A workshop I’d like to take: Lynn Whipple

Since I have a May deadline for a book and am at this moment in the midst of a painting workshop, Lynn’s workshop is not in the cards for me this time around. But some of you might be able to attend so I wanted to mention it’s coming up at the end of April.

Lynn Whipple has been making amazing mixed media art for years that incorporate antique photographs and her witty drawing and painting. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines such as Fiber Arts and Cloth•Paper•Scissors, as well as several books such as The Altered Object and Art Making, Collections & Obsessions.

These books look interesting, don’t they? I haven’t seen them yet, but will check them out ASAP.

On Lynn’s web site, don’t miss the Ninnies... each one is more absurd and compelling than the last. Her studio is located at McRae Art Studios and the info about her Mixed Media workshop is here. If you’re in the Orlando area on April 25th, it would be a very worthwhile day of creating with an innovator in the contemporary art scene.

Thank you for the link. Those ninnies are hysterical. My mother used to call us ninnies when we did something silly. I had forgotten that word for a while. :)

I do love the ninnies! I'm always in awe of the imaginations of artists -- such as you!
