Last Tuesday seemed to be a watermark in our sessions. Not only did we have a record number of participants, with a consistently high number of returning attendees but also the sharing has become a chance to connect and really plunge in and get your vulnerability out of the way.
We’re in lockdown, nothing can really hurt us.
It’s been great for me to get to know everyone more and more and become familiar with their styles and their ways of working. Will Rajie’s artwork continue to surprise me? Watching Molly’s work grow is always a gift for me. And I’m doing nothing but provide the safe space for us to come together and practice our craft in a focussed and calm manner. And that is important for me. Too much of this period has been anxiety-making. Having this space is important for me. And, from what you’re telling me, important for you – even if it’s just to have a focus, a marker for your week.
The other thing that happened, the week before, actually, was that one of our regular American artists, Elise, had drawn an impression of us. I thought I’d share it with you below.
