My thoughts and heart have returned to Taos after I visited Mitch Lyons' web site and learned that he will teach another clayprinting workshop there next June. But since I'm moving back to the east side of the state Sept. 5, the drive will be twice as long to Taos, but a clayprinting workshop would be worth the effort. Look for a clayprinting workshop near you at: www.mitchlyons.com.

Diane Arbus

I found it in a box, my 2004 journal. It had not been bound so I took it to the printer and got a spiral binding on it. Of course then I had to sit down and read it, and I came across my 2004 visit to the Houston Art Museum to see the Diane Arbus exhibit.
I wasn't excited about driving 10 hrs to see this show. I had seen many, many of her photos, and figured I had seen enough. But to see the originals was a treat. B&W in a 12x12 format made me understand how truly unique these images are.
In 2006 the movie Fur was released. I love Nicole Kidman but thought she was a poor choice for the lead. The movie was a quirky interpretation of Diane Arbus's life. And BTW she pronounced it Dee Ann.
There are gobs of her pics on the web, just Google her; it is worth the effort.
