WOW!!! What a surprise! Thank you sis!!

How lucky am I? I have a sister who is a graphic designer who decided to surprise me with a book about my art! A real book, and what a BEAUTIFUL book! I can have as many copies as I want! This is really a one in a life time experience and I am so thankful!
Above are some photos of the covers and a few pages.

Nature printmaking (coming to Artfest)

Getting my class proposal for Artfest is always a time I like, since it means I HAVE to create art with no excuse to delay. Many times other life commitments take priority in my schedule, but when it's Artfest time - everything else has to wait! I wish there will be more fun deadlines like this..
So here are some of my class samples for Arfest 2008. The website with all the classes will be up around August 1st, which is very soon. I hope to see some new faces as well as some familiar ones.

The flea market thing

Yes, I admit it: I am addicted big time! To flea markets and garage sales. How can any one not like them? When I need inspiration for my art I am going to the flea market or check some garage sales or if it’s the middle of the week – thrift stores are my target. Every item I see starts a new creative process in my head. This photo is an example of an artwork (an assemblage titled "The India Box") where I used parts and pieces that I found around the area where I live. We have a very rich mixture of cultures and I love the colors and textures that they provide.

This time of year was supposed to be full of resting time but it doesn't seem to be the case for me this time. It feels busier than the rest of year due to remodeling, some workshop teaching and traveling. The positive side of this is that at the end of summer I will really feel very accomplished!
Luckily I manage to fit a few moments of art time in between all that. Otherwise I would have been totally restless.
Art Unraveled (www.artunraveled.com) is the next big time fun for me and many others. I can't wait to immerse myself in great art projects both as an instructor and as an attendee, and meet again some of my art friends.
