Many artists find the move into abstraction a difficult and uncertain one because they lack the proper guidance needed to take this bold step. In this inspirational workbook, award-winning mixed media artist Claire Harrigan leads painters towards non-representational painting through the use of color. Fantastically illustrated throughout and featuring sound technical advice, it covers every aspect of abstract painting, from concepts and influences, inspirations and starting points to approaching subjects, basic design considerations, and surface textures. Step-by-step analyses of Harrigan’s own work demonstrate the importance of color contrast, harmony, and impact in a range of mixed media.

In Rue Saint Jacques, cultural discovery is weaved throughout a story of loss, intrigue and self-sacrifice. Young Tennessean Marie Doughten becomes fixated on discovering the secret behind her reclusive employer's forbidden, padlocked room in his 5th arrondissement apartment.
Marie's insatiable curiosity forces her to choose between placing her own life at risk to help the mysterious Charles-Henri de la Motte, or maintain her distance and suffer the consequences of her apathy.
And then there was one... When psychologist Damian Steele killed off the nasty half of his dual-personality patient, he never expected that the 'widow' would file a wrongful-death suit. Nor did he expect that a breathtaking beauty would be his saving grace.
Attorney Kay Kellogg had handled some unusual civil cases at Justice Inc., but Damian's was definitely setting a new precedent. So, too, were her feelings for the darkly mysterious and sinfully sexy psychologist - the 'beast' who kept far too many secrets. As the sensational trial unfolded, Kay found herself fighting not just for justice but for her sanity. For Damian's secrets were the kind that stalked the mind as well as the heart.
