I was in Portland for about a week. I could have stayed indefinitely. After driving across the country it felt good to relax the rigorous event and travel schedule that I had kept up. My parents met me in Portland from Massachusetts to check out the city I keep raving about. We were there for the 4th of July and enjoyed the full moon and fireworks display. I caught up on work a little too.
On Friday events began for the World Domination Summit. I don't think I will have time to write a whole post about the summit because I am getting quite behind but maybe. For now I will say that it was a major dose of positive reinforcement, an inspiring fire of information, and a charge to change the world. And I met the most freakin' amazing people on the planet! (And did you hear about the $100 investment made to each of us?)
The Portland JCT event was Monday night after the weekend of WDS. The event was in TaborSpace, a fantastic community space in a gorgeous Presbyterian church. A mix of Portland friends, WDS attendees and EncaustiCamp attendees were there. (EncaustiCamp started the next day. I was one of the teachers.) It was a great group and our biggest event at that point.
Linda Womack was there and did an encaustic monoprinting demonstration. Attendees really enjoyed trying the simple printing with wax. Judy Wise was also there hanging out and sharing her love for creativity. I also finally got to meet my online friend Jenny Wentworth (who is raising money to go paint in Italy).
Another great event in an another great city!
