As far as her workshops go, it seemed like she was always teaching in some faraway place like Bali, Mexico or Australia. Places I just can't get to right now due to finances. I had almost given up on painting with her when an email from her said she was teaching an e-course. I was super super thrilled and instantly registered and paid with paypal. The minute after I did that I thought I'd just browse through her in-person workshops and even said to myself, "not Wisconsin." As I scrolled down the list I saw Valley Ridge Art Studio in Muscoda, Wisconsin. My heart skipped a beat I think. I started shaking. What!!?? I quickly emailed her and asked if I could cancel the e-course because I would so rather paint with her in person. Not even thinking I'd hear back from her. Well, she replied within five minutes and took care of it. The rest is history. I don't want to go on about every single step of this journey of signing up for her workshop, but this Saturday, I registered and I am going to paint with and learn from Flora Bowley herself, in person. My husband said he's never seen me so excited. Believe me I was flying all morning after getting into the workshop. I even went nuts cleaning our bedroom and bathroom because I was in such a great mood, full of energy.
