One Brush....Salon 2011 reconnects those in love with decorative painting

When I think of Salon I can’t help but get a smile on my face and feel a great sense of joy. We get together for one week a year to share our love of decorative painting. For me, Salon is just as much about the camaraderie as it is about painting. As the time for Salon draws near, I find myself feeling like a child who awaits seeing her best friend after a long time apart.  
During the four days we have many opportunities to get to know each other both professionally and personally. Whether it is at a coffee break after a lecture or sharing a meal and wine in the evening. It is always an honor to hear the stories of how someone became a painter and their journey to being a part of Salon. The intimate setting that Salon offers creates a real depth and vivid color to our mutual bond. Although our painting styles may differ we have a connection to each other nonetheless. Strong friendships develop that even the seas which separate us cannot divide. We exchange ideas about painting and philosophies on life.  
Our time together goes by fast: days filled with painting and lectures and night’s dinners, drinks and jam sessions until the wee hours of the morning. Yes, that’s right I said Jam sessions. Many of our members are musicians as well and there is always something exciting going on. It all happens in the flash of an eye and the week is over.  
We started out as strangers and through this journey with love and adoration we become family. The individual fibers of our lives become “One Brush”.  
In the passing months from one Salon to the next I long to be with them…
