It Smells Like Art Again

As you may have noticed, I've been taking a small break from blogland. The school year is about to wrap up and it seems like every day I've got some sort of concert to attend, party to plan, play-off game to watch, or check to write. My brain has been taxed. The studio has been collecting dust.

But enough of that... I'm back down here, cracking the paints open, spraying inks, making messes. As my son said one day when he came down here, "it smells like art in here" again.

After an hour or so of painting this morning, I opened up my email and was so delighted to see a wonderful blog post by Cate Prato with Cloth Paper Scissors featuring one of my techniques and a plug for my second video workshop with Cloth Paper Scissors. This one is called Collage in the Round and features wire and rice-paper structure techniques.

I can't say enough good things about the wonderful folks over at Cloth Paper Scissors. From my first challenge entry until now, every contact has been so warm, friendly, and supportive. If you are interested in having your work published, give Cloth Paper Scissors a try. If you have questions or want advice, feel free to shoot me an email or leave a comment here. I'd love to share any of my experiences with you.

Now off to get artsy. Hope your day is filled with happy, colorful messes!


  1. Congratulations on this wonderful showcasing of your art and knowledge. I got the email this morning from CPS with your workshop advertised. Looks great!

  2. Congrats on the new DVD! I've recently been published in QA (surprising to me) and I would say the same about them.

  3. Congratulations!!! CPS is really promoting your new dvd. That's great! I'm so excited for you! It goes to show that talent and hard work does pay off.

  4. Jenny! Congratulations on such an accomplishment! Kudos to you!
