3 Reasons I know it’s October:
My neighbor’s black cat is looking at me suspiciously, the trees are on fire and we had our annual Book Arts Jam. The JAM is hosted by my group of the BAY AREA BOOK ARTISTS (www.bayareabookartists.org) every year in October. It was a very inspirational day to say the least! I did a demo of the gelatin printmaking technique which was very interesting for many people. I showed (and sold) some of my one of a kind mixed media prints. Many people asked about my mixed media book which I hope will be published in the next few months.
I hope the weather stays nice so I can work in my studio while there is still daylight in the afternoons.

After a very busy summer that included remodeling parts of my house, traveling and teaching I am back at home and at work. It was all great but there wasn’t much time for art or blog posting.
This weekend I attended a great workshop with Laurie Mika, a wonderful artist and a great project. I will post my finished piece when I am done with it.
In the mean time check her website: http://www.mikaarts.com.
A couple of weeks ago I received the “Mixed Media Collage” book by Holly Harrison. This is a great book for any mixed media lover, and I say that not because I happen to have a couple of my art works in it. It is really great because it details techniques and at the same time it is also an eye candy.
Last but not least – here are a couple of photos of my recent finds from different sales: vintage lace and clock parts. Can it get any better than that?
