Last Stop: Mango Studio


Welcome to my blog hop. Everyday from April 2nd through April 12th I will link to a different blog as part of my celebration of the release of my book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed. There will be book reviews, personal thoughts, and giveaways. And every blogger along the way will become part of the book, as they will also post their own responses to their choice of survey questions from the book. You too can be part of The Pulse by responding to my open call for art!

And on each day of the blog hop, I will also be sharing something extra. And today is an extra you will not want to pass by!


-----------------------------

For the 11th and final day of this blog hop, we visit Stephanie Hilvitz. A trip to Steph's blog, Mango Studio, is like an explosion of color and creativity. And I am happy to say that I will be meeting Steph in person later this month when my book tour takes me to Colorado. I know that she will be every bit as colorful in person as her blog and beautiful art. Steph has been a contributor to my online version of The Pulse and we are frequent visitors to each other's blogs. Make sure you get off at the last stop on this tour and see what Steph has to say about The Pulse of Mixed Media.

-----------------------------

After you visit Steph, head on over to Seek Your Course. If you are not already familiar with this site, you are in for a special treat. Seek Your Course is overflowing with information about art workshops and instructors. But there is so much more to find there too. And today on their blog, you can read an interview that Jess, the amazing visionary behind the site, conducted with me. There is a review of The Pulse of Mixed Media as well.

Wow! Color, color, and more color! Ms. Hilvitz certainly welcomes, and celebrates Spring with her many photographs of tulips, blossoming trees, etc., and in her vibrant paintings of flowers, in posts on Mango Studio. I was particularly taken with her March 29 post called "A Tale of Pozos," and her photographs, and altered photographs, of the doorway in the 'ghost town school', there. She describes, and shows, the lovely patinas of the surfaces of this old building in her 'straight' photographs, and then shows us some of her own use of patina, in the way in which she has applied, and then scraped off, paint in her altered photographs: these deliciously inviting, and texturally rich, lovely images that shehas created! Thanks for a wonderful 11 days, Seth. They have been both informational, and inspiring!

I am here to tell you that Steph and her World is even MORE Beautiful and Amazing in Real Life. I remember the first time that I walked through her home. I think that I passed out. Her art is a genuine reflection of her intellegence and creativity. If you've never visited her site, prepare to BOOKMARK and return.

You're right about Stephanie. She's awesome. I have a piece of her art in my art space. It is to die for...

How clever of you Seth, to leave Stephanie until last! Always make your audience leave wanting more. Stephanie is wonderful, as is her blog. You have given me so much to think about, and SO many more people to follow! It's been wonderful, Seth, thank you so much.
