Emerging Artist; Chair-redefined

Is it lonely - or just simply alone? And what is the difference. This gorgeous and moody print makes me think - a lot. And the Polaroid platform makes it even more desirable. Ginger Caravan - where have you been hiding??? Down under I see.

Emerging Artist; Small Stakes

Everything from Small Stakes, a small Northern California publisher rocks my artistic world. Silk screens in two or three colors; simple defined graphic shapes. And $25. Are you serious???
The Echo Falls. On my wish list now!

I wish the transmission in my car was this pretty. Engine art - who would have thought. Thanks Jim Keaton!

Emerging Artist; Alunboy

Sometimes when I'm at the airport I get bored. Bored no more! Alunboy to the rescue. This drawing is hot...seriously. Stretch, kick...stretch a little more and Shop. And maybe a lunge.

Emerging Artist; Yes!

She writes yes into the sky. I feel a little yes coming on especially after I got into my car and the battery is dead again - for the third time in one year and I yelled a hearty NO!!!
I needed this whimsical and positive note.

Just Too Sweet

I like text. I like letters put together that say something nice. When I need inspiration I just peek over at I Heart It and I always find the perfect image. Today - I share it with you - my faithful followers. Be well.

Emerging Artist:Whales???

Wow - what a fab Flickr find today. I'm not positive - but I'm think that's a whale behind that forest of thick pines. Can you see it? Or am I just really ready for the weekend?

Emerging Artist; Speed Skating

Watching those skaters speed dizzy circles around that track thrills and inspires me and at the same time think it's just a touch crazy! Crashing into each other; passing in just the slimmest of spaces and pushing in the relay. So - in honor of the craziness let's focus on skate inspired art and cool things that jingle.

A personalized glass style with whimsical skates hanging just so. Simple and elegant me thinks.

Oh - I so want this! A locket with Olympics Love! Oh my......

How naughty and discreet plus really imaginative. Just when you thought you had it all...this light switch plate takes turning on a light to a whole new level.

Ok - just one more because this one surely couldn't be missed. A red coat, ice skates and a young girl creating swirly shapes...all in this charming print. Lovely.....and quiet...

Emerging Artist; Word of The Day

Is the word of the day SPECIAL or is it RED. Either way...this piece rocks. Thank you Terry Amstutz for sharing Dumpster Diving #93. Go garbage!

Emerging Artist; Lattice

Do you know how hard it is to make woodcuts. Oh my oh wrists hurt just thinking about it. This piece - is gorgeous. Thank you Anna Hepler.

Emerging Artist; Flying Away

Giant hands and an aspiring bullfighter. Is this the puppet that guides our life?

Emerging Artist; Heart Attack

An anatomical drawing may not be considered romantic but the sum of the parts; a sheet of hearts rendered in Renaissance style is quite romantic. A beating heart lives to tell a story of love and passion and hidden desire. An old fashioned ode to an ancient thought. Altered heart - hanging over your heart.

Emerging Artist; Do Not Bend

She looked strong, certainly able to handle the beast; a python of extraordinary powers, making its way; slithering softly, quietly over her hands. The woman didn't twitch, not even flinch, or wink, or cringe. Fear...not this femme fatale.

Emerging Artist; Metal and Bits

From Hardware Bangle to bolts and washers and nuts...what wonders coexist. Priceless relics and copper inspiration...sparkly jingle sounds wrapped around my wrist inviting conversation and warding off malevolent spirits.

Emerging Artist; Waiting

Matching orange sweater vests. Urban gray ends in a point. Waiting seems terminal. The car comes around the bend, Brett Amory safely at the wheel. The wait ends.

From feathered head to skin covered limbs my oversized bicycle takes me to the dark land where blackbirds sing and ravens haunt. The moors call out for Steam Machine - begging my presence.

Emerging Artist; Blue Monday

"Blue Morning, blue Monday...was it this Monday or the next.Disheveled bed mess do not fret, the morning may be blue, but by the time the day is done there is nothing more to do, an orange evening and you will be happy through and through".

Emerging Artist; He Was A Worthy Chick

Oswald was a worthy chick. Never got into too much trouble and minded his own business. Days were spent wandering the farm...growing feathers...eating feed thrown to him regularly. All in all - a good life; an ordinary life.

No name required when the horizon is waxy and the air is cold and waits with anticipation for a change. Wanderlust grips hold..tightly. Images lost in the distance. Untitled. Painting No. 7

Thursday, February 4, 2010


Tangled in Formation, storm clouds in my sight, dreams of escape hang discreetly in my waking thoughts. Five delicate friends transforming....

From Freetown

"This basket was filled with different kinds of cleaning stuff like soaps and brushes. While she came closer, her right hand grasped into her basket and she took out one of the brushes. While her eyes kept watching me she brought the brush close to her ear and posed like she was holding a mobile phone". Rini Hartman. She Is Our Hero.

Animals Can Dance

Bears do the salsa and bats hang around; crocs cha cha and owls act coy in this imaginative and surreal parallel universe. True romantics they are - just never noticed. Julia Pott humorously features their dancing talents and flirtatious flings. Bats and Birds and Bears Oh My! If You're On The Dance Floor....who woulda thought.
