There has been more than a slight problem in moving over 400 miles away from this treasured spot. I joke about being transplanted in Northern California, or rather grafted here in the wine country, but my heart cries out for the beach. Well meaning Northern California friends suggest beaches up here- but they just don't understand. The blue is an entirely different shade. The surf is rough and the wind!
So where am I to go when I can't manage the eight hour drive back? It took me 17 years- seriously- but I finally found a spot that fills the void; a spot where I am immediately transported to Bliss... Who would have ever thought it would be in the middle of a garden and Vineyard? Anyone who knows me, knows that the only green on my thumb is paint! Thankfully I don't have to take care of it- just relax in it and pull out my watercolors or pastels or... Kim's Garden is my Bliss... my welcome spot... my retreat.
If you want to share in this truly special place, consider attending my art retreat. There are still some spots available. I would so love to spend the weekend, paint, laugh, and share my bliss!
