My art, my life, my family and whatever strikes my fancy

Well, June and I are both traveling but we managed to complete our homework on time. I am in a hotel room in Las Vegas and had all but despaired of getting the WIFI to work, but Ray had a brainstorm and    figured out what we were missing. So here it is. June's drawing

What an interesting week it has been! I whined on my blog about my own lack of enthusiasm for writing, lately, and about the dearth of comments; which garnered so many comments I have scarcely been able to keep up with them! I asked if these digital drawing posts were boring and urged you to be honest. Some people claimed t

Holy Moly. Last time I checked there were 48 comments on yesterday's blog post, plus a bunch more on FaceBook. I learned some things.General concurrence that less blogging is happening and fewer comments are being left. Not just here. Throughout Blogdom.Reasons for not leaving comments include:

Last week I made a presentation at the Oregon SAQA (Studio Art Quilts Associates) Conference about blogging. I called it "Blogging Your Way to Fame and Fortune." That was a joke, the fame and fortune part.

I chose the theme "Food" for this week's digital drawing. I had plans to do something interesting and complex, like a sandwich or a piece of pizza—something really challenging, but when I got down to a looming deadline I went for the fridge and pulled out the carton of eggs I just purchased. June's still life is a little

"Abstract literally means to draw from or separate. In this sense every artist is abstract... a realistic or non-objective approach makes no difference. The result is what counts." - Richard Diebenkorn"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands

I don't know if anyone is enjoying the digital drawings that June and I are exchanging every Sunday,* but I sure am. This drawing on the iPad has opened up a whole new world for me. Why, you might wonder, am I doing it and what does it have to do with the fabric art that I do? Well, I sort of think that all art relates to a

Yesterday the Portland SAQA (Studio Art Quilts Associates) group met and got a look at some of the pieces that were not selected for the upcoming SAQA show called "Exploring Layers." I suggested we might do this because there were more pieces rejected than accepted and rejection is hard and misery loves company and it is ju

The digital drawing project continues. My friend, June, and I are posting a drawing made on our respective computers or digital tablets each Sunday. We present these as a learning process, hoping that we will see improvement as we go along! Some weeks are easier than others. It's a big topic. You are invited to

Week two of our digital drawing exchange. I think we are both showing growth, even in such a short time! Well, we are enjoying it anyway. This week's theme, suggested by June, was two household items of any size or mode that "talk" to one another. Anything from tchotchkes (knicknacks) to pianos; "talk" in the v

Boy, it has been hard to get back to work after our trip to Ecuador, Christmas, New Years, trip to San Francisco and getting caught up with everything. Really, I'm still not caught up. I feel the need for some direction, though.I am between projects. I have finished a couple large pieces that will be submitted f

You know, if you've been reading this blog, that I have been playing around with drawing/painting apps for my iPad. My friend, June Underwood, is also interested in digital art and has been experimenting on her PC and her Android tablet. Last week we went to San Francisco to see the David Hockney exhibit at the deYoung Muse

My friend, June, and I have been on a lot of "art dates" over the years. We usually meet at the Portland Art Museum or at a Portland gallery and spend several lovely hours looking at and discussing art. June is very fun to discuss art with. She is a former fiber artist turne

I am continuing to report on my progress drawing and painting using the iPad. Last week at our STASH meeting I did a little demo and discussion because Gale was interested in using her iPad for drawing and planning projects. She was asking about whether one could load a photo into a drawing program and trace it. This is qui

I find it fascinating in Ecuador that there is so much art being made and that each small town seems to have its own specialty. Near the city of Ibarra is the small town of San Antonio de Ibarra where the specialty is wood carving. The little tow

We took a little day trip from Ibarra out to Salinas in the Chota Valley. It was a small group excursion on a kind of trolley-like vehicle that travelled on the old train tracks. It was full of Ecuadorians and us, and we had a charming guide named Christina, who pointed out the interesting sights along the way and filled in

We have never been to Ibarra so we needed Ani's help. I had found a Hacienda in Ibarra in our guidebook that I thought looked interesting. I had a mental picture of an old colonial hacienda converted into a charming inn. "No" said Ani. " I know the place. It is not good. I know a newer place—very nice. I guarantee yo

When we got back to Quito from Cuenca Andy had a couple more appointments at the dental clinic where the Dr. Fitted the molds for the permanent teeth and took some more impressions then said he didn't need to see Andy for 5 more days while the lab does its work. We made a quick decision to do a little traveling,
