Now that school is out for holiday's been so much fun surfing the web and checking everyone's latest artwork out! Wow...there is some good stuff out there!! Kime Buzzelli is an awesome artist whose watercolors are so pretty. I love the colors and the girls in the paintings seem like they are real models. I adore her paintings and I believe she does clothing too. You can check out more of her work on this link. (Once there, click on the title on the left side of the site to view each painting.

Moving on...I checked out some of my other faves...Anahata Katkin is one of my favorites. She seems like such a cool lady...I wish I could take one of her classes. Hmm...maybe I see a trip to an art class happening... Here's some of her pictures. She sells a lot of her work to do collages which I'm definitely going to invest in this year. Her site is under My Favorite Websites below. Her artwork is also very 'colorful' which I love. Very visual and fun art! I'm so glad we are not the only freaks out there!!!

My favorite blog and of course LOVE the artwork is Izabella's Blue. Once again...the color is so vivid. But, it's not just her artwork that gets me, it's also her poetry, songs and videos on her blog. Her work seems so mystical and fascinatingly haunting to me. It kind of draws you in and makes you think on a whole different level. Here are some of her beauties:
Aren't they gorgeous?!!! I wish I had that kind of talent. As for me, I'm continuing to work on my techniques. I have no idea what my style is! I wish it could be like Izabella's, but alas when I create, it never looks dark and cool like that. My work leans more towards the romantic and/or sarcastic, but usually frou-frou no matter how hard I try not to!!

Since I've had time, I created some stuff. I think right now I'm really into pop art and the Andy Warhol thing. The first ATC is titled "Crushed" and has translucent blue and green beads on the top and bottom that look really cool. Next is my fun retro pin-up ATC - these are so fun to make ;-) And of course, my token 'romantic' piece titled "Hidden Passion".'s time to go and make more of a mess in my craft room...cheers!!

Well...cheer season is somewhat over, so I finally get to focus on other things besides cheers, competition, drama, games, snacks, water, etc. I learned so much from this experience in 3 months it's unbelievable. My squad worked so hard and did so good that they made 1st place at competition. They were incredibly proud of themselves and even if that was all they got out of it, that makes me the happiest. A feeling of accomplishment and something positive to add to their life's resume.

So now next up is time to focus on my home and myself! I need to dust off my art studio (which is a table and cabinet in a little corner of my house!)...but still it's "My Art Studio" and get to work on some projects. I recently made some art tags for my first art-e-zine swap. The theme was "My Grandmother's Knickers". When I closed my eyes and thought about this...I envisioned lace, feathers, buttons, black velvet. So here's a picture of my tags that I mailed to Scotland. (I hope they made it with the postage strike and all over there!)
The artists on art-e-zine are simply amazing. You should go by and check out their ATC's and other mixed media work....truly gorgeous and amazing. I wish I could see and feel all of this art in real life, but I'll settle for pictures!

Gotta go get's a beautiful day!!

Entering unknown space

I feel like I'm entering into this vast world and am just a tiny bit intimidated. Will post later...
