I found these two end tables- both for $8.00
*Ugly falling apart shades - didn't get a picture of those.
*Blonde kinda bashed about finish.
*Wobbly- needed some fixing.
But HEY! $4bucks a piece? What a deal.
So I sanded- primed- painted - added some awesome turquoise shades.
(they were $5..00 each)
So for a total of $10.00 each (tables, shades, primer and paint I already had) -
and a little time and effort-
I now have a great set of end tables!
Following is a post from 2016 on my old blog: webeginbeing.blogspot.com
I still adhere to these words.
I have since discovered Pinterest, which is AWEsome!
I have since given away or sold some of my supplies so that I can concentrate on a few things
instead of being overwhelmed by so many.
I focus mainly on Colored Pencil and Collage work now.
I teach Various Colored Pencil Classes. My hope is to have some on-line classes- stay tuned.
Learning from Any/Every Source
I like to Learn.
Whenever I can.
From whatever Source I can.
I like to Observe/Look at All Kinds of Art, Nature, People.
If we Limit ourselves to only one Type/Kind/Philosophy/Idea
then we will Always be coming up with "The Same Stuff"
I receive newsletters in my personal box from:
Free Will Astrology
to name just a few.
Some are daily, some, weekly, some monthly.
Sometimes I get a great deal out of the post and sometimes I do not.
But they are a good source of the written word from which I can gather
Ideas and Information and Thoughts.
I "like" numerous Artists pages on various subject matter on my Facebook Page .
Painters, Musicians, Collage, Photography, etc.
I enjoy going to sites like Demilked or BoredPanda
for more Visual Different/Interesting stimulation.
I go to the library and look through magazines and check out books
from a Wide Variety of Topics.
Fortunately or Unfortunately I also have this kind of SunRay Approach to my Art.
I have yet to "settle" on a specific medium, theme/subject matter, type of Art.
I use fabric, paper ephemera, colored pencils, paint.
I work on paper, canvas, wood, textiles.
(when I had a MAC I also did computer driven work)
It can get/be over-whelming sometimes.
I am trying to follow The Buddhas words:
"Do One Thing Well."
My photos have been coming out truly sad... washed out... can't see detail.
Grey Girl Graphics (company that built this site) showed me how to make my own Photo Lightbox.
I made this one- learned some things and will make another=Larger with White Tape instead of Black.
All in All though it came out pretty good I think.
Step by Step of Dear Darling Dudley.
I took a gazillion photos to get a decent one I could use... he was such a sweet dog.
I was gonna leave off the slobbery brown bits around his mouth but owner Jim said "Leave it in. That's Dudley."
So I did.
This is literally the second pet portrait I've ever done.
The first was of my own Sweet Squirt. I was unhappy with it. And too depressed as I drew it.
She passed. VERY hard to handle.
I started the portrait years later. But couldn't deal.
It's been 8/9 years now.
I may try again... we shall see.
At this point I am getting really annoyed with myself. Just DO this thing already.
The drawings are not coming out as I wish- so let's go with my love- Collage.
All right! Let's DO this thing!!!
That's it. That's the One. My Left and My Right= My WHOLE Brain.
What can I say about my love of collages?
A lot probably but I'll try to keep it simple.
More in future posts perhaps.
I love searching thru my paper ephemera- text and images-
The Traveller: colored pencil and collage - vintage photo for inspiration, vintage paper ephemera to finish it up
Limited color palette to keep it soft and muted.
I loved creating this piece.
Random Ramblings & Imagery by myself & others: poetry, quotations, art, photography- whatever I find interesting & inspiring-
