Usually I would prefer a direct teaching with Talia, but these days as we are Corona isolated, there is nothing like the simplicity of painting with Talia's instructions. To dive into the ink and colour, is the best anti-Corona medicine. Especially when painting purple-lilac Wisteria, with its healing properties, connecting me to a better World. Having sent my practice to Talia, her personal responses are ever so encouraging and inspiring. Highly recommended.
