Sunday, December 14, 2008

Well, I'm almost finished Xmas shopping.....I just have to workl on my cards....not tooo many. Working in retail during the holiday season can be a bit AGGRAVATING......due to the fact that the holidays seem to bring out not only the best in people but also the worst...

I have posted a few thing in my ebay store ......not much art work but other things.....tee shirts, collage kits, ornaments etc...take a peek!

New art


Workshop

Hi all,
Well, my friend and i have a Press release going into the Asbury Park Press on 11/21. We are doing a worlshop in Toms River at the Ocean Couty Libaray on Nov 25th at 6:30 PM and its FREE!! Some come on down! If you need info the link for the library is http://www.oceancountylibrary.org

This is the fifth workshop we have done . Each one was a litle different basexdc on the age and number of people who attended, We just make sure that each person goes home with one complete page.

I have been thinking about maybe getting together a few of my artist friends and running a weekend workshop (this would not be free:)). Have any of you out there done a weekend 'retreat' or 'workshop'? If so, please share.....

Seaside Horses

I still have not gotten around to making a collage with these pics but its on my list of "art to do"...
I went into the studio yesteday and started a painting on a small piece of scrap wood i found lying around. I was looking through a art print catalog and saw some work that i liked and it gave me the jumpstart i needed. I'll post when its completed.

Halloween is just a few days away and i still have to buy the rest of the items for my costume: the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, I still need a vest and a wig to cover my hair. The pocket watch I'm going to make out of foamcore.

Where do i find inspiration

I have been in a little bit of a 'creative funk" lately. I found inspiration in looking through some magazines at a friend's house today. I also read a few blogs that touched on the subject of "non creative days" . A few artists suggested that you should go to your studio and work...everyday whether you feel like it or not, change format, change your palette, make art bigger or smaller than what you are used to.....So, tomorrow, i am off to the studio after work and I will try to create something I am happy with....until then....

Seaside Heights NJ











This Spring we took a 'photo excursion' to Seaside Heights, NJ...just about 20 minutes from home. The boardwalk rides were still closed, so were the game booths. The carousel, however is open all year. This carousel is one of the oldest in NJ nd it is indoors. The artwork on these animals is awesome and I plan on making a collage with these photos soon.

Some new work here. I wnated to use these class pictures I've had for awhile.....i just needed the right time....

New work...a journal in an Altered Book


I decided to make something for myself for a change. Here is a 2page spread in a journal I started a feww weeks ago. I have never journaled before...let alone share it with anyone.....but these are not very personal pages so here they are....


How do the rest of you feel about journaling...do you think it is a way to get creative? I'm sure it is a way for some folks to 'heal' after a traumatic experience.......what do you think?
