK

All the info for Luscious Landscapes is here and I am also offering a special early bird price of just $50 until Dec 1st.

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN ONE OF THREE SPOTS IN THE NEW CLASS!!

Here are the six painting tutorials included in the class!
This class is self paced and fully downloadable. The videos are yours to keep forever and complete at your leisure. 

We do also have a Facebook community for the class and although it is not a structured teacher led class, I will be there to welcome you and interact for the first few weeks. 
After that I'll pop in every now and then to say hello <3

I also wanted to let you know that my popular Paint Mojo ecourse will run for the last time in January!! 
You can find out more about that class here and I will be posting more about that very special session soon!

In the meantime, best of luck with the giveaway and I hope to see you all bringing your creative wanderlust to the table in our virtual Luscious Landscapes class!!

This class looks amazing! I'd love a spot!

Karen Rapport said...

Yeah Tracey,
My favorite landscape has to be the Redrocks of Sedona AZ. At the bottom of Cathrdral Rock, where the blue stream babbles
Along, -and the towers of rocks line both sides of the riverbank....there is no place like it.

The landscape class is a terrific way for us to slow down and find gratitude in our everyday surroundings.
Just yesterday, I noticed a beautiful intricate spider web, listened to a nearby fountain. Your pictures
Help us to see and share the luscious landscapes found all through the world. Love this🌺

Robin Black said...

Love your art and I would love to give it a try!

Ros McKee said...

Excited to be sharing this course with you. I have travelled far and wide and have decided that one of the most beautiful landscapes was the outlook from my friend's home in NZ which had been in the family for three generations. They have sold as my beautiful friend has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma and she wants less house work and more life adventures while she can. My gift to them all, as a family, will be a "loosened" version of their family home's amazing outlook. Thank you Tracy for the gifts you share. Namaste

Make my landscape lucious!

Kierstan Betancourt said...

I would be so happy to win a spot in this class! I live in western Oregon so I'm surrounded by amazing landscapes. I think one of the most breathtaking one was seeing snowy Mt. Hood and snowy Mt. Saint Helens at the same time on a clear winter day for the first time after moving to Portland in 2003. Even though Mount Saint Helens is fairly far from Portland, under the right conditions it looks so close and so big. Simply breathtaking!

Thanks!!

Meri Beth Andriesse said...

I would love to win a seat in the workshop! My most treasured memory of a landscape is what I saw from a hot air balloon over the Napa Valley. It was a moment that sadly, can never be repeated in the same way. So glad to know your treatments are almost over.

Gaia said...

Many landscapes have taken my breath away but I am torn between two, both in Switzerland. As in one of your gorgeous photos, we drove by a field of sunflowers. A most spectacular sight...golds and greens,spots of dark throughout....for miles.
The second landscape but certainly not second of my favs. Was the mountain range in Switzerland. The stunning snowcapped mountains,the luscious green velleys below.

Tracy, thank you ffor bringing the beauty of your personal travels to these pages.

Oh my, what gorgeous paintings! One location (of many) that blew me away was Zion National Park here in the U.S.! Such amazing red rock formations and beautiful canyons. My fingers are crossed for the class and I will give up in sacrafice the last few TimTams our son brought us home from his trip there! ;)...well I'll try to.

Jean with Colors of JOY! said...

Hi.....I would be so honored and grateful to receive a special spot in the Landscape group!! My inspiration is nature...flowers, mountains, fields, water!!! The Colorado Rocky Mountains are one of my favs. The Mt. Kilimanjaro region in Tanzania where I have visited on a mission trip. So many wonderful places. Thanks so much

My landscape story takes me from the Himalayan Mountains to Mendocino County in California. I spent 6 months backpacking in the Himalaya 30 years ago not thinking anything could be so majestic. A week after my return home to California, I had an 8 hour drive to the far north of California. A friend suggested I stop at her friend's ranch in Mendocino County for a break. I couldn't believe the beauty of the Eel River watershed. I ended up buying a place there and still sit on the deck in awe. I've drawn the view, I've water-colored the view. I've never Tracy Verdugo-ed the view! Karla. curlersj@gmail.com

Jackie said...

Tracy, I'm so glad you're getting thru this treatment and almost on the other side! I'd love to win a spot in your class. I have many beautiful landscapes in mind, but one of them is a view from the Pyrenees mountains in Spain at one of the first stops on the Camino Du Santiago.

Deanne said...

Hi dear Tracy! I would say the landscape of Sea Ranch, California. This place holds a space in my heart as one that fills my soul - dramatic cliffs, all the colors the ocean has to offer, greens and golds ...so beautiful. Thank you for all that you do! xxx

Rossana Russo said...

Love your art from the beginning!! Love to win a spot for your beautiful class!! Love you as person, you're so kind and special!!

Joan H. said...

So very heartened to hear that your treatments are nearly finished, Tracy! Woohoo! A diver guide took me to an off-limits part of the Great Maya Reef near Cancun, Mexico. As we came over the top of the reef, it opened onto the most colorful, most breathtaking valley of coral & fish that I have ever witnessed!

Pure Heart said...

One of my most memorable landscapes in my head was in Kauai We traveled on a dirt road to a special

beach to a special place where it is said souls leave the earth..... we arrived just before sunset and there was a Mini double rainbow that we saw the beginning and end and the the ocean. The clouds lay almost kissing the ocean and my breath was taken away. We brought the
We brought a lay to throw in the ocean in memory of my mom that passed that year. I will never forget it. ���� Have always wanted to paint just what you have shown in your displays of landscapes Crossing my fingers. Minnie Helvey@yahoo.com

Lesley Fitzpatrick said...

A landscape forever etched in my memory is travelling in a traditional Indonesian boat down the Green Canyon in West Java. It is like going back in time to a prehistoric rainforest. You arrive at a most beautiful narrow part of the waterway with towering sides and waterfalls all around. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have seen. I would love to win a spot in your class and try to capture this scene.

Victoria Scudamore said...

Hello dear Tracy. I was so thrilled I was able to take your magical class at Art is You in Santa Rosa.It was the start of my artistic passion. One of my favorite landscapes was Gordes, France.The city was high up on a hill with beautiful stone houses with red flowers on the windowsills, and blue doors.
I'm happy to hear your tratments are almost over, and that you can enjoy the summer.
Hugs,
victoria@victoriascudamore.com

Lydia Tatts said...


I spent some time in Cyprus doing archaeological field work and the ancient theatre at Kourion has since then been my go-to place when doing any meditation or visualising exercises. The expansive ocean view is like a spiritual slow, deep breath, while the steps of the ampthitheatre seem to embrace you like a pair of arms - as they have done for people since ancient times. Sorry I can't seem to post a pic...





Sueknoll said...

Thank you for this great opportunity to receive this class.my favorite landscape is New Mexico around Santa Fe and the road to Taos! The landscape changes and you can see forever! I love it!!!

One of the views that took my breath away was when I visited the giant redwood trees in Muir Woods while visiting CA. Stunning place! Oh and Sausalito CA isn't too shabby either... ❤ I am so glad to hear your treatments are wrapping up, much love and looking forward to paint Mojo in January!

Hi Tracy!!!!! PICK ME!!! PICK ME!!! I have never learned how to paint a landscape and have always wished I could paint one like Vincent Van Gogh!! Love your teachings and I'm learning a lot in your online class right now. Glad you're feeling better and hope you have a happy Christmas! Lydia

Viv Rad said...

Hi Tracy, this class looks like fun. There is a beautiful empty lot, across the street from a golfing range and Michaels. Brookfield, Wisconsin. Once a year, the whole field blooms with thousands and thousands of sunflowers. I hope they never decide to build there. It's a gem. It's so lovely and unexpected. I'd love to win a spot. Vivian Rad

mls said...

Great news you are almost done! What took my breath away was when we went to visit my husband in the Rocky mountains of Colorado. I decided to take a shortcut, which looked like a shortcut on the map but really wasn't, and head up there by way of Loveland, Co. And go up through Estes Park. I had never been to the Rocky Mountains before nor Estes Park. Unbeknownst to me i came to a State Park booth. They said i had to have a park sticker and pay. I was like what!, they said it is a State Park, i told him i will not look at the mountians, i am just trying to get to my husband. He chuckled i still had to pay. Ugh! So off we went. It was scary to drive, 2-lane and barely a shoulder. My sister and kids were astonished by the beauty. Not me for i was tightfisted, hands stuck to the steering wheel and my eyes so focused on the road. They even tried to get me to look. I yelled at them and said no i am driving, i was sweating bullets. We came to a part in the road where you can park and walk up one of the mountains. So we did. When we got out it was chilly, July and it was at least 10 degrees lower, As i looked around i was amazed by God's creation. How massive the mountains were! I wasnt afraid anymore after seeing their strength. Breathtaking beauty, green grass, small lakes of water and some snow too. We walked up the mountain and could see for days. It really shows how small we are in this world. Wow!

Hola lovely Tracy. Traveling by ferry from Cancun to Isla Mujeres....the colour of the water...beautiful blues. I was so moved by the beauty, it took my breath away. ahhh, if I were a mermaid. Thank you for a chance to win a spot. Xo

Linda Simpson said...

Thank you Tracy for the offer of a place in your class.

I have many fond memories and pictures of our trip to Italy, two of my favourite Island's Bruno and Capri have the most magical colours of landscapes and buildings. I would love to be able to learn to incorporate these into my art.

Cheers
Linda

KarenS said...

I would love to win a spot in this class!

Michelle Hammons said...

A few years ago I was riding my horse on my Grandmother's adjacent property in the Mississippi Delta and found a beautiful clearing with a small pond and and explosion of wildflowers. A stunning hidden gem!!

Helaine Bader said...

Aaah - I just LOVE landscapes! I really want to be able to bring their beauty onto the canvas. I love so many different landscapes - from deserts, to beaches, to mountains, to cities. But two of my favorites are the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado where I live and the gorgeous colors of Nice, France. Would love to win a spot in your class!

Snap said...

Thank you for the chance! I always loved the sunrise over the mountains in New Mexico and now, the water garden in my own back yard! Happy to hear your radiation treatments are coming to an end.

Linda Crawford said...

Great Smokey Mountains, Tennessee, USA. Would love to learn more from you <3

martine paquet said...

Thank you Tracy for this giveaway opportunity to win a mini mojo landscape class with you.
There are so many beautiful places I have seen... love the greatness of the North(Newfoundland, Baie James) and also the beauty of the sun on the cuban beaches and water...

CindySymington said...

Thanks for the opportunity to vie for a spot in Luscious Landscapes, Tracy. My most memorable landscape is found in Big Bend National Park with its altitude variations, huge sky that rumbles with color on top of the most interesting rock formations found anywhere. Always takes my breath away.
On another note, hope you are feeling the light at the end of the treatment tunnel. Hang in there, you have sooo many of us here sending you lots of love.

Rita Wege said...

Although I've never been there, the photos I've seen of Iceland's landscape blow me away. I would love to travel there some day. In the meantime, I'd love to win this class. Thank you!

Renee Kanowitz said...

Painting, listening, loving & laughing whilst enjoying your online series would be a magical way to spend time in my artful day - I'll hold thumbs for my goodluck to win.
Your inspiration blows me away so rock on girlfriend as blessings are sent you way ����⭐️

Renee Kanowitz said...

PS I haven't yet travelled to Alaska but to paint a glacier & witness the magic of the great north would be oh so special , imagine what memories I'd be able to incorporate into my art !!!

JackieW said...

Hi! I would love to win a spot Tracy! The landscape that took my breath away was when I drove through Zion National Park in Dec. the day after a fresh snow. The contrast of the beautiful red rocks and mountains against the sparkling white was breath taking!

Christy said...

Hi, Tracy! I hope I win a spot (along with everyone else!) - thank you for the opportunity. The physical earth landscape that most took my breath away was seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time - the sheer immensity and depth of that experience is beyond words. There have been so many breath-taking landscapes experienced and thankfully those yet to be experienced -- inner and outer!

Wintergreen said...

Hi there, I hope the end of your treatments go well!
The landscape that took my breath away... hard to choose just one, but I'd have to say it was the incredible view of the Rockies from the top of Blackcomb Mountain. I'd been planning and saving up for that ski trip for several years, and when I finally made it to the top... I couldn't see anything! The snow was coming down hard all day, but near the end of the afternoon it tapered off, and the skies cleared and it was majestic, white-capped mountains as far as the eye could see. I'll never forget it, it was the very picture of sobering grandeur.

Paula said...

There is majestic view from a gravel road up in the Tonto Hills area outside of Cave Creek, AZ that takes my breath away with the vastness of mountain vistas across the desert valley below. The multiple ranges of mountains look like ocean waves which is totally unexpected in this dry land far from the ocean. I would love to try and capture this beauty by taking your class. Thank you for your generosity and sharing your beautiful talent.

Rachel Lam said...

I would love the opportunity to take this class! The spot that took my breath away was standing on top of a mountain in Alaska, looking down at the ocean and nearby islands as eagles swooped around us.

Cheryl Y said...

Hi Tracy. Let me try this again. It didn't work the first time. I have looked at your Luscious Landscapes class about a million times - it looks wonderful. I love your work and your spirit. Thank you for this opportunity. Wish me luck!! Cheryl

Kristen said...

Although I haven't done much traveling, I am lucky enough to live in the gorgeous state of Vermont where the mountain views take my breath away every day! Thanks so much for this give away.

Black Sand Beach in Maui, Hawaii took my breath away. The turquoise water in contrast to the pitch black sand is mesmerizing.
Walking to the top of a blowhole you can see lava caves, golden green vegetagian and miles of waves crashing on the shore. It is forever embedded in my mind.

Chris O'Brien said...

Hi Tracy, Another wonderful class in a smorgasbord of wonderful classes. Of course, I'd love to be a winner of the Landscape class. Oh yes!
Blessings to you and your family over this holiday time.

Nancy's Nature said...

My favorite landscape is by the side of the road along the river in
Lyons, CO. The evergreens are always there enhancing the landscape while the river pours down falling over the rocks as it is moving along to provide beautiful music that calms my soul. I need moving water and the mountains give me masculine energy that makes the mix so perfect. To be able to understand how to bring landscapes to my art would be a delight. Thank you for offering this opportunity.

Congrats on your treatment nearing completion! I would love to win a spot on this course. These landscapes look luscious!

My favorite is from a recent trip to Kashmir - huge pine trees nestled in a lush green meadow with a fast-flowing, ice cold river tumbling through. It was bliss!

Thanks!

Mags said...

We spent over 3 weeks on four of the Hawaiian islands this past August. I would be hard pressed to choose my favorite landscape as every view was spectacular, from sunrise above the clouds on Maui to sunset near Hanalei on Kauai. How I would love to learn from one of my favorite artists (you) how to paint one of my hundreds of pictures in an exciting way. Would love to win a free spot! Thanks for the chance 👍

Beth Figiel said...

So glad your listening to your body & taking a break from travel. Last get away with DH we went to Brevard NC and played & hiked. Loved picking out small river rocks. The fall colors & the cool blue of the river & gold speckled rocks just beautiful & peaceful. Love to capture these colors & feelings.
Also shared on FB, Twitter & Instagram. Thanks!!!

I fell in love with the beautiful landscape while visiting Abiquiu NM. It's no wonder Georgia OKeeffe was so inspired to paint while there!

Winning a spot in your class would be amazing! I love many of the beautiful landscapes of New Mexico, but the Jemez Mts have to be my favorite. May God bless you with fast healing!

Pat Wolfson said...

Tracy, thank you for sharing your journey with us. When I am stressed and need to call up my favorite place, I go back to Monet's Garden @Giverny. The memory of the beautiful flowers, the tranquil lily pond, the picturesque Japanese bridge and the weeping willows set against the pink and green candy colored house never fail to renew my spirit and refresh my soul. Gpatwolf@gmail.com

Cathy M said...

My favourite landscape is the view on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have done this drive many times and each time it takes my breath away. Feels like a little piece of heaven. Would love to win a spot in your class. Thanks!

Josie Young said...

Hi Tracy, thank you for this opportunity. Nature is amazing and to be able to capture it on canvas in our own unique way would be a very special gift. Good to hear your treatments are almost over. I wish you all the best. By the way, so many of my friends who saw the paintings I did on the October Paint Mojo with you want to do one too, so I look forward to bringing them along next time you hold one in Melbourne. You are an inspiration. Love, Josie (josieyoung@gmail.com)

Lori said...

Hi Tracy! Glad to hear that you are almost done with your treatments and can soon enjoy summer. So many beautiful landscapes I've seen but the one place that my eyes couldn't get enough of was the Grand Canyon. At sunrise or at sunset, the play of colors on the canyon walls was breath taking. An ever changing medley of shades of color - it was like nature displaying heaven. Unforgettable! I wonder if it's possible to even get close to the feel of the atmosphere of the place in a painting? Would love to try! ❤️❤️❤️ Lori

K Widrin said...

One of my favorite landscapes is the view of the heart shaped rock at the Nakalele Blowhole in Maui. I so enjoy finding heart shapes in nature, and this one is really special. I would love to learn about painting landscapes in your class!

anab said...

Hi Tracy, Beatiful artwork! I would love to win a spot in your Luscious Landscapes class. I find landscapes to love everywhere I go. I enjoy seascapes as well as the countryside and vieuws over old towns and I have to say that I feel blessed every time I see a beautiful sunrise or sundown in my own backyard.

It would be such a treat to win a spot in this class. my email address is ghoagland (at) msn(dot)com. However, the best news is that you only have three more radiation treatments and can begin to walk the road of healing during the warmth and glow of summer time. Blessings to you my friend.

Sometimes passing by a beautiful piece of land and seen the light and the different tones of greens or even the earth tones, makes me want to stop and paint. Thanks for this chance to win a spot in your landscape course...
Xxxxoooo Barbados

Col said...

A landscape which takes my breath away (so many do!) is the ocean beach an hour or so before the sun goes down. It's absolute magic and makes me forget all of my cares and concerns, which still seems to surprise me. What a beautiful gift!

Connie said...

After climbing up a steeply inclined road, we arrived at a beautiful spot in the little town of Fiesole, high above the city of Florence. Looking out over the landscape as the sunset was just stunning! The fact that this was the beginning of a dream trip to Italy, added to the magic. Turning around we were able to view a stone staircase leading to the charming San Francesco Monastery which had stood in that spot since the 14th century. Perfection!

Adriana Moreira said...

So glad that you're about to done I'm still praying for you and always sending you lots of blessings and good vibes. Your trip must've been awesome and yes I would love to have a spot on your new class. didalrm@gmail.com xox

Mary said...

So happy you are nearing the end of your treatments! Sending you lots of love and good healing juju. Would love to win a spot in your course; looks like it's going to be a blast. <3

sue mcdonald said...

Tracy, you are such an inspiration!! Much love to you as you journey through the landscapes of healing! The landscape that took my breath away was in Kauai. My husband, challenged with Pancreatic Cancer was in remission and after 25 years decided we should take a honeymoon! It was a time like no other. The air of the island was so fragrant and ripe with the scents of Plumaria and ginger, love on the breezes. We sat awed by the oceans, watching the sea turtles and seals, the palms sway against the glitter of the sunlight on the turquoise water.
I would love to win the chance to try my hand at capturing those memories. He is gone now and what remains are the love and the glimpses of those times ...
Thanks! sue@betterearthnews.com

Valerie Calvert said...

Thankful prayers for all our life's blessings and creations.

anna maria said...

One of my favorite landscapes is right outside my window and right about now. The huge conifers that my father planted 40 years ago, sparkling in the golden light of this November sunset.
All the best,

julie spanos said...

I never tire seeing the connection of the beach and sky. This is hands-down one of my favorite landscapes. Any beach, any place. They are all unique in their own right, but common in the serenity that they provide and the shear beauty of colors and textures. Would love to learn how to paint one in your new landscape course.

Robyn Moore said...

Hi Tracy, The sunflower field really speaks to me, so incredibly gorgeous!! Wishing you all love and light in your healing journey <3 Robynmoore90@gmail.com

Your paintings evoke feelings of happiness! The colors are so alive. The landscape that takes my breath away are the prairies of Montana, near my home. Every season shows something new, and inspiring. Thank you for sharing yourself and your talent.

Suzanne Denning said...

Hi Tracy. I have two friends who have recently undergone treatment like you are. Although they lost their hair it has grown out nicely and they are both cancer free. Best wishes for your treatments. My favorite landscape is in Pescadero Mexico on the Baja. I have a view of the ocean from the front and the beautiful mountains to the back.

Oh my gosh- I always wondered when I would find that "place" that everyone else seems to have already encountered. That place where they want their ashes spread or that place that is holy to them. I never felt that until last year when my friend took me camping to a place called Jalama Beach an hour north of Santa Barbara. Beautiful, peaceful, dramatic and secluded. It clicked, I felt that magic and I now understand what everyone is talking about. I feel blessed ��

Hi Tracy, there are too many breathtaking , gorgeous ,awe inspiring landscapes to just name one. However, I do love our Blue Mountains in Sydney....not only for thier sheer beauty and awesomness, but for all my family memories of holidays and living there, full of warm memories of my beautiful inspiring mother. I would looooove to win a spot in this much anticipated mini mojo. Thank you. Rachel (rachsstuff@gmail.com)

Love anything you do Tracy, so glad your treatment is almost over. You have been in my prayers. For me it's between the beauty of New Zealand, where my sister lived and Hawaii where I also spent time with her before she died.

Lindsay said...

Hi Tracy!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a chance to win a spot in your class! I'm from Weymouth, Massachusetts USA but my favorite landscape was definitely a beach in a place called Sipalay in the Philippines! I hope to one day join you in person for your workshop in Bali! :) thank you! lindsayalexis13@gmail.com

Such gorgeous landscape photos! I love the landscapes at the cottage especially when there is a gorgeous sunset and the sky turns red, then the water seems red. I would love to learn how to do the clouds, trees and water!
Congrats on almost finishing the radiation. I did that over 20 years ago! There will come a time when you actually forget about it. Stay strong!

Suze Patterson said...

I have the universe in my soul,..you are teaching me to express it. One of my favorite landscapes are the pictures I take of sunflowers..acres and acres of blue sky and sunflowers. I live on the Prairie in central Kansas...would appreciate the chance of a spot! Xoxo

Linda said...

How generous of you to offer a spot in your class! (I plan to register tomorrow.) Your work is so inspiring. Keeping you in loving light as you near the end of your treatment.

I was at Otaki beach New Zealand in the afternoon and the deep blue grey of the Stone beach and the huge amounts of light grey driftwood against the green grey of the sea was just magical.

Sue Hamilton said...

I just registered the other day, but i'd love love love to give a spot in your class to my lovely friend Valerie, so we can paint on my deck together... bliss with a friend

My favorite landscapes have always been an ocean view. I will never forget the first time I ever saw the turquoise waters and white sands of Play del Carmen. Nothing has topped that yet!

Heather Neiman said...

I love seeing the evolutions of your work! I would love to win this course!!

I am uberly in love with color, sunflowers, birded area, cosmic skies, fields of green, the grounds of the fallen and water. The colors do something to my eyes and they speed up the pace of my heart. Being able to bring more of the colors to life would be another goal of mine in regards to my painting bucket list. making things pop off the page in color, is the ONLY way I could ever feel right about creating landscapes. Sometimes they come out so flat.. lifeless... in places where there is plenty of life. Really hoping to win one of your three slot.. it would totally be an honor to be in one of your online/in-person classes and receiving teachings by you.

Heather Rae said...

I've been totally intrigued with trying landscapes lately. I would love a spot in the class!

Graeme 'Grey' Gibson said...

What I love about the landscape that takes my breath away is how familiar it is to me. Yet this place - my local reservoir - is a vital and sacred part of my life.

Every week I practice Tai Chi with a few close others on its banks planted with thickets of upright Scots pine. Under their shelter we look out over the water, and its ever shifting population of birds from proud swans sailing by to speeding summer swallows.

We stand, usually in the same spot, as light, weather and wildlife shift in concert with the seasons. Our relationship with each other grows subtly, our hearts expanding in this special and lovely place. We bow in gratitude to what it brings us each week and know we are, even briefly, connected as one.

This is what I would like to celebrate and give thanks for on your course. A homage to a place of peace. I hope I might bring a sense of it with me.

Sue Young said...

My favorite landscapes are the lavender fields in Provence... sigh! Thanks for the chance to learn how to paint them!

Shay said...

I have a tree on the edge of the lake that I admire almost daily and can't imagine life without seeing it. You are an inspiration in so many ways!

Viv Rad said...

Grateful for your art classes and the opportunity to win one. Grateful to get up each morning and have another day to create. Grateful to my husband and dog Tio for getting me out of the house for walks in a winter wonderland (BC).
