When an artist friend Cheri suggested we do an art swap when we meet up in Toronto at the end of June, we were nervous.Nobody, outside of mother, owns any of our paintings (and hers are on loan, really).

And then she said this would be ours in the trade.
Now the bar was set.
This past weekend (Thursday afternoon, actually) the painting for... read more »
Canvas Stretched onto CradleboardThis year's challenge for the North River Arts Society event is to transform a twenty inch wooden cradle board into a work ofart -and - somehow integrate a word into the creation. Signing up for these challenges is exciting because it really makesonepush out creationsthat otherwise would never have been conceived.Staring at this nice cradleboard square of sturdy wood,it did cross my mind thatit couldserve asthe base for athree dimensionalcreation. 3D has never been part o... read more »
Так багато прекрасних картин одночасно ви ще не бачили! Здавалося б, передати всю красу картини на мультимедійному проекторі не реально. Але якщо підійти до цієї справи з креативної сторони, то цілком реально придумати щось оригіналь, цікаве та навіть вражаюче.
В цьому я переконалася на власні очі, відвідавши Мультимедійну виставку Ренесанс. Епоха геніїв в A-gallery, що в ТРЦ Art Mall. До речі, сам торговий центр досить милий. Його нещодавно побудували, зовсім мало відчинених магазинів, але сама атмосф... read more »
Last April 24, 2012, I conducted an Altered Journal Making in Centrio Ayala Mall here in Cagayan de Oro City. I was so happy that kids enjoyed it and were addicted to painting on the old books that we have provided and drawing on it. This activity was sponsored by Centrio Ayala Mall and gave this for FREE to kids who would come and visit.If you have kids out there who might be interested, we will still have more craft activities to follow. Please find below the schedule of activities. I will still be tea... read more »
Sunny, Cold Brant Rock April - Stage OneIt looked like April with a high midday sun,and a greenish turquoise ocean color. It just didn't feel like April. I set up overlooking the Brant Rock in Marshfield, Massachusetts. The wind was whipping from the North, so Iset up with the car to my left,which helped block the worst of it. Thestrong Aprilsun was on my back and gradually the cold was less noticeable. The water was a beautiful combination of colors. Ultramarine blue at the horizon lightening to a turqu... read more »
Colorful Still LifeHerein New England (like much of the country) we areweary of winter and out of energy for bracing against the cold. I want warm temperatures and my eyes are craving color. The subtle shades of gray in the sky andsnow that I usually love don't have the same allure. It's time for the next season, so let's get on with it!
Explosion of ColorAssembling this group of splashy and colorful objects was fun and painting them meant usingoil colorright out of the tube, a real treat after blah g... read more »
This penny painting is on display at the beautiful South Street Gallery in Hingham, along with another 25 cents for your viewing pleasure. What superstitious Irish person wouldn't like a clover leaf painting on a penny. An extra lucky penny... read more »
Ice Fishing Shanties - Stage OneOn the first paint out day away, we spent entirely too much time trying to find a great spot to paint.The issue we had in beautiful Chesterfield, New Hampshire wasn't that there weren't enough scenic spots (blanketed with a gorgeous snowpack), but rather there was so much snow, that the embankments prevented convenient access, both for parking the car and walking to a spot. Instead of the coveted covered bridge scene, we found a location behind the Brattleboro, VT Retreat ... read more »
Masters SnippetsI thought I had had a novelidea, and that was to create original oil paintings on shiny, copper pennies. The idea hit me as some coins were being placed in my hand recently. Iknew that painters sometimes use copper substrates, but not the size of a penny.
FloralI tried a yellow rose, a winter snow scene, a couple of miniature portraits. I loved the smooth copper surface. Could I possibly be the only painter who thought to use them?I googled "penny painting," and a painter names Jac... read more »
