Day 714: A 5 Star Outing!

acrylic, tissue & junk mail collage

Time for Eastside's monthly art sojourn.
Today it was a 5 star retreat at ...
Big Canyon Country Club in Newport Beach.

Just minutes from Fashion Island, 
tucked behind a forrest of trees ...
is a well-hidden, rarely seen paradise on earth.

Each Eastside artist teaches their talent ...

Our hostess Jody, a master seamstress and artist,
invited us for a day of luxury ...
sewing, making pillows and creating.

We printed our selected images on prepared canvas ...
and stitched the seams ...
