A grocery budget surplus comes around rarely in my house, but alas, it magically appeared this week.  I was tempted to be practical and buy a back-stock of staple items.  But at the last minute, I came across tamarind pods and decided to splurge.  I’ve always wanted to make my own tamarind paste just to know if would be better than what I could buy.  It isn’t, but I can now say I’ve done it, ha.  The next Call could put a surplus in your art budget or at least help you meet your budget.  Take a look…

If you are an apartment or city dweller, it is exciting to trip across another fruit or veg that can grown in a container.  A friend from Atlanta recently sent me pics of the grapevine she is growing in a container on her balcony.  Potted grapes, seriously.  The grapes aren’t miniature; it can just be grown a miniature scale.  She claims it is going to produce fruit in its first year too!  This next Call wants your miniatures — a maximum of 9 square inches.  Printmaking shows aren’t that commons, so don’t miss this opportunity…

CALL for ENTRIES: Madness

2017 July 11

Learn more about the Digital and Collage Madness exhibit from the Las Laguna Gallery!patchwork PROVISIONS

The weirdness of my lunch is directly proportional to how badly I don’t want to go to the grocery store.  I spend most of my working hours in my home office/studio.  As a result, my work clothing standards are sometimes (often) not how I’d like to be seen in public.  So to avoid the extra work of dressing and driving and shopping, I create food collages of sorts –often disparate ingredients composed into pasta salads, casseroles & almost anything sauteed & stuffed into a corn tortilla.  This next Call is for traditional & digital collages; I don’t think food collage counts.  Take a look…
