Mt Dora Florida! wow~

I have had a most wonderful weekend in Mt Dora Florida; my travels have taken me beyond the Orlando magic to this delightful town just north. With a group of 18 wonderful women, and one dynamic birthday-girl venue host-we've had a most inspired, waxy and enlived two days. Sleep has been optional once again. :) I am floored, simply beyond words, how God puts me to work! And how doing his will feeds my mind, body and soul. It's been amazing...and I am now off to North Carolina to feed on more goodness! (Oh! Am I supposed to be bringing the meal?! :) always full by always filling others; it's so good...Thank you Mt Dora! in love. trish.
Workshop put on by Heather Earnest with Foxie Artist Productions :)
we had competition for the space :) an award ceremony for the largest fish took place Saturday afternoon!

The main building where we got waxy all weekend! Lakeside Inn, Mt Dora, FL

woops! How did this somewhat neat place get in here?! :)


  1. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for a delightful learning experience, Trish! I came away from your Encaustic Workshop with more ideas than I can write down :) You are a fantastic, patient teacher with a great passion to share what you love to do. I gleaned more that I could have hoped in a 2-day session and am very thankful for all the props and samples and techniques you encouraged us to try. I give your workshop an unreserved 5 stars (on a 4-star scale)!


    1. I am still floating in the clouds from the wonderful 2 day workshop you taught in Mount Dora. I have been waiting for years to take one of your workshops, a dream come true! Let's just say, you did not disappoint :) Your warmth, enthusiasm and willingness to share all your "tricks of the trade" were most appreciated. I loved being able to immerse myself in wax for 2 whole days, learn new techniques, try out new tools, and see what creative ideas others were coming up with. Absolute heaven! I hope to make it to one of your camps out west one of these days. In the meantime, god bless you on your journey!


    2. ginger~THANK YOU! Way too generous but I'll take it and pass it on to the one who deserves the praise :) I tried to email from the business card you included with the card/heart but it came back undeliverable!!! :(
      annette~thank you toooooooo! I wanted to stay and immerse ourselves for another 2 days...

  2. This artwork is really nice, I love the beauty & mess! Mixed media is my thing too.
