Book news!

Earlier this summer artist, neighbor, and friend Carla Sonheim asked if I would be willing to contribute to her new book, "Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun."

I tried not to trip over myself in my rush to say "yes!" It seems like a cliché, but I found it an honor to be included, and even more than that, it was FUN! Carla gave me an "assignment" or two that was right up my alley and, call me deranged if you like, but I loved having playful homework!

Carla's marathon efforts are making the last sprint for the finish line this week, and this afternoon I learned that the book (due in July 2010) is already available for pre-sale on Amazon. Congratulations, Carla, and thanks again for asking me to come along!

Hi, Sherrie,

This looks exactly like a book I would love to have. I want to spend some time trying my hand at a bit of drawing and learn to use watercolors as well.

Hey Lindy... If you come up with any ideas of some place I might come teach a field sketching class near you, let me know! I'm working on my 2010 schedule now... it would be fun to come down your way!
