My Sister Story

Meeting in the Moon Garden
January/February 2009, Somerset Studio, Black & White, Volume 13 Issue 1
Very early this year the Somerset Studio call for "Black & White" art went out.
You know my "sisters" had to go.
I am thrilled and honored to be included in this beautiful issue.
Oh how exciting it is to have a little corner on the contents page.

And then, on another corner among page after page of beautiful black and white art.

It is all so very exciting, but that is not the story I was going to tell you about.

This story is about a blogging sister family.

It's about one blogging sister who dared another blogging sister.

And they each took the dare.

Two books.

Two blogging Sisters.

Two Artist.

Meeting face to face.

A page in my I Dare You book by Zorana.
(See this page in her book here.)
She returned my book with this beautiful page finished. I hope I have time to do another page in my book before I take it back to her to swap again.
Friday the 26th.
Two blogging sisters
California and finish the year of 2008 making ART together.
You know we will show and tell.
Expect beautiful art next year,
