What's the Word?

An Autumnal Hello to All of You!

Here are a few things going on in and around Studio 19 at LibertyTown Arts Workshop:

My Time of Day, collage and acrylic, 6 x 6 x 1 cradled wooden panel

I'm painting again--small works for two upcoming shows in the main gallery. In November, the popular exhibit of works no larger than 6" x 6" x 6" returns.

In December, LibertyTown artists will be showing small works on a cash and carry basis. Usually, artwork that you purchase must stay in the gallery until the end of the exhibit--not so for the December show. These are great opportunities to pick up that special piece of artwork for holiday giving.

Fun new things that are now available in my shop: sassy paper collage earrings decorated with beads and bling made by Lynette Reed and me. See the photo below for a sampling.



I have collected more cool found vintage illustrations and paper into packets ready for you to put them to your own artistic use. There's just too much amazing ephemera for me to use by myself!
 
Star Book kits make a charming small gift or stocking stuffer for that creative person in your life who likes a project. Each kit has unique cover papers and can be completely opened to become a star ornament, as well as a place to write the secrets of your heart.
