Last night I attended a really fun meeting organized by artist and friend, Ardith Goodwin who is teaching a class on collage, and wanted to experiment with the idea of the 'Exquisite corpse' parlor game from the early twentieth century. The idea is basically that one person starts a story, or piece of art, and then it is passed around to another person, who continues the process knowing very little of what the person before them wrote or put down. It was so fun, and has variable methods of execution that make the outcome a complete surprise. Last night the above pieces were started by one artist, and then passed around to three others before being finished by the original. Don't you want to play?

There is a figure drawing group on every other Thursday morning at Space 301 that just started...and yesterday was the first day. We are a small group, and so we decided that we were in the mood to draw a few longer poses, rather than more for a shorter time...ended up with four 25 min poses.(one of mine is on back side). It was such a nice morning. My friend, and fabulous artist, Conroy Hudlow, loaned me some paper today, and I loved it...it was either printmaking paper,or cover paper (?). Anyway it took watercolor in a different way than paper that I usually use, and it made my morning just that much more of a fun exploration! I need more of this paper. Hope you have a great weekend, I am taking a stoneware tile carving class from the very talented, Val Webb all day Saturday, and am excited about it.
If you live in the Mobile area, tonight is the fifth anniversary of Art Walk...is it possible? Yes! I think its going to be a fun night with lots of good openings; Paper Wasp = Wanda Sullivan, Joann Cox, and Mark Davis. MAC= Painted dresses & belly dancing. Wellborn Ideas= Micheal Mastro (sp) photography. Space 301 = SALSA a regional juried show, with lots of artists ...yours truly included. I think they are having five kinds of different music in the square ...fun night to get out in our downtown that has come so far! Have you noticed that there are always flowers around the light posts these days? Looking spry!
Enjoy the weekend... whatever your plans.

I have a commission for a birthday surprise painting. These girls spent hours and hours drinking tea, philosophising, and commiserating with each other (pre-kids). Still close friends they live far apart and now time together is spent on the phone...kids in the background, but still with a mug of tea. I hope you have a friend like that too, I do and its a great feeling to have a long history with a person who you liked so much long ago... and still do!
This is my first shot at this set-up and I will do a couple of them so she can choose which one suits her the best.
