Holiday Mini Painting Show!

Remember that time I took your photos and turned them into a bunch of mini paintings, and then we all had a big old party to celebrate?! Well its that time of year again!!

Submitted photos will be selected at random and turned into tiny masterpieces painted daily by yours truly. Images of the finished paintings will be shown here and on intsagram (@nicolebourgea). The only rule is that you have to have been the person to have taken the photo (copyright, blah, blah).

At our studio party (Friday, Dec 2) you'll have a chance to buy your painting, snag someone else's or just show up for the champagne! Definitely want your painting, but live out of town, etc? Just shoot me an email (nicolebourgea@gmail.com) to reserve your little work of art.

Mark your calendars and start sending your photos to nicolebourgea@gmail.com so we can get this party started!

Mindfulness and Art Workshop

During this busy season, many of us find ourselves frazzled and challenged to stay grounded and peaceful. Mindfulness is a state of being in which you pause and pay attention. This workshop (lead by an artist husband and yogi wife) introduces ways to facilitate the mindful state we strive for through tools such as movement, breath work and watercolor.

Please bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing that you can move in.

This workshop is free. First come, first served. WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU :)
