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!
Head on over to the colorful and dynamic world of Dina Wakley. I love her freewheeling approach to art and am so pleased that she has been part of several of the online versions of The Pulse. She has a unique and distinct style that she uses to create dramatic journals and artwork. She has her own line of cling mount stamps, teaches workshops internationally, and lives at the intersection of Artist and Scrapper. She will be teaching in NYC later this year and I look forward to meeting her in person. Today on her blog, she talks all things The Pulse of Mixed Media.
I am excited to be in The Metro DC area tonight for an artist talk and book signing at the Judith HeartSong Fine Art Studio and Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland. The event runs from 6-8pm. Seating is limited and you can RSVP by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be speaking to a dynamic group of "regulars" who are part of a monthly Art Salon, as well as additional attendees -- many of whom are familiar to me from blogland. Happy also that contributing artist Lisa Jurist will also be attending. Look for s review of the event, pictures and all, on my blog in the coming days.
