I had heard about this guy in the states who had made work and hung it outside his window for a number of months to see what effect the environment and nature would have on it. His name was Seth Apter and he has a blog all about the disintegration collabaration project. I thought this looks interesting and I might give that a go sometime but was too busy at the time to do anything about it.
Then the other day I discovered on red bubble(another arty website) a group doing the… Continue

Hi people. Well, I didn't make any sales at the art show but I learned a lot, (one hell of a lot), met some new friends, networked and a guy took my card for a commission. (I have my fingers crossed on that one) The Traveling Painting arrived from Germany just in time (2 days before actually) to be opened at the show and I was very excited about sharing this "beautiful traveling art piece" with the public. So, all in all, it was a very… Continue

Its been a long time since I last blogged or added work..
I have been a slack tart...LOL..
but I have been active.
Just dont seem to find time to upload anything!!
Had my first exhibition..made no sales, no prizes....but it was good for me to see that the quality was there...(i was worried my work looked a bit highschoolish)..
but I think it was just not the right place for my work.
Very traditional show, lots of realistic landscapes, bowls of fruit, horses and french… Continue

I'd like to get a heat gun so I can try the Bubble Effect Technique. Will one of those craft heat guns do or should I get the industrial type? Any advice?

OMG people! I am about to jump right out of my skin! I am sooooo freaking excited, I cannot even tell you! The Traveling Painting arrived from Germany today! Just in time for my art show this weekend! I haven't opened it yet. I plan to do an unveiling of the painting at 1pm on Saturday at the show, so that I can share this wonderful world wide art project with all those that attend the show. Videos and photos will be made available--YOU KNOW THEY WILL!!! Have I ever done anything without making… Continue

what is it about color?
what do colors mean to you?
do you have more than one favorite color? why is it your favorite?
do you believe in color theory? red=energy, blue=calm, yellow=inviting, etc.
how do you decide what colors to use in your art? are your choices just random?
do you experiment with mixing colors or are you kind of in a rut of using the same few colors?
i for the most part am a self-taught artist and i know a little about… Continue

HI All... Haven't posted in a while.. rather busy as usual at work which lately has occupied all of my time.. However I'm pushing through and starting to embark onto a new Series. The 14 Stations of the Cross will be a 14 piece series that is positioned as more of a medatative position on each of the stations of the Cross. While I am not considered "Overly Religious, Catholic etc.." I do believe there a idealogies and thoughts that can be medated upon and used for our lives today. If your… Continue

It is only week three of the business being opened, but I found out yesterday a piece was sold. Thanks everyone again for the encouragement.
Along with this news I was given an invitation at another shop which is also on the trolley line (on a different street) to hang some art and to participate in a show this Fall.It's all really exciting and I'm happy to share the news with my art peeps!

I was able to go to Micheal's today and I blew 60$ on art supplies. Yay! I bought spray paint in all the primary colors. I also bought the varnish I needed to finish my eggshell technique experiment tomorrow once it's dry. And some beautiful new stencils and stamps. I don't know what to try first. And I got a pretty pink basket to hold it all in. I'm on cloud nine. Once the kids are finally asleep I'm gonna sneek down into my "studio" and have some fun. All I need is a disco ball. LOL

Have you ever wanted to sell your art at an art festival, but fear of the unknown stopped you dead in your tracks, while the desire for the gypsy lifestyle was still in your soul? Have you visited festivals to see the array of art from… Continue

I sometimes get too attached to my artwork. I'm not being narcissistic because I quite hate some of my own artwork!!
But when I get something framed and hang it on my wall, I am so loathe to take it down and put it up for sale. It's like a baby you know - good or bad, it's still mine!
So the main reason for this possessiveness is that I would have spent worknights, weekends and every snatched moment of spare time thinking and making them paintings. Then after all the hard work I… Continue
