I would love to win and here is a poem to tell more...

21 secrets

I don’t yet have to tell
I hope I’m invited
To this bottomless well
Of ideas and colors and dreams all unique
My art longings are rising
My curiosity piqued
So much fine talent to cherish and learn from
A live presentation to join in for everyone
Secrets to learn in my home rain or sun
Fine techniques to observe from heart’s talents that thrive
I will soak up the learning and creatively strive
To honor gifts shared through 21 Secrets Live
Beautiful! Love the poem above me here. I've been a 21 Secrets artist for the past two years. SO excited to hear all these great artists share their gifts. Happy Happy!

I would dearly love to win a spot in this course because I would love the chance to learn as much as I can from amazing talented artists like you. I so love your work and would love any chance to learn more about your painting.
This course would be an incredible opportunity for me to learn from home. One day I want to spend my days painting near the sea. Right now I am learning as much as I can
Geri McLeod said…
i shared on facebook!! yayyy!!!

This course sounds wonderful and exactly what a budding new artist like myself needs. :) I find that I feel freer to express myself when I create in my art journal, rather than on canvas. It would be so much fun to be in class with others from the comfort of my own studio.
Grace said…
I would love to be in this workshop and experience the LIVE portion. That sounds so fun and more engaging.
Thank you...this is so generous. And what fun! I hope I win!!
Effie said…
I'm a hopeless journaler .... This might improve my none exisant skills
Crazy Art Girl said…
I shared this on FB. Sounds great. This is something I will have to do since I don't get out much to do workshops. I don't get to do much since I teach full-time. Always looking to inspire myself. Belinda
Hi Tracy, I've admired your art from afar...wishing I could attend one of your retreats. But raising two children alone doesn't fit with that right now. How wonderful to be able to work with you and the other 20 artists in my own living room!! Thanks for the opportunity...fingers and toes crossed:)

Hi Tracy
I'd love to have the opportunity to win a place on the 21 Secrets Live course. I've been playing along in 21 Secrets this year and have been loving it. If I were lucky enough to win one of the spots I'd like to pass it on to Donna Davidson (who wrote a comment above) as her words touched me and I think she would find peace and healing by doing the course. Love and happiness. Thea

I just signed up for 21 Secrets through the Christmas in July sale. I love these workshops. I live in Northern British Columbia where it is unaffordable to travel to "live" workshops. I too, am in cancer recovery and I find that art journaling and mixed media is the best medicine (besides my new yorkie puppy) EVER! I checked out the line up for the next 21 Secrets and it would be AMAZING to learn from these very talented artists. Good Luck to everyone!
Lisa Crail said…
It would be wonderful to attend classes with these amazingly talented artists. Am amazed by the kindness of sharing that happens...thank you for the opportunity...

This sounds so awesome! I am new to mixed media and there is so much to learn! This class has such a broad array of styles to offer as well. It would be a joy and a privilege to win a spot! Thank you! Teresa Roberts
Regan Tomlin said…
So in the past two years, I have been starting to walk on my artistic legs if you will. I have entered into an international art competition, won a local one, and secured a solo art show for next year! I feel super excited to be moving forward (finally forward) in this journey and long for a community of artists to share with. This opportunity sounds like just that very thing! Thanks for the chance to win a spot! Every appendage I have is crossed at the moment :)

I would love to have the opportunity to win this workshop giveaway in order to complete what I am missing as a newbie artist. I will have the opportunity to learn techniques from ladies around different parts of the planet. It will be an honor to learn their secrets, tips, experience, but the most connect with their souls.
Jaime Barks said…
This looks so fun!!
I am loving 21 Secrets! I started in July, and it was the perfect time for me...I was ready to relax into my art journaling after a long year of juggling. Now I am inspired in a new way, with meditation and gratitude. Thank you for sharing such goodness! ~ kathy

So many deserving people commenting here. I would love to win a free spot as I participate frequently in on-line journalling courses and find them beneficial in so many ways. The line up of teachers looks awesome.
This is how I learn and take care of myself. It is integral to my well being and how I then give out to others. It would be such a treat.
Gillian Pearce said…
I would love to win this class to find out whether art journaling is for me. I've kept written journals for years on and off but no longer do so. They were a reflection of an intense for search for something and the happier I got with my life the less I found I wanted to keep a journal. So I'm wondering . . . would an art journal be different?
Anonymous said…
Would love to win a spot in 21 Secrets class. It has been on my "to do" list for a long time. Winning the spot may be just the motivation I need to get going. And the "live" component is very exciting. Looking forward to seeing you, Tracy, in Stamford in October.
