Dear Art Lover,
Autumn is here and in full swing. This is perhaps my favorite season for making art.
Over the summer I gathered new source material. I made many new photographs while camping in Big Sur. I painted and sketched and collected raw materials for direct scans. These elements are now being woven into a new series of work that will be unveiled during my Open Studios in spring 03.
My time at SIGGRAPH 2002 was productive and inspiring. I lead workshops in The STUDIO on alternative digital printmaking processes. It was an exciting time to share and learn from one another. I look forward to seeing some of you back in the Guerilla Studio next summer in San Diego.
*** NEW WEB SITE ONLINE ***
Ive decided to give my fine art a home all it's own. I invite you to visit my new website located at www.lynbishop.com. The site features information on the artist (that's me), the art, news and a new online shop. In the shop you'll find a catalog of fine art, greeting cards, postcards, and a poster for peace. All can be purchased online using Paypal, a safe and easy-to-use service for online credit card transactions. I hope you'll stop in and take a look around the new site.

A followup on the Adobe Magnificent 7 honor. Adobe Systems has added pura puseh to their corporate art collection. At a dedication held in October, I presented the mixed-media piece to Brian Lampkin, VP of Adobe's graphics division. It's a great honor to have a piece of my art on the walls of this great company.
