The current issue of Somerset Studio has arrived. If you've been following me for a long time you'll be familiar with the subject of my article - collecting dirt, which evolved from collecting sand. See the magazine for the full story. They left out the final photo of a tip I offer of how to secure a cork on a bottle to keep the contents safe, so I've included it here. Thank you to everyone who wrote me about the previous article highlighting Sam's new venture. I really appreciate hearing from you and that you took the time to reach out and share your enthusiasm. We've had a lot of orders recently so I'm going to be refilling the shop this weekend.
Oh my...it's been a while since I blogged. A sign that's it has been a busy and fun summer! Can't believe it's September already. Fallon will be starting at Rutgers next week. I love the beginning of a school year, even it if doesn't have a direct impact on my personal daily life anymore (packing lunches, driving carpool, monitoring homework....) However, I always regard this time period as a chance to start anew. Three quarters of 2016 is over but we still can view this month as returning students do, with sharpened pencils and fresh perspective. Shake off unfinished projects, clear off the table, open your mind, and begin learning something new. Change of season, change of routine. That's what September means to me - although I do try to hang on to the last pleasures of summer a little longer.
My next two classes will be at Pratt in NYC. See my WORKSHOPS page for the particulars. Hope you'll come!!
I had two terrific classes at The Ink Pad last month. It's always such a treat to see how the artists interpret the projects. I always leave feeling so energized and motivated when I see the magic of creativity at work. Thanks for joining me!
I'm off to float around the pool again while catching up on my reading. Have a great holiday weekend!
