Adventures in carART: Artists in Cars Making Marks

Adventures in carART:
Artists in Cars Making Marks

This book is for anyone who wants to combine their interest in drawing or painting with time to enjoy art by themselves in their car.


This book shares some of the tips and tricks I've picked up as a practicing carARTIST, as well as a few of my own carART sketches.

  • You'll learn how to make art in your car: what to take, where to go, and what to do when you get there.

  • Lots of tips, photos, and supply lists will get you on the road to becoming an accomplished carARTIST in no time.

  • If you're a busy person with a demanding job or young kids, you're a perfect candidate for carART and the opportunity for alone time.

  • If you don't have a lot of art experience, don't worry. Let your inner child out and give it a try.

  • If you're already a practicing artist, carART will get you out of the studio for a refreshing change.

Whether you've already made art in your car, or are intrigued enough to try it, you'll enjoy this entertaining and enlightening book.

The book is available from LULU for $24.94 plus shipping. It is also available online from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.

The Painter's Guide to Photoshop


This E-book on CD-rom features how-to information for use with Adobe Photoshop software.
The book was created in 2007 and has not been updated to reflect tools and techniques in the most recent versions of Photoshop.
But the concepts and ideas in the book are still relevant, especially for beginning users of Photoshop software.

Featured are easy to follow instructions for:

  • cropping and sizing photos
  • editing images and applying special effects
  • creating art cards, flyers, catalogs, and web image galleries
  • creating original digital art

Special Sections for Artists include:

  • The Painter's Edge with tips and techniques created especially for painters, and
  • Photoshop Studies with step-by-step instructions for performing painterly tasks. Sample photos are included for use in completing the exercises.

The CD-rom also includes:

  • Hundreds of royalty-free photographs - landscapes, still lifes, florals, and other subject matter you can use for studies or finished paintings.

This CD-rom is currently sold As-Is. The CD was originally created to work with both Mac and PC computers. You must have Adobe Reader version 5 or newer to read the eBook. The concepts presented in the eBook should be relevant to any version of Photoshop after 6.0. But there will no doubt be differences in the tools, menus, and other features of more current versions of Photoshop.
The CD-rom is available on Amazon for $19.
