Trading Partners

Dancing Towards the Light by JJ Jacobs
The news is in:  my trading partner for the Bead Soup Party is JJ Jacobs of Coming Abstractions.  We've exchanged emails, and I'm very excited.  While the primary focus of her blog seems to be her abstract, organic acrylic paintings, to which I'm drawn quite strongly, she's also a lampworker.  I need to ask her if the beads in her bead soup picture are her work - they're fantastic!

To the left is one of my favorites of her paintings, Dancing Towards the Light.  Acrylic on Canvas, 36x24.  And oddly enough, I swear didn't notice this until just now, when I went to add the link to her blogsite, but she posted this picture on the day my book was published.  

I have to wonder a little why Lori thought the two of us were opposites, as we both work primarily with color and freeform, organic designs.  But I'm not complaining.  Nuh uh!  Lucky me!

Now to put together her packet of goodies.  Hmmm......
