For the use of finite creatures- Henri Fredric Amiel
I enjoy making ATC and Stephanie at Steff’s Stuff has a weekly ATC card theme. I was just saying I was looking for some routine. As I find the ATC to be a fun way to play with different color combinations and layouts, they are an excellent way to recycle my test images.
In other artistic endeavors this last week I have continued working of a couple of fairies from the book I reviewed. I have also started a study of faces, as I was not happy when I was working on the faces of the fairies. I am finding it very hard to get back into the swing of things after all the time off after New Years and Christmas.
I knew that this ATC needed to made the moment I saw that the theme for the week was for Hats. I had been thinking of trying to put together something with the hats, the parasols and the pocket watch. I kept thinking that it needed a teacup and flowers, but that would have made it very Allison in Wonderland. I did add the candle as the extra light really brightened up the parasols.

There are times when creativity needs to take a more practical side. The press to get all the holiday announcements and fliers out meant that yesterday my creativity was limited to the Business side of Art. I am very surprised by the number of Artists who sit back and take the view point of I created it, now they will come. Or in terms of our Gallery, we built it they will come.
I am not an expert in this, but I do recognize that it is important that I promote my own work, myself and my gallery if I want them to suceed. Connecting with other Artists, and organisations is an important part of that.
I am very happy to be working with Westfield’s Business Improvement District, I am also a part of Vallery Art Share. I am thrilled with the wonderful artists that I have come in contact with through Leah Piken Kolidas’ Art Every Day Month. The Small Art Show that today’s art is from supports Westfield Arts on the Green a 501(c) that promotes Arts, Artists and Performers in our local community. This show is set up as a 50/50 silent auction with 50% going to the non profit and 50% going to the artist.
The art work will be shown in the gallery for the duration of the show, and if the artist provides a digital image, the work will also be shown on our website. A win for both the Artist and the Non Profit.
I am always interested in where other artists have found inspiration, support and connections. Who has supported and helped you?
