And this just in from Lynne Perrella:
I had a burst of creative energy when I got back from giving a workshop at Artfest this year, and I developed a new series of collages, titled
"Faces & Folly". At first, having a "master plan" for the series did not seem important -- you know how it is: you just want to follow the path
of the ideas and see what happens -- but eventually I decided to open up my own online Etsy shop and offer them for sale. Better yet, I worked
with my amazing web designer, Michelle Ward, to create a slide show that appears on my website.
When you have time, please stop by my site and take a look. Information about the slide show and the Etsy shop is right on the home page.
Just click on the links, and you'll be right there.
If you wish, please pass this announcement along to anyone who might enjoy seeing my new work.
And, by the way, my latest book, "Art-Making & Studio Spaces" will be published by Rockport/Quarry in January 2010 and can be pre-ordered
