Other artists create sculptures and three-dimensional works. Every once in a while, I stumble across something fantastic in nature.
Today I want to feature and very unusual piece of art I came across on Bunche Beach in Fort Myers, FL. Most people appreciate a beautiful intact seashell. Most people also appreciate healthy green vegetation. Yet, few of us would see the art in a dead bush and bleached broken shells that this artist did. Most of the shells had holes in them, the result of the predators who ended the mollusks’ lives.
While not everyone would see the beauty here, I appreciate it as an unusual but lovely work of art. It did bring joy to my heart.
I hope you make or find some art this weekend that brings joy to your heart, too.
Book Note: I truly appreciate my book illustrators, who have added so much to the words I write.
On March 14-15, 2020, Tucson will host the third largest book festival in the US, theTucson Festival of Books. Over 130,000 people come to enjoy this world-of-books every year.
All aspects of the book business are included, with several hundred authors in attendance, many who are involved in panels open to the public. Special programs for children and teens and about science are presented. This event is known for its cultural diversity and promoting literacy among children and adults in Southern Arizona. Millions of dollars have been donated to literacy programs because of this focus.
I participate in this event by having a booth from which I sell my books. It’s wonderful how much people like buying books directly from authors and I love meeting them, as well, and personalizing and signing the books. It’s one of the most rewarding parts of being an author.
I share the booth with my friend and author/illustrator, Anderson Atlas. Between the two of us, we have books that cover all the children’s book age groups, and some for adult readers, too.
Stop by and say hello on the weekend of March 14-15, Booth 324. I’ve included a TFOB map of the location of the Children’s Area at U of A below.
