My Trip to Tustin, California

Posted on

Processed with VSCO with  presetLast week of October I went to visit my fried Kara Stracham Bullock at her studio in Tustin California to teach a workshop Soulful Portraits. The whole trip was a wonderful experience, the weather was beautiful and Kara’s studio is awesome and still coming together. It is nestled in a beautiful part of town with lots of quaint restaurants to visit. Attached to her studio is a very relaxing meditative rest area filled with artifacts and decorated stones. It’s a perfect place to gather and reminisce.

Originally I was going to work on just one project, because I thought it would give us plenty to do, but as I was open for any direction in the work flow, my students asked for change of pace, and were able to work on two or three project, and everyone was able to finish something, or at least get most of one painting finished. I realized that working on one piece only and direct too much attention to it might actually turn out to be more tiresome. I think we all had very productive three days.

At the end of my stay I was able to take few days to cruise around the area to Newport Beach, Laguna beach and San Clemente. I loved taking the drive around the coast. It was very picturesque.


Before my return, I had few hours to spend at Kara’s Studious, and so I decided to start my one page journal that I wanted to create for some time now. It’s amazing how efficient I can be when all the supplies and space are available right there to do nothing else, but create.  After I put my journal together, I was able to take it with me on a plane and started adding to it right away.

This has been a wonderful trip and I am so grateful to have been part of it. I am looking forward to my next journey ❤
