What perfect timing to receive this issue of Harvest Magazine in my mailbox the other day! I'd just gotten home with pomegranates and a tiny pumpkin (autumnal faire) when I found this waiting for me. The magazine's lovely editor Imogen Stubbs contacted me several months back about using some of my artwork for this issue, and I had completely forgotten that I had a copy on its way. Serendipitously enough, Dan-ah Kim's beautiful work is also in the magazine, and I'm such a fan of her work. If you live in Australia, please hunt down a copy, I can't wait to read mine.
Also, I just came across Jess Gonacha Swift's mission statement on her blog. I was completely bowled over. I'd never even considered coming up with a mission statement for myself as an artist... until now..
These little beauties are heading to South Pasadena to be a part of Zinnia's 350 Show, opening Saturday, October 24th. There will be 350 panels in the show, all selling for amazingly affordable prices, with a portion of the proceeds going to 350 Carbon. If you are in Los Angeles, please stop by for a peek, and grab a piece of gorgeous, ridiculously easy-on-the-wallet art!
(I will be there, too.. buying early Christmas gifts and helping the environment at the same time)
Here are close ups of my panels:
