at the retreat, i was absolutely blown away by the work of leslie blackford. you must visit her deviant art gallery. you will be blown away as well. she has a website too, but it looks like it's under construction at the moment.
i took some shots of her work space.
isn't her work amazing? here's a gem from her deviant art. "can't see forest 4 the trees."
i had bookmarked this as a favorite inspiration piece, and had completely forgotten about it until i saw it on the deviant art site. now i wish i had told leslie how much i had liked her work even before i met her at the retreat.
