Memories of painting here last year…

Our heartfelt thanks to Kyla Wahlstrom, who was our guest on Sandra Strohschein’s wonderful watercolour painting week here this time last year. Kyla has sent us lots of pictures remembering her time with us and we made them into one of those short, fun Facebook slideshows, which you can see by clicking here.

Kyla writes: “It is hard to believe that a year has passed that we began our wonderful painting journey together. For me, it was a magical week of learning and of finding new friendships that continue to forever shape my memories of our time together.”

“Much has happened to all of us in the past year–and I am hoping that each of you has stayed safe and well as the pandemic ensues. Turbulent times are upon us in Minneapolis and the U.S. as you have likely seen on the news, but we are all now hoping for healing and progress for greater justice and equity for all.

“Finding time and energy to paint has been difficult, and yet is a priority, as I find it to be the best way to soothe my heart and mind. I hope you all have continued to discover the healing power of creating something beautiful as life unfolds before us….

“I reflect on how lucky we all were to “end up together” on our Italian journey! It was a perfect week — for discovering the uniqueness of each one of us, to learn so much from Sandra, and to experience the unequalled hospitality of Bill and Lois, Karsten, and the lovely fellows who drove us all around. It could not have been more perfect!”

Thank you for the pictures, Kyla and for those kind words. We hope to be running our creative courses at the Watermill again from this August onwards. And we have a full programme for 2021. You can find more about everything by clicking here.
