On Artsnark's blog, along with a poignant piece of art, I saw more houses, noticed they were done by a fabulous mixed media artist who loves right here in the same town - can't believe I've never met her. So, naturally, I visited her blog, P is for Paper and left a comment there too. She's included a tutorial along with photos of her contribution to the Victorian Brush Fire Appeal shop on Etsy, which will be open through March.
My friend Karin posts daily journal entries, each one looks like it couldn't possibly have been done in a day; she has been a great pal and encouraged me to get involved in the Art House Coop, a group responsible for creating massive art projects that connect artists across the country. I've signed on for the Five Canvas project, which, after being on display at Atlanta airport, will be condensed and published in a book. How cool is that!?
I'm not sure exactly how I ended up on the Farm Chicks blog, but certainly am glad I did! I grabbed the photo at the top of this post from their site and left comment #89 (!) and they aren't even revealing the prize! After spending a few minutes there I decided I definitely want to be a Farm Chick:
...a girl who sees the world through rose-colored glasses. She loves her family. She laughs a lot. She's farmgirl meets Fifth Avenue. And with a little junk she'll change the world.
Definitely my kind of woman! Hop on over and see for yourself!
