Seth Apter from the blog: The Altered Page, put out a request to artists (is it a year ago now?) for possible submissions for a book he was writing based on something he did on his blog called Taking the Pulse of Mixed Media artists...
"What is your biggest fear?"
My words about this are in the book along with the art.
Seth Apter's book is called The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed.
I am proud to be one of the 100 artists.
(my bag lady is on page 128)
This book is unlike any art book I have ever seen.
It is not only full of the wonderful art work of so many amazing artists
(you undoubtedly will be familiar with many of them, and will want to get to know about
all the ones you do not yet know; and the book links you to their blogs and websites)
but it's also about their words, their feelings, their thoughts and their emotions.
I told Seth last night in an email that reading the book was a bit like
"Open Mike Therapy"!
(my little joke)
I got my copy from Amazon.com. I understand that Barnes and Nobles has some on order; and you can even get it for your Kindle. But for me flipping the pages and holding the book in my hands is an incredible experience. I might add that this is my first art work published in a book. (One of my art quilts got published in a calendar in New Zealand a few years ago.)
So I am just a little bit over the moon with the excitement of it all.
Thank you Seth!
Thank you Seth!
PS: Addendum April 3. 2012
"Bag Lady" has sold to a blog friend in London, England
and is on her way to her now!
She asked for it after learning it was published in Seth's book!
How cool is that?!
