Tis the season for the Cleveland Handmade Market at Tower Press.

Through the end of 2013, a selection of my paintings and collages will be on display at the Hudson Library in its Watson-Ewell-Currin Art Gallery.
Because my house and studio are small, it’s rare to see so much of my work hanging side-by-side. This is, then, really a treat for me. It always surprises me to see similarities between pieces when they are placed next to each other.

About a month ago, my sister and I took a day trip to Geneva on the
Lake, Ohio. For as long as we’ve lived in the area, neither one of us
have been there. The day was cold and windy, unseasonable for August but
typical of this past summer. Read more...
Acrylic paint and india ink on scrapbooking paper.
12 x 12 inches
Matted and framed under glass.
This is a delightful surprise! One more postcard from the swap JUST arrived in my mailbox.
When the swap ended, I knew I was one postcard short – you send in 5, get 5 cards back from participants, plus one from Kat (the organizer). Doing the math, that’s 6 total. I only received 5 (see the pic at http://www.lifeneedsart.com/blog/one-more-postcard/).
I love the postcard swap. Why?
