Well, this is a new process for me.  It has always been a battle for me to decide to work on art and design projects or just write about it.  For some reason, there is seldom time to do both.  However, I will endeavor to write something—anything—to get me started.

Yesterday, I presented a very successful workshop on my PASSION FOR PATTERN art work.  This was the lesson written up and published in School Arts Magazine in January. When it arrived, I almost screamed with delight as the publishers had used one of my images for the cover.  Talk about excitement.  Then, yesterday, one of the women got so excited because she had that issue of the magazine and had shown her students the cover.  She didn’t put my workshop together with the article until I showed them my copy of the magazine.  She just kept babbling about how excited the students would be when she told them she met the author.  My day was made.  This is the third time I have done this presentation and it is always so well received.

Now, as you know, I am always sharing new finds with people or turning them on to some of my favorite destinations.  If you have not yet seen my sister’s blog from Istanbul, you are in for a treat.  Go to tricivenola.wordpress.com.  Not only does she talk about her drawing process, she shows each days work.  Part art lesson, part travelog, part history, she puts it all in and it reads like a novel.  Even my brother, Richard, a professional writer says he wishes his writing was as superb as Trici’s.  Can you tell I am very proud of both of their abilities and passions?

Am presently working on two new assemblage pieces so look for new updates as they progress.  Run, Rabbit, Run is in the beginning stages of construction.  REAL TO REEL is still in the incubation stage but I know what it will look like and how it will work—it is interactive—but I am trying to figure out construction problems.

Until later—
