I just returned from the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music & Love at El Cosmico in Marfa, TX where I hosted a workshop. Participants drew with charcoal, painted with sumi ink and block printed on fabric, making wonderful new work. We held the workshop outdoors, in a gravel driveway facing the wide horizon of distant mountains. Opening and closing with a meditation, I had participants relax and expand into a space of appreciation of all the work they would make. The mountains provided abundant inspiration as we sipped kava root chai made by Austin herbalist, Melani Jenkins.
