Express Yourself 4: More Artists!

One of the most interesting artists self has ever met is Kim Thoman, who comes every January to the Mendocino Art Center to incubate new work. (Just thought of using that word “incubate” — Haaa, Self likes it!)

In the few weeks she’d been in Mendocino, she’d filled up the walls of her studio, and began using the floor. Self was in deep anxiety that her klutzy ways would end up making her step (inadvertently) on one of these pieces. Here’s one of those “floor” pieces:

The other fabulous artist self got to know here is Mary Ellen Campbell. She drove to Mendocino from her home in New York State, with that kayak strapped to the top of her car. She’s been here since September:

Finally, something from the home of self’s childhood friend, Connie Ignacio Genato, which is — yup, uh-huh, self’s feelings exactly:
