Kaleid Gallery (San Jose, Ca) invited me to participate in their “Exquisite Corpse” exhibit opening July 14th. I was assigned to do a torso. We were also given specific parameters for the type of paper and dimensions. Since I do not have the proper brushes to do a water color in my typical low brow style I decided to do a mixed media somewhat abstract. I started out doing a drawing with prismacolor pencils, one of my favorite tools but given the size of the paper and time constraints I ditched my first efforts, I did cut it up into bits and pieces for some future endeavor
Also, we made a visit to the Santa Barbara Botanical gardens and I couldn’t resist photographing one of my fav flowers, gigantic white poppies, I will be planting some!
While my time is for the most part currently usurped by our transition from one home to another, I have been able to do a drawing or sketch here and there.
This is a study for a painting, titled “Listening Fence”, the idea came from a dream I had, although in the dream, the figures were more angst and the heads were ended before the eyes start. that still could happen I am undecided until I start the painting.
I may change the composition a bit, depends on my intuition when I begin the painting.
I drew it on a piece of card board, that is all that was around at the time.
I have been forcing myself to not spend too much time in the yard. In Calabasas the roses are in full, glorious bloom and are so lovely and fragrant. I do adore a cut flower and will be planting roses in Ojai for certain. If you are new to this blog, I am moving from Calabasas, Ca to Ojai, Ca. Both locations have their merits.
I tried to feed the birds by making these orange cups from a recipe I saw on pinterest.
I do believe that they ate the whole thing including the string inside, peanut butter, oatmeal, sun flower seeds and bird seed.
Its a little cluttered with my many plants which I will be removing soon. The house is in a safe and quiet neighborhood. We love a Mediterranean style house and have eleven contented years, but times and needs change
That is bout it for an update, I hope to be creating a lot more soon.
There has been so little time for art the past few weeks as my husband and I transition from one house to another and supplies are packed and displaced. We are down sizing quite a bit and that has confused things as well, because I could probably fill a whole garage with my art and materials, oh yeah I did :b I’ve been trying to be rid of stuff and pack other stuff up for my parents to sell in a garage sale. I do have a truck load for them. Lesson be learned, don’t be a pack rat (sounds better than hoarder!)
Did manage to do a little drawing and collaging, not all that thrilled with my collage, I see it is a form of expression one needs to work at or take lessons from Karenann Young!
This is prismacolor pencils on Bristol vellum. I had to stop as I wore out my sharpener. For real. “Hatched”
“Where there is smoke…”
I’m listening to Kat Edmonson and loving her voice and music. I Have home made beef jerky cooking in the oven, while we try to eat beef only once every other week I do love to snack on jerky but it is way to costly in the grocery store.
