I submitted 2 entries to the Artistry Members Only juried art show and one of them was selected!! I submitted by picture of 3 pears and a rock painting. The rock painting was selected!! There were 299 entries and 80 selected!! The show runs from Oct 7 to Nov 17th in Bloomington.

The art center where I took my 6 week class from is having a juries art show that I can submit 2 pictures to hopefully be part of the art show. As you think back through my paintings, which ones stand out to you as my best?? 

More Rocks!!

I'm actually started a painting of something other than rocks!! Its a floral still life. I'll share it as soon as I get it done!! 


Watercolor ROCKS

Image
I need help naming my pictures. I'm thinking the series could be "Mom's (or Ferns) Dream Rockpile" but need names for the pictures. Does any particular rock or feature jump out at you when you look at a picture?

Would also like feedback on color of background and amount of background space between rocks.






Julie's Creative Table is Going Live Once Again

I am restarting my blog!! Yahoo!! I hope to keep you up to date on all my creative endeavors.  There will be a learning curve as I rediscover the basics of blogging, so please bear with me.

Visual Journaling

Image
I'm sure you are aware that I am in need of a new interst!! Not near enough different avenues to keep me occupied!! Before my journaling, beading emerged as a front runner! I will be adding a page with pictures of my past and latest bead projects!!
Okay, so I really don't need one more interest. But alas, it has happened. I took a weekend class at Maureen Carlson's Center for the Arts in Jordan MN (one of my favorite places in the whole wide world) taught by Barb Kobe (another interesting woman to be reckoned with!) And so, I'm off!

I'd like to share some of my first pages from my first journal and I'll try to explain techniques used and what the pages mean to me!

Go to the Visual Journaling Page (click on the page to the right) to see my creations!
