December 4 - 10, 2023
I had the incredible opportunity to immerse myself in a world of art and camaraderie on the picturesque Anna Maria Island, FL. Surrounded by talented painters Cory Wright, Manon Sander and Eli Cedrone and cherished friends, the experience was nothing short of magical. The vibrant atmosphere was filled with soulful and casual art conversations, creating a perfect backdrop for creativity.
Our days were spent not only exploring the realms of art but also indulging in the local culture. From savoring delectable dishes to painting against the breathtaking backdrop of the beach, every moment was a celebration of artistic expression and friendship. Cory, generously shared her favorite spots, adding an extra layer of warmth to our adventure.
Venturing beyond the beach, we delved into the history of the local areas, discovering hidden gems. Basking in the warm glow of the sun, we endeavored to capture the ever-changing waves, the graceful dance of flocks of birds, and life of the fishing village. Each stroke of the brush seemed to encapsulate the essence of the moment, freezing time in a canvas of memories.
The journey was not just about painting; it was a holistic experience of embracing the beauty around us, both in art and in life, friendship, and the joy of creative expression.
