Thank you, Seth

Seth Apter/The Altered Page deserves an award for promoting artists and the arts, also for his art, workshops and art books! Thank you Seth for including me in your Blog today. Check out his Blog from the link below.

As long as I'm here, I thought I'd add one more photo of Ralph's house from the outside with "landscape". More to be posted later. Ralph and other South Bisbee homes and scapes. In the meantime, I'm working on an altered book for Nov. 3 Art Auction sponsored by the Friends of the Copper Queen Library, a fundraiser to benefit the library.

Red Shoes

I did this piece last week for our Sunday D&D group. Assignment: Feet. I handheld the camera and made a photo of my feet, printed on watercolor paper and mounted on a birch panel. Then worked in wax, oil sticks and pastels. I'm working on another one (feet) and two hands pieces for this week's assignment (hands). These may be put on hold though as I'm working on an altered book for the Altered Book Art Auction to Benefit the Copper Queen Library that takes place on Nov. 3. Also have been doing art postcards for D&D that we have mailed to each other. We'll be showing those at the Silver King Hotel on Nov. 4. Busy, busy!
