published! and hanging :)

it came in the mail..... and there i am.... in the palais d' art section! click on the image below for more info on pasticcio quartz.besides being my first time published, i am especially excited because one of the first books on mixed media i purchased was angela cartwright's mixed emulsions. i became aware of sarah fishburn's work through that book, alphabetica and the complete guide to altered imagery. these two inspired me to try new things & opened up a whole world of ideas, so it's very cool to be selected for their zine.

in other news- we got the show hung last night and it looks fabulous! the space and the art are both great. i will get better photos to share- set up was, as always, a bit hectic- especially when trying to get everyone else situated too. fortunately mom & dad were there to help. it was so nice to have some new pieces to hang, and things seem to hang well together.

and now..... finishing up a few price tags, packing the hubcap up to mail back, take mom & dad to the airport later and a full day of day job work. no studio time, but maybe some art play this evening....
