In the Studio~Being Flexible

The past few weeks I had to be out of the studio and am now catching up on things around here! Life just requires us to be flexible sometimes and revise our plans as we go…I find it challenging to adjust, or put on hold, work and business tasks, but have learned to expect that this is a normal occurrence.

Some of my collected autumn leaves….Have you been collecting on your walks?

Studio News!!: I am creating an on-line shop, which will be open very soon! I hope you will visit and view the new archival Art Prints of select art quilt originals that will be available. Included, from the Sea Images series, will be prints of Fractured Fish #1 and Fractured Fish #2. The latest studio original art quilt, Fractured Fish #2, will also be available!

The first Studio Printing Day will also be announced soon! Prints that are ordered will be individually printed in the studio by me, the artist. They will be signed and matted, ready-to-frame. I look forward to creating these reproduction prints, using high quality pigment inks and archival quality papers and materials! These will be perfect for Art Lovers, Art Collectors, and Creatives of Life, looking for unique prints for their own collections or for gifts to others!

Well, time for me to get back to work!…. 🙂

Creativity IDEA~Autumn’s “Walk on the Beach”

I dream of walking along the beach, collecting as many different shells that catch my eye! So many in various shapes, sizes, and colors! It’s hard to limit how many I pick-up…Where did they come from? Were they ever in another country, washing in from another part of the world? Is the blue beach glass from a broken bottle thrown from a ship in Iceland?…..

It’s Autumn around here and the trees with so many different shapes of leaves, are ablaze with many wonderful colors! As I take a walk at this time of year, I find myself picking-up and collecting fall leaves in a similar manner to collecting seashells…How many different shapes/types of leaves can I find? How many sizes? And of course, the colors vary from deep reds to bright yellows! On my porch table, I lay out my daily “finds” beside last years shells from beach!

Creativity “IDEAS”

This past month a special group of Art Lovers, Art Collectors and Creatives in Life received the first Studio NewsNotes by email! In it they got a 1st Glimpse of my latest art project, learned about what was new this month in the studio (I will be sharing that here very soon! 🙂 ), and received a Creativity IDEA to try. I want to regularly give IDEAS, to those who receive the Studio NewsNotes, ~ a Something to try for adding more Creativity to their daily lives!

The Creativity IDEA from the July Studio NewsNotes was:

* Sit in a different spot in a room!…in a classroom, office conference meeting, or living room watching TV. What do you notice? Anything new?… A different perspective?

If you would also like to be updated by email, and join a very special group of people receiving the studio’s NewsNotes, please Sign-up Here...or see the sidebar!

 

As a Thank-You, you will receive FREE, “10 Somethings To Try”, Adding More Creativity to Life.” It is a list of 10  Creativity IDEAS to get you started trying new and different things, gathering and generating many ideas, and experiencing and viewing life from different angles!
