Mexico Workshop with Jose Villa

Can you say AMAZING???!!!

I've been waiting all year for Jose's Workshop  which was held at Hacienda El Carmen in Jalisco, Mexico.  I met some great people from all over and will forever keep their friendships close.  There is so much talent out there!  Jose was inspirational to say the least and so genuine :)  Cameron Ingalls and Karina Puenta also led us during the workshop and what incredible artists they are!  Joel Serrato, Gene Higa, Ann Hamilton were all there with us too, supporting, sharing and being so gracious with their time and I'm so glad we spent this week together, thanks for everything and all the great instruction and wisdom you have passed to us.   I have been reborn! And oohhhh, that mexican light!  It was so incredibly beautiful and I'll never forget it.
Special hollas to our modelos y modelas from Citro Modelos ~ Martin, Danny, Valeria and Miiriam and to Mar Romero who kept them looking hot! 

I'm so sad it's over but I know I'll see you all at WPPI and I can't wait  :)
