july/august cover of CPS!

the new CPS came in the mail yesterday! I was floored...as in sitting on the floor going "hot flash"....as i literally had no idea my paintings were going to be on the cover!  these are mixed media bird paintings created on plaster board. i love this technique because you can carve and scratch into the plaster, thus it is messy and therapeutic to do. this is one technique i covered on the CPS dvd i shot last month....i have been into birds lately because my kids are teenagers (which could really be another new blog) and i feel like they are flying out of the nest...so i am thrilled and honored to be a cover girl this summer with CPS. ! thank you!

I was excited too to see you in there. Just last week I visited some of your photos on facebook and lo and behold there you are with instructions on how to do it. Can't wait to try some of those techniques.
