Book Review

I just noticed that when you go to amazon.com to find my book, "A Celebration of Light" that it is now the soft cover and the book reviews were not carried over from the hard cover so it has none! I would really appreciate it if those of you who have read it and like it would please give a review to rank my book otherwise it is not going to come up well in a search. Thanks so much!

News Paper article

This came out in the local paper today about what the artists are doing to help clean birds in the Gulf...Thought you would like to see the article! To be correct though, Paul Jackson has led this from the beginning and is still working on it...misquotes happen all the time...but I did not intend for this to appear like I have been working on it...just did a painting is all...all the credit goes to Paul Jackson.  http://www.bemidjipioneer.com/event/article/id/100021718/group/News/ http://www.bemidjipioneer.com/event/article/id/100021718/group/News/

Where Has Summer Gone!?!

I see how few posts I have made and wonder where did the summer go? But I also look forward to fall because that is when things will slow here and I can begin the drawings for painting this winter. I have so many in my head I am not sure where to begin! This is the first time I have not painted for an entire summer...painted for me I mean. I have done demos and step by steps for demos but nothing creative for me...I know I need to do that so I will return home the second week of October and I will draw until I have several ready to go and plunge in with gusto!!! My soul needs it for sure. I enjoy teaching but it leaves no time for me to paint for me...and that is not really so good I fear...but for now that is how it is and I am glad to have 2 weeks at home right now before Calgary...it will the the longest I have been home all summer...I need it to refuel as I am feeling very run down and tired...so anyway...I hope to begin posting more regular once life slows and I find my brains that I must have packed in a spare suitcase! ha!
I have the heron I designed for the tshirts for the Gulf and was informed last week that it is still the top selling design. For those of you unfamiliar with this, artists from around the world did images that were placed on tshirts etc for sale and 100% of the profits go to cleaning birds in the Gulf. To date we have earned over $6000 for this project! If you want to see my work and the others you can go here... http://www.zazzle.com/artvsoilspill/gifts?cg=196107112234583855
