Patti Edmon Altered Attic: Take a Look!

Take a Look!

My bff (remember Frog & Toad?) Karen, recently finished a Biographia project, compiling, distilling, translating an amazing woman's life journey into gorgeous, handmade books. Karen is a master at listening, something we could all use a lesson or two in, and her writing is, well, visit her blog and you'll see.  If there are people who have at least one of everything they need, I can assure you this is the kind of gift that opens itself for generations to come. 

Another childhood friend, Carol VanZandt, whose work is in collections around the world, creates stunning works that are unlike anything I've imagined. In Boston and then while living in Japan, she studied with masters of the art of Japanese Calligraphy; I find that meditating on her images, even tiny and on screen, charges the creative neurons.

My friend Karin, Beyond Words, posted yesterday one of the most amazing journal pages on pain and its relationship to spirit and body. Her recent surgery and lingering recovery are evident in the raw, stark beauty that she has captured.

As for me? Ornaments, ornaments, ornaments.... The Street Scene open house is Saturday, with a Meet the Featured Artists' event from 6 - 9. Notice I didn't say crafters:) Wish me luck!
