It's not a dream, It's not a dream....

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Good Evening Folks,

Mindi is off this week.  I am pleased to announce, due to popularity, and with a bit of coaxing with treats, she (Mindi)  has accepted  responsibilities here at Two Dresses to assist me as a  part-time blogger, volunteering for literally the price of a small piece of bacon.  Now, it`s my job to bring some home!

This week I have had to pinch myself a couple of times to make sure I wasn't dreaming.  I've always subscribed to the idea that if something is too good to be true, then...well, you know the rest.  I also have a tendency to hesitate announcing anything until it is 'signed, sealed and delivered.'  But now the 'cat is in the bag' - I'm delighted, proud, pumped and overall giddy to share my news...

First, I received an email from Seth Apter to announce his second book titled " The Mixed Media Artist:  Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from 40 Amazing Arts" is now listed on Amazon for pre-purchase.  I have two pieces of artwork featured in his book, along with a link that will go live  to an exciting stop-motion video of one of these pieces as it progresses from a graphite pencil drawing to a full color collage. 


-The Mixed Media Artist - 
Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams From Over 40 Amazing Artists
Author - Seth Apter


Secondly, in December 2012 (aka best.gift.ever) I received word that I was among the winners in a competition hosted  by  Artists Network culminating in this hardcover book -  Incite: Dreams Realized - The Best of Mixed Media.     "Over 100 of the most inspiring works from the mixed-media art community are featured under the theme "Dreams Realized," offering readers a level to aspire to. This premier competition book will unite artists from around the globe and will showcase the power of positive intention!"

"Incite" is also now listed for pre-order via Amazon.  Preordering prior to publication equals savings of approximately 35%   Both books are due to be released at the beginning of  October 2013!
