I mentioned this group to the gals at La Selva. Here is a link to see more of what we are about. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MixedMediaArtistsofNorthernCalifornia
Here is the link to my favorite online group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/clothpaperstudio
If you have never belonged to an online group, I can tell you that you will meet amazingly talented people, and will soon feel that the world has shrunk as we share our arts.
