Those of you also on my physical/snail list: this email duplicates the
flyer you recently received.
Also, this is being posted to a number of lists, so, sorry for any
duplications generally speaking.
HIBERNATION SALE 10% OFF
Winter is the slowest season at bitchy buddha press. The Muse puts on her
flannel pajamas & takes a big long nap. I get groggy on cough syrup &
nothing happens. Take advantage of my dimwitted boredom by adding to your
bitchy buddha press collection at 10% off. All orders received before the
Vernal Equinox (20 March 98) get 10% off--except for postcards & pencils,
because they're such screaming bargains already! Flu germs not included, I
promise. Happy Year of the Tiger!
(by the way, there's cheaper stuff if you keep scrolling down!)

pieces consist of many individual silk "pages" dyed in varying shades of
color, silkscreened or embroidered with text or images, and installed
together resembling an unconstructed quilt. I spent October at The Millay
Colony for the Arts, where I took advantage of the big studio walls to
complete Afterimage/Lake #2, a 15' exploration of the conceptual color
"lake green". Because these are unique, large pieces they are not itemized
here; please feel free to contact me for more information on these dyed
