Hello dear friends and friendly strangers,

I'm putting together this art book to celebrate the closing of the "Ghost Photograph" series. These simple, small paintings have continually astonished me with their ability to affect people in both a playful and meaningful way. These ghosts are familiar; they are the ghosts that travel with us, the ghosts of our moments, our minutes, our yesterdays. As I move on from these found photo paintings to focus on my large canvas endeavors, I want to properly honor my steadfast spirit companions with this publication. Inside will be many of the greatest hits, some paintings yet unseen, a cool smattering of notes written on the back of snapshots, covers and interior pages of vintage photo albums, and created "memory" poems penned by yours truly. It will be a beautiful menagerie that I am sure you will want to flip through more than once - worthy of top o' the stack on the coffee table! 

Love you all, and thank you for your thoughtful messages and support through the years.  

xo, Angela

Risks and challenges

All the rewards other than the book itself will be able to be in your hands just in the nick of time for holiday gifting. I have found a most trustworthy book maker out in California, so I don't foresee any complications other than maybe my own anguish during the editing process! ;)
