Hello Artists!
I sort of fell off the blogging radar for a bit.
The next photo memories will have no words.
So you can add your own.

Polymer - American Craft Magazine

At lunch, Roz mentioned the newest edition of American Craft and the leaf necklace on the cover.  It's FABULOUS, so thought I'd share.  Within the article - if you click on "previous" and "next" you can see all the photos in the article.  Love the creativity of 3-D!  I've messed with polymer - but certainly NOT on this level.  Wonder where those silly buttons are....

Here's the big link:

Two at the DAM

Hi all - Roz and I had lunch at the Denver Art Museum today.  Just lunch, no inside museum stuff.  Fun to get together for a brief bit.  We hope to get together with Ellen and Fran soon-ish - we do all live fairly close to one another.  Hope all of you are doing well!  And, finding time for creating.... xox.  R & R.

Bill Cunningham New York

Here's a site for the movie: Bill Cunningham New York - the fashion photographer columnist for the NY Times.  A Norma suggested movie.  Also a link on our books/movies/music page.  I see it's in Taos, at the Harwood on October 8 - one day only.... grin.

Roz's Blog Recommendation

Roz recommended adding The Sartorialist blog to the list of blogs we link to (over on the right).  As it so often happens, as we discover things about new friends, this happens to be one of the blogs I follow, too.  So with a vote of 2, it's in.

As Roz said: A great blog: The Sartorialist - wonderful fashion from a fabulous
photographer who shoots "ordinary" people all over the world. Also people
send him vintage photos which are pretty great, too.

I love it because it's photography and the color, pattern combinations are always interesting.  Always.

Another way to think different art.

Blogger/Question note:  I'm happy to help with questions as best I can.  Another way is to google your question - often you'll find help that way - and probably more timely than my response.  This is how I've discovered how to do things on blogger.  Again - no pressure here - just information.  And, I'm happy to try to help!

Hello Artists!

Having a morning moment with a latte and all of you.  sigh.... and grin.... (SAH).  Sitting out on our covered porch in the backyard.  It's beautiful this time of day.  Now, if only I could walk inside the kitchen to some warm, cooked-by-someone-else, bacon!

Roz and Emily have asked about posting to our blog.  I'm adding them to the "blog team."  Let me know if you would like to be added so you can post to draw obliterate.  If you think now is the time to start your own blog, let me know and I can add you to the list on the right of the blog.  Ellen "from the coast" is now on our list of blogs. 

Here's a link if you'd like to create your own blog on blogger (there are many How-to examples out there, just google it).

To blog on blogger - you need an account on gmail.

I encourage everyone to leave a comment on the posts.  It's a thrill to read a response to what is posted!  It's like passing one another on a path - a short "Hi, Great photo" is wonderful!

The only "rules" for posting to this blog:

1.  Select a Title that is not a number.  I already have things numbered for the year so the numbers are taken.
2. When you create a post, use your name in the Labels box on the bottom left of the post.  That way we can easily see who posted what.
3.  The blog is set up as "no adult content."  So - no adult content.  Thanks.
4.  The blog is "searchable" so things you post can be seen by others.  
5.  Ok Artists - let's get posting.  Feel free to share things from our class time and anything else from your current art world.

Blogging gets easy - you just have to start. One click at a time.  :)

I realized I was going to learn a lot this week and I was going to learn from everyone.

Wisdom words and art photos from the intrepid, artistic souls who gathered for Studio in the Sky 2011, Mabel Dodge Luhan House, Taos, New Mexico.

During our final presentations, I recorded the comments from our individual presentations.  As I journeyed back home, my semi-organized mind kicked in and thought it would be fun to combine some photos from the workshop and our last words together in the studio.

The photos and quotes are in random combination - I'm not THAT organized.

Blogs from our workshop friends are on the right.

If you would like to know more about the workshops - contact Sas Colby - the amazing artist/teacher/coach/designer of Studio in the Sky workshops.
