    I'm making little Art Magnets from prints of my original miniture art
cards.  They are the size of a wallet photo.  I have about 200 different
little mosaics to choose from.  I'm adding the textured lacquer to the
pictures, so they are really more than just prints.  Each one takes about
45 minutes to create.  I'm not getting rich, but I wanted to have
something affordable for everyone.
     They're $8.00 each or 3 for $20.00.  I've made about 60 magnets
so far.  I've sold about 35 of them, so I'm really encouraged by the response!  I think I'll go now and make some more............

Medusa was accepted into the Trillium (Travelers Rest) Juried Arts Show. The reception was last night. I went to the gallery by myself, because there was a Dodger playoff game on and I knew Paul was  dying to watch it. My Medusa mosaic didn't win any awards.....well, they did say I was "a very close runner-up" for the People's Choice Award......but, I had a great time, met some new friends and drank free wine!

Upstate Visual Arts Juried Show

    This is the Painted Mosaic I entered in the UVA Juried Show. It's called "STILL WATERS" (from the phrase, "...still waters run deep..."  It won the "People's Choice" award!!! That was three weeks ago. Then last week, I took it to the Trillium Arts Festival in Travelers Rest SC, and it sold to a private collector.  I will miss this painting........
