Alright. Back to the business of making art and writing about it. My friend Jessica posted the pictures from the Creep Cinema show this past Saturday, so those are included in a slideshow below. (Thanks, Jessie!) I really can’t say enough about what a cool venue the show is in…a comic book store…but a really big one. When we dropped our art off a couple of weeks ago we probably lost an hour just wandering the nooks and crannies of this place, checking out ‘Ugly Dolls’, anime, graphic novels, cool art books and collectibles. I got a few ideas for some grants and art projects…having the kids create a graphic novel or comic book, contacting a local artist, exploring Pop Surrealism, creating our own ‘Ugly Doll’ pillows…and even more ideas for my own art. I forgot how awesome Wonder Woman was. Wow.
So, back to the opening….it was great. We got all dolled up in some fancy schmancy art attire…embellished with plastic centipedes, rats and such for the occasion and set off for the art event at Bear and Bird Gallery. (Hey, when else are you going to get away with this?) It was crowded, just as she had said it would be. The work was hung salon style, really packed in. I had to make a few rounds to really check it all out, and I am sure I missed some. We found the event photographer and got pictures beside our work, then just mixed and mingled among the tight crowd of folks there to appreciate the work. Walking downstairs in my red heels my mind was already spinning with the next event, the next opportunity to create and to share my work.
I finished up the three ‘Word Fixation’ paintings that I was working on in my ‘Classroom Studio’. I didn’t work on them last week but I guess they were pretty close to being finished…or abandoned.
I have two things that I would like to work on…a piece for a show down in Boca, due date is November 30th...
…and I feel like I need to do some just…DRAWING Pencil. Simple line, selective rendering…accented with some colored pencil details or a light wash…that might be my next project for the ‘Classroom Studio’…which I think I will refer to as ‘Studio C’ from here on out. Just cause I like the sound of that.
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
