1  UNITED STATES / Vermont / Printmaking Demo Shout Out on: June 07, 2007 05:54:52 PM
Hey all,

Just wanted to get the word out to anyone in the area that 'my' store is doing a series of free printmaking demos this June & July.  We also are hoping to get some more print or paper-collage art up on the walls (framed stuff best at this point, or if it's clothing, clothes hangers work too...just call & make arrangements)
We have Speedball sending their demonstrator Tonya up next weekend for a silkscreening & then blockprinting demo (Fri June 15th 4-6 & Sat June 16th 11-1, respectively.)  I'm very much looking forward to this one because the boy and I have both wanted to do silkscreening for a long time, and even though I sell the supplies, I haven't made time to do it on my own.  Even with the great tutorials here.

Also there will be a monotype (with oils) demo, a hands-on-printing-for-kids demo and then a papermaking demo, between now and the end of July. 

All free demos except the one next Friday (June 15th)  will be on Saturdays from 11-1, call for the dates.  You don't need to sign up, just show up.

Looking forward to seeing some local Craftsters!

I agree, that's a lovely piece.  I'd love to see how you did it, because I do hope someday, somehow, I'll manage to make myself a skirt.

Hey there,

My best friend came all the way from Atlanta back to Burlington to have her wedding, and it was held right next to the boardwalk.  The Boathouse at the time was available for a nice small reception area (it is pretty small!) which fit just right for her event. 

There are of course lots of sweet little churches tucked away in Chittenden county.... Just past the williston sprawl is the pretty chill village of Williston, which has a nice small brick church.  Etc.

 good luck and congratulations!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Advice on getting clients for Mural Painting please!!! on: January 01, 2006 06:02:04 AM
If you do get a mural gig, make sure you can pack all your necessary paints and so forth in something easy to carry and easy to work from.  Also get specifics on how long you can work in the space, and at what times.  If you haven't done any murals yet that you can photograph to show as examples, see if you can talk any friends/relatives/non-profits into letting you do something for them. 

I am just about to complete a small fireplace mural which I agreed to do for barter.  I hadn't done any mural work before, the 'client' had simply seen a few of my paintings on display where I work.
It's been great, but I learned real quick...bring everything you think you won't need, because you'll need it!

And take pictures of all the steps as you go!

good luck!

That makes a much more flattering neckline than a turtleneck. Kudos for the zipper.  I fear them, though I keep collecting them to use someday.

Thank you, the mouse is actually the very first one I did.  I'm going to go back to using that pen for the next set.

okay, finally got the images up again.  I think so, anyway.

That first trio would look good REALLY BIG too.  (When you get more cash again!)

I used to build big panels to paint on, something to consider if you've got smooth plywood at hand...

very impressive, and definitely shows patience!   I can't keep a pattern constant with stippling to save my life. 
It would make a beautiful print, too.  Might as well get as much out of it as you can!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / (mostly) daily creature drawings on: December 07, 2005 06:19:11 PM
This project is something my mister suggested for my site.  I've been at it for just under a month, and he's updating it for me every few days or so.  Thus the (mostly) daily.  The drawings are in sets of twelve, changing the medium each time I have a new page.  I'm going to keep it b&w for now, because I'm trying to push my compositions AND contrast. 

I just finished the second set, and would love some feedback.

and here's the link:  go to http://www.obscurius.org/sweet_enemy/ and then click on 'creature a day'

Thanks for looking!
