There is something magical about India. . .
Many years have passed since my first amazing experience of India,
a trip where I lingered only in the north.
This time I was invited to be "artist in residence" at Aashyana
Lakhanpal, a beautiful and intimate resort in Candolim Goa. We
were collected right after landing, a VERY comforting aspect after
hours of flights and airports. . . the narrow roads eventually leading
to the magical calm of Aashyana.
The staff genuinely sweet and kind - the host, Ajai Lakhanpal,
generous and thoughtful, made us all feel special. Lovely gardens
and accommodations, serene swimming pool, private beach
. . delicious and beautiful food served everyday. . .everything
provided to allow the creative spirit breathe.
There is a certain kind of mist and hazy beauty to this area, with the
quiet hush of the not so distant waves. It swept me in and I plan on
going back - next year the dates are already chosen:
January 6 - 16th, 2018
I will be leading a creative workshop of painting, sculpture,
and assemblage. Twelve lucky people will have the opportunity to
immerse themselves in this wonderland. It could be YOU.
Let me know!
More details soon forthcoming. . .
