Welcome to my art blog.

This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

Art-Startz Becomes a Reality

Tomorrow night, 5 brave friends and I will gather to explore some creative possibilities that I'm calling Art-Startz. At the urging of a couple of close friends, I have been imagining a way to coax others along the path of creativity. Believing that art has to be lived and cannot be taught, I see myself as a tour guide rather than a teacher. My own creative journey has been through years of self-experimentation, books and workshops. I would have been helped greatly by having a tour guide along my creative path, a path I nearly abandoned out of frustration. I'm very excited to see what grows from this special night.

So, I'm dying to hear how your art event went? And why wasn't I invited??? It sounds like great fun. What did you do? Did you take pics? Can we see? Please... anything... I need some inspiration!

Art-Startz was a huge success! Everyone completed an amazing painting utilizing a graded watercolor wash. I'll post pictures when I get them. I'm hoping to conduct the next session sometime in October, perhaps a Saturday morning.
