been enjoying my book on doodling.
(see previous post a few days ago).
now i have been on the look out for things to doodle on, like white tshirts, white canvas shoes, hats, aprons, backpacks, etc.
i have not mentioned my new commercial website lately because there has been a slight hitch - that would be me---- i have to hand enter every single thing we will carry onto the web page. it is a huge process, but worth it.
other things i haven't mentioned lately due to another but different, glitch is the san diego regional art magazine called Nmagazine. there has been an uprising and a new distribution of power and some regrouping....i doubt the mag will come out before the end of the year now. this slow-up has nothing at all to do with me----instead it is due to people with more powerthan me.
i can't be responsible for every delay.....really, come on now.
meanwhile, the workshop in Umbria (near Tuscany) Italy is still on calendar. october 6-12, 2008 - its cheaper now. i will be in italy the entire month of october to visit family in Gubbio, Umbria, in case you are planing on coming too. Let's get together. i have a nice retreat lined up for cheap in Gubbio (a beautiful, beautiful place), and i know many locals who would love to conduct classes in ceramics and plein air painting, as well as paper arts and wool. of course i will teach you everything i know about the paintover technique and collage. there will be a great opportunity to do watercolor and ink journals. i can also lead you to wonderful, choice shopping in out of the way little city nooks for art and artists supplies. places you would not read out of a tour guided book.
flights are going down in price and ---- you will have more spending power with the dollar as the euro is getting very weak. also workshops are a tax write-off if you are a professional artist. the retreat is "couples" friendly as i feel no one likes to travel to italy alone. do they? if you are interested in details, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org time is running out.
