Tag Info for GSLOnly a few weeks to finish preparations for an upcoming community Art Show, Tag – You’re It! at Place des Arts. There will be empty banners that will fill up with individually designed Tags (drawing, printing, and/or collage). Will also be working with schools, preschool, and teens to fill up the banners. One of them will become a permanent display in the atrium at Place des Arts.

Colourful Dragonfly

Dragonfly watercolourHave dragonflies on my mind this week. While I finish up my latest fibre art dragonfly (will post when completed) thought I’d post a photo of a drawing/watercolour from two years ago that I had in my art journal.

Misty Green

2 Beaded Dragonfly 42My latest dragonfly creation is finished! 8″ wing span on a 6″ body. ‘Misty Green’ because of the colours of the wing. Wire and wrap techniques using ribbon fabrics. Beads on body for embellishment. Copper legs are new. I like the effect. In nature a dragonfly is a first class predator and has a 95% success rate when hunting. They know what they are after and how to get it. Their strength and longevity (been on the earth a long time) fascinates me.

Heart Flower

1 valentine flowerArt with the 5-7 year olds today was all about making a heart flower as a gift for Valentines Day. A design I came up with. Really happy with how it turned out. Kids loved it! Afterwards we wrapped them in tissue paper and secured it with a sticker just like at a real flower shop. Hope I always keep young at heART.

Art for Lunch

Placemat CompleteIn preparation for the Art for Lunch talk at Place des Arts earlier in the month I created an art place-mat with the tools one needs to create art (brush, palette, colour wheel….) pictured in place of fork, plate, etc. Many of the words from my talk are woven together to create a border for the place-mat image.

Feed the body food and drink, it will survive today. Feed the soul art and music, it will live forever.” Julie Andrews

Get Well Card

flower get wellJanuary. Time of colds, flu, and winter weather. Making a virtual get well card for a friend I picked a cheery image and paired it with an upbeat message; an inspirational quote by Chagall that is a favourite of mine. Nothing particular to do with getting well but everything to do with living life well.
