I was invited to teach at An Artful Journey Feb 23 - 27 2012. This retreat is held at the Presentation Center in the redwoods of Los Gatos, Ca. I will be teaching a three day Santos class. It will be absolutely fantastic. The reason I can say that is because we will not only be making one Santos on a wooden frame but we will also be constructing an assemblage Santos out of wonderful antique and other found objects. The students will be bringing home 2 very different but beautiful pieces. I started to collect bits and pieces today that will go into a bin for the retreat. Yahoo an excuse to collect more stuff! Here are some shots of what I found today, these will be bodies or wings or ?
This will be a body of an assemblage Santos, can you see it?

I leave for a weeklong trip to Mexico on Sat and you can bet I will be looking for that rare find to bring to class. Cross your fingers I hope to find something great.
