Pictures are Worth 1000

So, I have to say one of my favorite artistic sites ever is Worth 1000. It is a veritable visual smorgasbord! They have revolving contests for artists, writers and any other creatives to flex their creative muscles. I love the end products, and I'm sure you might be quite familiar with them. Some of the photoshop contest entries are so well created, people mistake them for real photos.Here is an advanced piece in the photoshop Contest titled "Relaxation."

Here are a few I have entered in the past. If you have a yearning to mess with a celebrities face or enter a logo contest, check out Worth1000.com

Suddenlink Art Class

Painting and wine class

So we had a blast creating Dorothy's shoe at the Cascades with the Suddenlink team. Those folks know how to have a good time,plus there were some very talented painters in the group. I was so impressed with not only their skills but also their great attitudes. I love classes like that! It makes painting so much fun! So here are a few pics ...Enjoy!

279 Artisan Trail show pics

It was a beautiful and cool weekend filled with classic cars, amazing artwork and fun. I got to see the new schoolhouse that was moved to Ben Wheeler from Emory. They did an amazing job refurbishing that place! Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of it, but I did get to take full advantage of the upstart car show going on at the same time as the artisan show. I didn't get many pictures but here are the ones I did get!

Work in progress

Is it like a wedding dress, unlucky to show it before the big day? Or is like watching a plant grow, small changes along the way in attendance for the big day of ripening? When will this cotton duck be ready for the plucking? Take a looksy but please leave only good luck and the hopes for a grand final product.

I referenced about a million pics of hot air balloons and LOVE the look of the morning sun kissing the ground as it rises to meet the day. The shadows it throws are amazing and all the colors just seem to scintillate. I have some buildings to put in before the balloons get painted.

A Work in Progress

I find that life is like a web page... a work in progress. You're never quite finished even when you think you've finally completed something. My paintings are all works in progress, always waiting for more paint and a better idea. Now I'm supposed to write the main article in the February issue of the County Line. I'm no prolific literary prodigy nor should anyone look to me for grammar lessons. I wonder what makes something finished... Endings are scary, when you get to the end of a movie you get mildly dissapointed that it's almost over. My paintings are never finished. I'm hoping that this blog goes on forever.. he he my monotonous blatherings keeping people somewhat glued to thier computers at 3 am, with nothing better to do. I could not surmise that reading anything I write would be top priority for anyone yet here I am pecking away at these keys..
I digress. I will try to do is to keep you informed of my expeditions in the art world, not that they are far and reaching yet, but they might be in the future. Perhaps to keep working on your own pieces whatever they may be and let you on my creative process. Or maybe it's to inform you of my own aha moments. My main goal though is to inspire those that read this.I want you to walk away from my words and start your own blogs, create your own art or whatever... I don't care just as miss Madonnna would say, "Express yourself."
I promise to throw in a few rants, a couple tantrums and stories about my kids, family and dogs, cause what kind of mom would I be if I didn't go on about my Gerber babies...I'll try not to discuss religon or politics.... try being the operative word....
With all that said, let the games begin... Hope to keep you inspired....
