First Annual Open Studio Garage Art Thing
Saturday, September 25th, 10am - 5pm
in Newcastle, CA

I've participated in the annual Autumn Art Studios Tour for at least ten years, but I decided to try something different this year. I enjoy talking to people about my art, subjects and techniques and I didn't want to lose that opportunity, so I'm having a one-day art show this month.

I don't have an official studio that I can open to the public, so I'll set out my wares in our spacious garage, which is what I've done for past Studios Tours.

Here's what you'll find if you can come out to visit:
- original art - paintings and drawings of various sizes
- earrings - laminated paper featuring my colorful critter art
- signed reproduction prints and photos - matted and ready to frame
- note cards - a huge assortment
- art in progress/demos

And I'll have hourly raffles for 15% off any in-stock items purchased on that day. The first raffle drawing will be at 10:45

Upcoming Art Classes
Watercolor on Yupo or Ink on Scratchboard

I'm teaching a four-hour Watercolor on Yupo Workshop through Placer School for Adults on Saturday, October 9th from 9 am - 1 pm. For more information and a link to register, please visit the Class Info page of my web site.

I'm also planning an Ink on Scratchboard Workshop in October. A group of gals has requested the class so I'm waiting for them to get back to me with a date. But there will be additional spaces available for this workshop - if you're interested, please let me know and I'll get back to you with details.

Photos of Adorable Pit Bull Terrier Pups

These are just too cute not to share! I recently had the pleasure of visiting a litter of pit bull terrier puppies that are being cared for by a rescue facility near my home. I spent an hour and a half photographing, cuddling and kissing the adorable 7-week-old pups. These puppies are going to be wonderful dogs and they couldn't have a better team on their side than Lynn Howe and her assistants. I was very impressed by the way these pups are being raised and socialized. And no, I'm not taking one; I love puppies, but I I also know how much work they are!
