"I wanted to say thank you for an amazing day. You really packed a lot of information into a few hours to a very diverse group and I learned so much . . . with the foundation I had from the last few weeks I feel I was finally able to put it all together. It was such a luxury for me to spend the day painting and having the opportunity to do it at Ghost Ranch was a dream come true!"
