Just released in time for the new year is this new edition of Mountain Dream Tarot. Using the original photographic images from 1970-75 (pre-Photoshop). They retain their monochromatic look, but have been slightly tinted. This slimmer deck has been digitally printed onto coated stock and is encased in a drawstring bag. Cards measure 2.75 x 4.75. They are available using Paypal from my store.http://www.beanettles.com/store/?page_id=348

Hendrix College Visit

September 10th, 2012


I have returned from my Arkansas visit. Here I am having iced tea with Maxine Payne(Photography) and Melissa Gill(Printmaking.) I visited two classes, gave a gallery talk at my Return Trips show, and delivered an evening lecture. It was HOT there, but I enjoyed my stay. I also photographed in several cemeteries for the next book I plan to produce.
