http://artjuvenation.blogspot.com/ came to visit for a week. John is part of a men's ATC group I started last fall. We have become good friends via emails and having an actual visit was amazing. We spent the week making lots of art- many different things. I seldom have anybody in my studio so this was a treat. I experienced something that I had not before. That was the joy of making cooperative art. We did some Gelli printing and we found ourselves making the prints together. John was intrigued by a mail art piece that Shirley End-Saxe had sent me. http://shirleyendesaxe.typepad.com/ This piece was a sort of free-form collage having parts that were joined in various ways. So we spent his last day here each making a collage in this way. This was a real stretch for me and I found it so fun and exciting. I now want to do more of these. Thanks John for a wonderful experience and Happy Birthday!!!!
