Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter.
“Next to Nothing” by Susan Walsh
Acrylic, paint, ink, 12” x 12”
Susan Walsh lives in Elk Mound and works part time as a department assistant for Mayo Clinic Health System-Home Health & Hospice in Eau Claire.
“Our empty nest has allowed me time to get back to art. ... I have had many hobbies over the years and have lots of various supplies on hand. A few years ago, I ran across art journaling on Pinterest. I loved the idea of experimenting and practice without pressure to make great works of art. The mixed media aspect allows me to use old art supplies, scrapbook papers, stamping supplies, etc. Working in the art journal has brought about a new confidence to occasionally journey onto canvas.” – The Artist
