Watch for Interview # 15--it's Maria Hodkins!
I'm fortunate enough to have gotten to go out sketching with Maria on a number of occasions, and it's always a pleasure. We usually have the evening to share lives, inspirations, food, and even paint--it's a ball! Writer, artist, naturalist, journal-keeper, teacher, gourmet cook and so much more...you'll love Maria even more than you did in the book!
The image above was one of the first of her journal pages I ever saw...it looked as if you could lift the ripe peach right off the page and take a sweet, juicy bite!
Winter, summer, all year 'round, she records her life in Colorado with curiosity and love, wrapping her images with text that makes you want to sit and read every word...
You may have seen our post about her recent classes...you can find all the information in our Classes and Workshops tab at the top of this page, or click this link to go directly there to see the types of things Maria teaches. (By the time Interview #15 is up, we'll likely have MORE information on classes, because she keeps very busy with travel, work, teaching and family.)
I'd love to show you more art, but at the moment Blogger's being stubborn! Soooo...don't miss Maria's Flickr sets at http://www.flickr.com/photos/windwordwriter/ and watch for our interview, upcoming. I guarantee it will be worth the wait.
