Quarry Books 2009 1592534562 / 9781592534562 Hardcover Like New 
Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists: Experimental Techniques fo r Composition, Layering, Texture, Imagery, and Encaustic by Ann Baldwin A workshop-style book, oriented to the wide community of crafters and artis ts including those interested in paint, surface design, mixed media, and co llage, which explores a wide variety of innovative and experimental paint t echniques. Chapters cover composition, abstraction, texture, layering, usin g found objects, encaustic, integrating text, and adding digital imagery. Ann Baldwin (Vallejo, CA) was born in London and lived there until 1990 whe n she came to live in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband. She bega n painting in 1991, after being a teacher of literature all of her working life. Within 18 months she was exhibiting landscapes in local juried shows. Initially self-taught, she began studying art history, painting, color the ory, drawing, and design she became known as an abstractionist, and later d eveloped her text-and-image collages. As a full-time artist, she continues to break rules and experiment, currently with encaustic. Editorial Reviews Baldwin, Ann. Creative Paint Workshop for Mixed-Media Artists. Quarry: Quayside. 2009. c. 144p. illus. ISBN 978-1-59253-456-2. $24.99. ART INSTRUCTION Baldwin refreshingly sees abstract art as a childlike craft rather than as a fine art. She first teaches the basic rules of design and composition, th en sets free with paint, crayons, photos, fabric and wax. This unique volum e removes the pomposity from art and restores the simple joy inherent to it s creation. - Library Journal, July 2009 - From the Publisher.

Don't miss The Pharos Gate, the final volume in the Griffin & Sabine story. Published simultaneously with the 25th-anniversary edition of Griffin & Sa bine, the book finally shares what happened to the lovers. Griffin--Foolish man. You cannot turn me into a phantom because you are fri ghtened. You do not dismiss a muse at a whim. If you will not join me, then I will come to you. --Sabine Sabine was supposed to be imaginary, a friend and lover that Griffin had cr eated to soothe his loneliness. But she threatens to become embodied, to ap pear on his doorstep, in fact. So he runs. Griffin & Sabine, the most creative and talked-about bestseller of 1991, le ft readers on the edge of a precipice. With Sabine's Notebook, they begin-- along with Griffin--the fall. Once again, the story is told through strange ly beautiful postcards and richly decorated letters that must actually be p ulled from their envelopes to be read. But this volume is also a sketchbook and diary kept by the possibly unreal Sabine, who is living in Griffin's h ouse in London while he wanders through Europe, North Africa, and Asia, bac kwards through layers of ancient civilizations--and of himself. Filled with her delicately macabre drawings and notations, the notebook adds a darker element of visual intrigue to their complex and mysterious world. For the thousands who finished Griffin & Sabine and asked, "What happened next?," this second volume in the quartet provides the answers--but raises new and even more haunting qu.

The book highlights a selection of record-breaking auctions sales-fr om Van Gogh's "Portrait of Dr. Gachet" to a Louis XVI dresser to Leonardo d a Vinci's Codex Hammer to Walt Disney's film Snow White and the Seven Dwarf s.

19 Edison, Diane DYNAMIC COLOR PAINTING FOR THE BEGINNER
Abrams, Harry N., Inc 2008 0810970902 / 9780810970908 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Painting in oil or acrylics is one of the most popular of the fine arts, wi th an enormous body of lore for the aspiring painter to master. Diane Ediso n offers a new approach that explains traditional techniques and materials, but also emphasizes expression and creativity. Edison wants the new painte r to feel fearless and free to experiment. Her method, honed though years o f teaching painting and drawing, quickly overcomes the stiff, forced feelin g experienced by most beginning painters. She believes that the dynamic use of color is the key to unlocking and understanding the possibilities in pa inting, and she offers a practical introduction to color theory and design to point the way. Her book includes inspiring art, much of it contemporary, along with clear instructional illustrations; her step-by-step exercises have been tested on hundreds of students with no prior painting experience. A successful artis t herself, with an unmistakable personal style, Edison shares not only know ledge and experience, but also a strong sense of what it means to be an art ist. Editorial Reviews There are many books that teach beginning painters to use a limited range of basic colors. Both of these volumes delve into the richer possibilities. In his brief, practical guide, Bartges, a successful "corporate" artist with works acquired by Marriott, Capital One, and Media General, explains how great artists from Degas to de Kooning consistently selected the best color combinations for their paintings.

In addition, there's advice on setting up a proper workstation and creative exercises for inspiration.
