Last Saturday I drove up to East Jordan to participate, for the third time, in their annual Holiday Art Fair sponsored by the Jordan River Arts Council. The three-hour trip is always worth it for me: not only do I get lots of help unloading, but my work is always appreciated there.
The most important book I’ve read in a long time is Half the Sky, by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. It’s not an easy read, but I read it all, through all the rapes and abuse and violence and murder that women suffer around the world. Okay, I have always known that women suffer, but I have never really understood in what numbers, and how blazée the news media and international governments have been about it. Women are treated as if they are invisible.
Please come help me downsize so if I buy a house (I’m looking), I’ll be able to fit into it! Almost everything in my studio—original art, prints, posters, cards, purses—will be at least 50% off and many things much more than that. I’m also offering picture frames, mats and some of my student art materials. If I have room, I may include a pre-garage sale of better items and I’m offering discounts for teachers buying for their students.
