So since I do this for customers and provide them with the same information ... I'm posting it here.
Alright, with twitter being really big for marketing right now there are a lot of things to do and not to do when you go for tweeting about your stuff, since twitter is following spammer and con trends that are rampant on twitter right now.
The most important of which is to find people. Now I personally like to use… Continue

This is for artist grants from foundations or for the Art in Public Places grant, so I will base my knowledge on this.

I went out and painted "en plein air" today. I felt like getting out of the studio and doing the real deal! I found a good turn out off the side of the road and set up the easel next to the tail gate of my truck. In front of God and everyone I painted in public. It was really scary at first. I thought what if my painting stinks and someone stops to look at it? What if...what if... what if... I feel so much safer when I'm in my insulated studio space.… Continue

Good AM everyone, just spent the past week in the Denver area doing encaustics and spending some time with some great friends. It has been a productive time. Lots of new ideas for art when I return to the home base. My friend Don Nash, made tons of new encaustic paints and now I know how to do it too, thanks to is inventive nature. Will be returning to the south (Texas) tomorrow and will never forget this trip. Toodles

Ugh! I hate blowing my own horn. I've rewritten my statement half a dozen times, crumpled it up and thrown it away again. How do you exude confidence but not sound conceited or full of yourself? I have to have a full page of information about myself and my art. This is tough. Guess I need to stop procrasinating and get busy writing again.

A crew playing the dirtiest game, terrorizing a blind woman in her home ! But, she's not an ordinary woman ! she's Audrey Hepburn, as Susy, a very resourceful woman who happens to "see" more than what one could imagine. What are Richard Crenna (Mike), Jack Weston (Carlino) & Alan Arkin (Roat) after ?
Amazing acting & Henry Mancini's score serves superbly this scary thriller, which was also well directed by Terence Young.
We must render to Ceasar his due, this movie… Continue

I've been wanting to do an actual picture with encaustics and not an abstract piece. I've been working on painted series of ladies featuring afros (I'll post them later). I was inspired to give it a try in beeswax.
OMG....I never thought it would be that hard! Bless those that have mastered it.
Anyway, I am loving the way she is turning out. A little cartoonish, but hey this really is not easy.
She is done on a wood panel with canvas gesso'ed on. I started with… Continue

Well I did it! And i thought it was going to be difficult! But OMG i can't believe how easy it was to create my very first Photo Book. It is called Scanner Art.
The quality is excellent and i am really happy with the results. I had it published through Blurb.com which was recommended by Ryan. Here are some of the pictures from the book.…

Now that the torso is out of the kiln and washed off I'm ready to collage it. The situation is....where do I begin, should I cover it in acrylics first or use something under it? It's been years since I've done a collage, have concentrated on pottery when all of a sudden I had this crazy idea I should branch out, but I hesitate, afraid I'll mess up and produce something so ugly that I'll have to hide in the house. Courage, that's what I need, devil may care attitude would help as well. I have… Continue

So i started working on a new mask recently and i thought i would show you what i have done to it so far.
So as the mask began to dry a huge crack appeared at the top of the head. I have never worked with this clay before so i guess it will take a little bit of experimenting to find out all of… Continue

There have been a few blog's recently about what is Art and what makes an Artist so I thought I would share a recent incident I had with a friend regarding this. We were having a conversation and my art portfolio came up as it needs a revamp. I was going through and making a list of what I needed to include in it for entry to the Masters of Art Therapy I wanted to do. So we were discussing Art and Psychology and I was trying hard to explain arts function within the health system. That… Continue

Yes, I know
that my declaration regarding my contempt for the season that I understand I'm supposed to love will put me at odds with much, possibly most
, of humanity but, so it goes. I mean no offense to any of you out there who thrive on heat and sunshine; to each his own. Sunshine and heat are just superb at draining me of my energy and even occasionally throwing in a migraine as a bonus. A grey sky with thick overcast and a temperature no higher than… Continue

There are only two reasons to become a painter. One, because you are willing to dedicate your life to aesthetic excellence on your own terms, and for its own sake, success or no success. Two, because, assuming thirty years or so of life experience, you arrive at the conviction that nothing else is worth the trouble.
Both of these reasons are equally important. If you cannot accept this dual motive as it is, you will probably give up painting, or far worse, you will… Continue

My daughter Fiona gained herself a 2.2 in BEd from the University of Hertfordshire, and I am so proud of her achievement. Its been a long almost 4 year slog for her. I admire her sheer guts and tenacity to gain her dream. I watched and was there through the tears of frustration, tiredness, and frought times, I willed her on as Mums do. I felt tears of joy for her when she told me. Her Graduation ceramony is in November at the Abbey of St Albans, and I will be there with bells on, im sure I will… Continue

One day when I was walking...
Me and my mom have decided that at least three days out of the week we would wake up at 6am and go walking. I drive over to her neighborhood which is filled with beautiful homes with manicured lawns in a wooded golf course community. Yeah folks it is quite lovely. Not to mention my drive is all of about 8 minutes by car.
Now as we walk we are chatting and looking around at the beauty we see around us. There are always deer trolloping about.… Continue
