That's me tooting my horn about having my painting featured on the cover of this month's Skirt Magazine. Wish we could get it here on the west coast; it's a great magazine with articles of interest to all women and filled with beautiful art, photography and well written articles. I'm honored!
This is how I spent the weekend; creating this mixed -media book for a class proposal. I'll just show a few pages here and tell you that it's the most fun I've had in months and lets me know how much I've missed my good friend acrylic while I've been over romancing the wax. The colors just lift me and fill me; what a joy to work in such a rewarding medium.
I wish my friends could all fit in my studio and that we could play together. Unfortunately I'm such a slob that even I don't fit in my studio. I need to have all my scraps out at once to find what I want; I suspect many of you are the same.
This is a small portion of the book but I'm busting to share. And (psssst, lean closer) I'm teaching 2 classes again at Artfest next April. The schedule goes up August 1st and I'll remind you again around that time. I'm not going to be teaching as much next year (I swamped myself this year thinking that I might run out of time). I want to take each experience more slowly now and savor the friendships and time at home with my good man while we have it.
Meanwhile, 4th of July looms as a joyful time for families and friends. I have a houseguest coming to go junking with and to enjoy in the studio; I hope you make it a pleasant day wherever you are; east, north, south or west. We are all family.
