The 365 Flowers Project

Lots of good stuff happening. A grant I wrote for our local library came through! We now have funding for a large art project that will be part of the kid's summer reading program. More on that later, stay tuned!

In other news....

The Eric Carle art has been a hit at the library. These pictures are not good but you can get an idea of how it looks. The art is made construction paper and paint. I decided to use window markers to add background interest. It worked out well, letting the artwork take center stage. The camera didn't pick up on how cool these two media work together.

The camera had a hard time picking out a focus point. There are two other windows to this story but I gave up on my camera. Now for the second part of this story. I was asked to teach a children's art class on Carle-ish art at a local gallery.

I hope to get back to the flower project soon. My daughter's health is improving. My dog is the same, no worse so I'm hopeful. Today I have many family obligations to meet, no time for art. Don't feel to bad for me, one of the things on my "to do" list today is to try out a zip line at the environmental center where I work. Wish me luck!

The 365 Flowers Project

I've gotten off track with the daily flower making. Things at the environment education center have been busy. My oldest daughter has some scary health issues and my dog is also sick.
Life has been interesting!
This month our local library is celebrating Eric Carle.
I made some Carle-ish art for the occasion.
I created all the animals from Rooster's Off to See the World.
The artwork will be hung this afternoon.

The 365 Flowers Project

Day 99

Taking Photos or making art with a flower theme every day in 2016. Why, to be creative every day and get my butt inside my studio!

This flower is made of tissue paper and a glass ball. The full sunlight changed the look of the flower. The camera image of "blown out" color looks so different from what I saw with my naked eye. Also The orientation of the flower within the photo gives the flower a different feel. I thought it was an interesting experiment.

    I'm going to publish this post quickly before my internet connection drops ...again....
be back soon with more update posts.

Taking photos or making art with a flower theme every day in 2016.  Why, to get me in my studio!

Yeah! Photos are uploading!
Still having internet issues. Tech support says I'm dropping data packets. No fix as of yet.
We had snow over the weekend. I made flowers out of magazines during these cold gloomy days.

I'm not sure which I like better, making spiral flowers or photographing them.
Tomorrow will also be a multiple posting. I hope to catch up. May the internet gods smile on me.
