Note From Diana Carey:
Don and I are happy up here in the Great Northwest. Our home is beautiful sitting on an acre of land with a spring and waterfall. And it’s right in the middle of a very populated area so we have access to shopping, medical and whatever else we need. I even found a place where I can get steel for building my pieces. I do miss some of the people in Livermore though, and I haven’t gotten hooked up to the art scene up here yet. Most of my time is taken up caring for my mother. Don is working on xing up the garage so I can use it for my studio. Anyway, here is the photo of one of my pieces. It is called The Dancer and is made of steel.
Want to Share your Artwork? Sometimes there are pockets of unused space in the Portfolio. Instead of using clip art, since this is an art newsletter, would you like to see your work in this newsletter? Send your jpgs to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the medium and title. I will hold them in a file & use them as space pops open. Norma Webb
