One Thesis: Finished

Yes! I turned it in yesterday. Felt so good.
"Beyond Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe"
What's that, you say? Beyond Frida & Georgia? But they are great artists. Yes, they are, but there are so many other great women artists that I bet you have never even heard of, let alone seen a book or two about. Especially books for kids.
 I took a class a while back called Women in Art. I was surprised to learn about many women artists I'd never heard of before. I got excited, asked too many questions in class, til the professor told me to stop (she did, really).  Oh, I guess I can find out on my own. So I did.
And I wrote five picture books, each about a different woman artist.
 Rosa Bonheur, Maria Martinez, Sonia Delaunay, Elizabeth Catlett, Ruth Asawa
Look for them in print some day.
Who would you like to see a book about?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, dear followers!  I am so thankful for all of you. I hope you have a lovely holiday with good food and great friends. And ... a reminder that my artwork is still up  at  Rick & Ann's restaurant in Berkeley,  til December 9th. If you're still hungry... stop by for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.
