My Creative Neighbourhood – 23 Oct 2010
So what’s been happening in my creative neighbourhood this week?
Chasing Purple Dreams had the opening night of her solo exhibition, ‘Emerging‘. Congratulations, and I hope it all went well. There are some beautiful paintings in her collection. My favs are ‘Optimism’ and ‘Flight’. I’m a sucker for good colour manipulation.
Juliette Crane was interviewed for a magazine and found herself painting a new beautiful little girl art piece. She’s gorgeous, Juliette. Love her red hair. And it was great to see your outdoor set up.
This lady does some seriously beautiful artwork. If you haven’t seen her stuff before, you are missing out. Check out her crochet and her tree paintings. I am a major fan. This paper craft effort…ooh, that reminds me I need to comment on it and rave a little…I just adore her use of colour.
It appears that just about everyone has jumped into the fun over at Tam’s Willowing and Friends Art, Heart and Healing free e-course. If you haven’t had a look yet, hurry on over, it looks like great fun (unfortunately I couldn’t afford the time to join in 🙁 so I’m missing out). I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Looks inspiring.
My best wishes go to Melissa Dinwiddie, who has had a hard week. But also my best curiosity because she has some seriously interesting creative stuff brewing on her blog. I recommend a visit 😀
Don’t forget that Art Every Day Month is coming up next Sunday. I’m new to the idea though I have attempted NaNoWriMo on two occasions. Let’s just say my novel is still in progress (three years later). This challenge looks much more manageable and despite the children factor, I’m planning on giving it a go. Join me?
As for me, I have some art in the works at the moment, though despite my declaration in the previous paragraph, I’m finding it hard to find time. This piece is a little more work intensive than its recent predecessors and it is taking me a while. Hopefully I’ll have something new to post soon.
Also, don’t forget the Drawing Lab Challenge is still running. Anyone can join at any time and I’d love to see your results.
Thanks for sharing your creative work. You’re a bunch of inspiring neighbours.
(who hopes to find the time to do everything)
