Turn Your Photo into Art!

I know, heard it all before, haven't you?

Not like this.

Nancy at Atelier Conti on Etsy, one of our Printsy members, has an offer to turn your photograph into a photogravure etching.

So what?

Well, what about some of those fabulous old family photos you've got stored away in your closet? Or one of your wedding photos? How about a pic you snapped on your recent vacation that just captured the moment perfectly? Turn it into a hand-pulled print, and you don't even have to do the printing!

Contact Atelier Conti for details. I'm going to rummage through my photos to see what I can come up with :)

PS - she's also got a B&B just east of Paris, France in Montmirail; check out Maison Conti. Ah, if only I had airfare...

Thanks Lori!

Lori Dean Dyment at So I Was Thinking... posted about the Open Print Show (still on until this Sunday) at the Federation Gallery, and had very lovely things to say about me. Thanks Lori!

Yes, I've been web-silent for quite some time. Mostly income work, also garden work, and no art work!!

Hope everyone's well... will be checking in again at the very least when I go to the Nanaimo Art Gallery later this month for the opening of the Oceans of Art Exhibition. Come on by to the opening, June 11 from 7 - 9 pm, if you're in Nanaimo and say hi!
