Book Progress

My studio for 5 days...
I have been pretty quiet for a few months as I am continuing to work on my book. I just retured from the photoshoot in Cincinnati, Ohio. I had no idea how involved writing a book would be. There are so many people that become a part of making it happen, from my editor Beth Erikson to the folks that will try to get Barnes and Noble to carry it and a ton of creative people in between. Everyone I met from F+W was so nice, professional and supportive, which made it all worth the stress.
Making art, knowing that you will only have 5 days to finish all the photos, is pretty stressful. Creativity on demand!
On the last day we filmed a short tutorial on one of my exercises. I was super nervous, but once I started teaching, I forgot about the camera. I think I did ok....we will see when I view the video!
My editor Beth and me before the video....

Here are some sneaky peeks at some of the artwork I made during my week stay....



Time to get back to work...I have text to write and can not wait to be painting again...

  1. A book, how exciting for you! You are an awesome teacher so I am very happy for you. I saw the 3 day class at Art is You CT, wish you were doing that class in Petaluma-I would take it in a flash. Hopefully you will be teaching on the west coast sometime soon.
