Artists@Work: Day 7

The start of a new week and new possibilities! Will it be a productive day or not? I think it turned out rather ok. It’s been interesting watching the others create throughout the days and realize how similar we react to a problem. I find that when a problem really stumps me, I just moveContinue reading “Artists@Work: Day 7”

Artists@Work: day 6

Saturdays have a more laid back feeling at the Arts Center.  Since I was unable to participate on day 5, it was great to see the other artists progression. Kendal went to town with recycled items.  Her main table space was filled with multiple ongoing projects. Below are several recycled material mosaics. Below she usedContinue reading “Artists@Work: day 6”

Artists@Work: day 4

Does it work for all artists to be out of their comfy studio and into a public venue for a month? Is it easier for a 3D artist to create vs 2D while on display? It’s too early to tell for our group of four but it will be an interesting conversation for next week.Continue reading “Artists@Work: day 4”

Artists@Work: Day 3

Even before taking off to the Arts Center, I had to snap one photo of all the vultures in the back field. Grass seed farmers were cutting crops today which stirs up a great commotion in the avian world. I counted over 20 turkey vultures, 3 red tailed hawks and one immature bald eagle gettingContinue reading “Artists@Work: Day 3”

Artists@Work: Day 2

Kendal joined into our group today and it’s a pleasure to have her! The gallery finally feels full now. It’s funny to see people’s responses to the show. Most folks don’t even want to venture into the space even though there are big signs saying “Please come in!” People are expecting that the exhibit isContinue reading “Artists@Work: Day 2”

Pre-Show Work

My mission today was thus: #1: Take a couple of photos of my designated space in the gallery #2: Work on a maquette to better solidify my visual concept. With a barking Maggie waiting in the car, I  took a couple of photos and did some quick measurements of the west facing wall in theContinue reading “Pre-Show Work”

Moving towards new products…

Woodworking is a love/hate relationship at my studio. I need to create using wood in order to help display other works, but really lack confidence and tool know how. My father is a good wood crafter, producing furniture, building houses & cabinetry, but I have not yet taken advantage of his knowledge (and he’s 84Continue reading “Moving towards new products…”

Luminaria for Friends

Back in October, our friend Shannon married her partner Megan. Last month, they had a great celebration with family and friends at Downward Dog in Corvallis.  Since the party I’ve been slowly working on completing a luminaria as a wedding gift for them. Shannon really likes yellow but I was not able to incorporate thatContinue reading “Luminaria for Friends”

Bringing in the pro!

I passed along a few dollars to one of our local photographers, Harold Wood, for some stunning images. Harold’s work is tops! Now I have images of the two works for the Ag show plus a stunning pix of my leaf coat from 2009. Here are the results: Journal Entry: February 1, 2011, mixed mediaContinue reading “Bringing in the pro!”
