Helen's new article for Cloth Paper Scissors!

True Story! My art amiga Laurie Mika sat down to paint and this is what happened! 

Here's Laurie's post from FB......

"serious irony!!! Sat down to relax and brought out my little Jane (Jane LaFazio) kit of watercolor supplies to finish up the little masa watercolor technique that Helen just showed us yesterday....and while waiting for it to dry, I decided to peruse my unread copy of CPS....and turn open the magazine and landed right on this article about masa paper watercolor painting by Helen ! How ironic is that!!!"

You can buy this March April issue right now at Barnes Noble,  other book stores and mixed Media shops, or online at  Cloth Paper Scissors
