Unique Workshop Location

 http://media.nola.com/tpphotos/photo/2012/01/10465388-large.jpg
The workshop chairperson for the Louisiana Watercolor Society just informed me that the location where I will be teaching my workshop in May is going to be featured on HGTV this Sunday, on a show entitled You Live In What?! The segment will air at 7 pm CST and 8 pm EST. The studio is a former gas station that the artist Robert Guthrie has converted to his home and studio. Below is a link to an article that I found online, complete with 20 photographs. 
I can not wait. What a fun place to teach!

Stuff Happens

I had an unfortunate thing happen. I started to receive emails from other artists, about a book that we were suppose to be in, titled Best Of Worldwide Watermedia Volume 3. Evidently, Kennedy Publishing, who's books and competitions (promoted by Dick Blick), has gone out of business and the book will not be published, without explanation. We 'proofed' our pages (see above) but the books failed to materialize. I only lost the entry fee and a few books that I purchased in advance but others have lost hundreds. They seemed to be a reputable company and I have purchased some of their lovely books in the past. Perhaps they are a victim of a struggling economy and there is no shame in that. Just wish they would have been forthcoming about it. Sadly, these things happen but no need to dwell. I do have this pretty proof and it's only money :)
