Sunday Postcard Art: The Geisha’s Hat

| November 16, 2008

This is my first time posting to Sunday Postcard Art.  I found the site several months ago, but just never could get it together.  So I was bound and determined to post this weekend.  And although it is late on Sunday, I am going to do it.    I loved the idea of a hat [...]

Mixed Media Monday

| November 10, 2008

I have missed posting in Mixed Media Monday.  So, while I was in Kelly Kilmer’s class this weekend, I worked on my submission.  I created a journal page in my new Fukoro Toji we made during class.  At first, I was really spun up with doing something anatomical based on the description.  Then it occurred [...]

The Release of Peace: The Block

| November 9, 2008

I have had one of the best weekends, outside of the Obama Rally a few weeks ago.  It was great.  I took three classes from Kelly Kilmer.  I mentioned her earlier this week.  She teaches awesome, creative, innovative classes all around journal making and journaling.  She has been published several times and teaches all over [...]

Lucy Mae

| November 6, 2008

I dedicate this post to my mother.  Lucy Mae was born the day the stock market crashed in 1929.  She still recalls growing up in the segregated south quite vividly.   She remembers going to segregated schools and having to step off the sidewalk when a white person would be coming down the sidewalk. Her grandmother [...]

It is about time that I start blogging again.  You are probably wondering where I have been.  Well quite frankly, I have been on the Race to Craziness!!  Yes after my post about the accident, I hit a level of overload, I haven’t seen in quite some time.   To catch you up just a [...]

The Accident

| August 17, 2008

I call this image the Race to Craziness.  I love it because the canvas was covered in receipts, statistic book pages, music, tickets from everywhere that year, and more trashy novel pages. My goal was to cover the chaos of life and make it beautiful.  The piece is 24×36”.    I chose it for today’s [...]
