Great Art Pictures, Ceramics and Jewelry at the Maker Fair

 Art from the Maker Fair was the place to go see.

This past weekend there were many beautiful works of art and meeting of creative artists, new and old friendships. The art was varied  with many  styles for all types of buyers.  Many gifts were bought and wrapped during the day.  Memories of a wonderful day, to be recalled for the next  year's event.

Come visit me this weekend and my artist friends for great gift items and to meet the creative artisans at the next Fair in Windham, NH.

Update: Beginning of Art Work Sales

                Original Art for Sale.
I just recently changed my studio around, to give me easier access to my items I need as I work. This is when I realized how much work I still have in my studio from  before the two times I have moved.

I am selling the original work and printed items too. To the beginning of using a website and to have have an open studio day, which would mean I have to get the art ready for all of this, the website gallery,  the online store and the open studio. As I began working on the website, I realized many of my art images have not been digitally scanned, photographed, then matted and even framed. So creating the web pages and the online store is the easy part -  cataloging the art, getting it photographed, matted, framed and ready to go up online and the studio walls is a large task.
SO - it is going slow and hopefully my website,  store  and studio gallery walls will be ready by the 1st of the year... I am trying for sooner.

I am doing all this while I teach classes at the College.

Below: just a few of the images I am scanning, later the larger images will get photographed.

Screen project. ... Fall Pumpkin instead.

I have wanted to start  another screen drawing, using the Neocolor II  crayons, yet with the fall season coming  I noticed one of my small paper  pumpkins needed some paint.  So testing out the crayons  on the form, I found it blends great on the smooth surface without  water, only a damp brush. 

I like the outcome, a smooth mix of the fall colors.

Then beginning to sketch the new screen image.  Working on the new image between teaching classes an adjunct instructor at the Lakes Region Community College.

Vacation drawing

I have been on vacation, spending my time reading art magazines, painting and creating miniature pictures of the beautiful beachfront area. I have enjoyed my days and been getting tan at the beach.
Walking the beach along the waters edge in the day. And in the evening walking the bordwalk, looking in shops,  taking in the restaurants, playing miniature golf and going on the amusement rides.
A wonderful family  vacation week.

Planning for the new school year

I have begun planning for the new school year and in the process I have not found interesting planner pages I like with the spaces I want to use. So I have created my own pages and I will do two more to be unique pages for my own planner book.

So far these pages are the base for the layout,  I will add a quote and the text with Adobe then make it the right size for the placement of the holes and send it to print for back to back pages.

Learning a new Bookbinding Stitch

This  bookbinding  stitch  is beautiful  and intricate  yet I am finding it to be a bit complicated.  I am determined to master the stitch  then use it to create  a new artist book.
I have 4 book ideas in my head I will be sketching out to figure out how they will be bound and made.  I will post more about it soon.

Today is crazy artistic mojo.

I am making many decisions about my work and how it will be presented at the exhibition.  I am  cutting,  hanging, measuring and arranging. 
My art is very nostalgic  yet using new pieces  made to look old.
