Spending a month in Bali this past August was a gift of time to myself. I was to spend a whole month relaxing, exploring, slowing down and most importantly painting and creating with a group of beautiful women on the Sacred marks retreat with my wonderful friend Tracy Verdugo.
I wanted to go into this new piece of artwork with a focus on painting one of the statues that inspired me near where we were staying.
On the Sunday after our first session of “Sacred Marks”, we were enjoying our wonderful breakfast by the pool and saying our last goodbyes. All of a sudden, we heard the loud noises of cars, motorcycles and people cheering as they passed our entrance way along the road. You could see big structures moving along and giant flags waving down the road.
