I'm always glad to promote a fellow artist, and its especially fun if she is a fellow Texan artist. And I was especially tickled to promote this new book by, Shona Cole, since I have a small part in it!
Shona's book, called The Artistic Mother is about finding or simply making time to create with little ones. And even better, letting the little's inspire your artistic endeavors as well. And I found that it is not just for Mom's, but for anyone that can't devote 24/7 to art, but needs to carve out snippets here and there. I know for me, that has been an issue of late. And there are lots of great projects here that are adaptable for those (like myself) who don't have kidlets, but are always looking for another creative endeavor.
The book features some beautiful photo's, great projects and highlights other artist's (Susan Tuttle, and Misty Mawn to name a few) as well.
As for me, I'm on page 22.
That artwork was actually for a round robin that Mendy started and that I was very honored to be a part of. I had posted snippets here. But in looking for photo's for this post, realized that I must have edited them all down. Booger. Oh well, when my book gets returned from the publisher, I'll show you some more pics. It was a fun project and a great collaboration and all of the pages were simply amazing.
And oh joy, we have more snow headed our way. Twice in one month...wow. In Texas. Insert your own global warming statement here.
Happy (almost) Monday.
