It's getting close to time for Nita Leland's latest book, Confident Color: An Artist's Guide to Harmony, Contrast and Unity, to hit the bookshelves. I will be represented with the image above... haven't see it yet so I don't know the context but since it's primarily a black and white painting, I suspect it will be an example of the counter use of color. A website called Art To Art Palette has started putting together a bit about the book and little interviews with artists who are featured. Mine is one of the few up at this point, scroll down the page to read.
This will also mark the second of Leland's books to feature paintings by Cheryl McClure on the front cover. Congrats, Cheryl... proud of ya!
Don't know why it tickles me, but also represented is Skip Lawrence... who played an early and very important role in teaching me what I needed to know about making art at a time I was very anxious to learn. Nita's early book, the first printing of The Creative Artist, (since been updated) took up the slack a little later when I was searching for something more that detailed realism.
So... thank you Nita... anxious to see the book... I know it will be another winner!
