Hi there,
The 3 day creativity retreat planned for May 19th in Hot Springs North Carolina is up on the website. Visit to see some of the details. I am very happy to be able to offer this again. The environment is so invigorating and at the same time gives you the opportunity to be real close to nature. The hiking trail in front of the house is 3 miles long and runs along the gorgeous Laurel River. Flowers and small wildlife abound. Check out this link for more info.

NEXT FALL - A play By Geoffrey Nauffts at Actors Theatre of Charlotte in NC

Starts October 28 and runs till November 19 2011

Terry Thirion - drawings

I had the privilege of attending many of the rehearsals. Sketching the actors and scenes was an amazing process. I watched the actors evolve from stumbling and forgetting their lines to a flawless performance. I sought to capture the mood and emotions of the characters in over 30 drawings that are now on display in the lobby.

Most of the drawings were done with a tree twig about 20 inches long. This simple and natural stick gave me a variety of line thicknesses and its use helps me stay looser than if I just draw with a thin pen. I then added a touch of color with a brush.

When in Hot Springs I visited our friends the Meechos. Such contortionists (the dogs of course)
