The Fine Art of Noticing

This much awaited book is gaining traction and will soon be offered to the public in several locations around the Upstate. By the end of March it will be available at Gage's in Lewis Plaza and the Art & Light Gallery in the Flatiron Building in the arts district of Pendleton St. Stay tuned for more locations!

If any of you know me personally, you will know that many times I cannot leave well enough alone. When a creative surge hits, I simply must do something colorful and usually involving glue or paint, and perhaps scissors. When I finished my first little book, I wanted to mail it to a friend and discovered that though it was a wonderful size and interesting shape, it would not fit in a conventional envelope. Oh my! So, I bought a larger envelope and cut and pasted and painted and stamped, even glued on a fancy Belgium stamp and produced an envelope that would work (with extra postage). This is just a sample of the custom envelopes that would so make the recipient smile!

Got Milk?

I just had to take this photo on a recent snowy day as I waited for a friend to fill up the gas tank at a local gas station. The snow was not sticking, but the sky was filled with huge snowflakes whisping through the air. When I saw this truck and the wonderful "cow" picture, I just knew it had to be recorded!
