Andy Warhol 365 Takes

Currently reading "Andy Warhol 365 Takes"
One of my goals this year was to view and read more about art. I checked this book out of my local library.

Here is a scan of my favorite piece (so far) in this book. Based on one of my favorite works of art: Sandro Botticelli - The Birth of Venus, 1482

Andy Warhol - Details of Renaissance painting 1984
Acrylic and Silkscreen Ink on Canvas

This book is no longer in print and is quite expensive brand new. My library is closed for over a month (remodeling) so I get to keep this book around until the beginning of September. Fortunately, I have another library that is only a few miles in the opposite direction that I can frequent until then. Did you know that you can log in to your library account on-line and request books, DVD's, and other media from other libraries? I LOVE the library. =0)

Finally posted some of my art at eBay!

I have been meaning to do this for years and I finally worked up the nerve to do it. LOTS of artwork on eBay so I won't feel too rejected if it doesn't sell. =0)

Will be adding more artwork on a regular basis now. To see all the items I currently have on eBay, go to:

Writing Down the Bones

I seem to like reading about writing much more than I like writing! I have been writing quite a bit the last few months. For awhile I was writing every day, which I am working on doing again. This is a great book. Lots of ideas to come up with things to write about. I requested this book on-line from The Library Network and they sent it to my local library. This is a book I would like to have in my collection so I can refer to it when I am out of ideas.

Interesting that I do not feel any where near as self conscious posting my artwork as I do posting my writing! Probably why I have not posted any of it.

Still uninspired...

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

-Pablo Picasso

Finally finished a piece I started in 2007!
I have been doing most of my updates on Facebook. Go to:

Happy Holidays!

The urge, ability and vision to create is a solo endeavor.
-Linda Archinal

This is a skull I did for Christmas back in 2007. I have been blocked on and off since then so have not created too much. I have been posting more of my art on Facebook. Go to:

Artist's Block & Facebook

An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have. -Andy Warhol
I came across this quote when I was searching on-line to read about Artist's Block. I think about creating several times a day...every single day! But have spent very few hours during the last two years actually creating. Maybe deep down I feel like it is a waste of time and that is what is getting in my way. I am still encouraged by the fact that I have actually done ANY creating in the last few months. Here is another Betty Boop drawing I was working on back in May. My how time flies when you are blocked. =0)

Finally created something...Betty Boop

Nothing too original, just happy I actually started and finished something. I hope this is the end of my creative block. I WAS blocked for over 2 years!
