I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.
I'm enjoying myself at home on a cold winter day browsing the web, remembering those whose work I've always enjoyed and learning about new artists.
Check out Caitlin's Hyde work at www.caitlinhyde.com
I met Caitlin in 2000 when I moved to Carbondale, IL and took my first bead class with her.
She's an artist of both conceptual and technical degree whom I admire and whose work I enjoy very much. Caitlin is also a very kind and wonderful person and that comes through in her work.
A new artist I just found out about from browsing Caitlin's virtual pages is Lena Revenko. Visit her at www.lenarevenko.com
I think of her as the Frida Kahlo of these times whose work is a combination of a kind of fairy tale dreaminess and an acute awareness of the current social realities.
Tell me what you think.
