My digital art business card

HELLO BEAUTIES! THESE STROKES ARE DIGITAL BUT THIS PORTRAIT COULD REMIND SOME BEAUTIFUL MATISSE ARTWORKS. CONGRATS RITA!

Rita Deutsch Art

Using my digital art as my business card. Somehow when I tell my friends, colleagues and strangers that I meet in the galleries, that this is from a digital image, they are rather shocked.  Digital is so crisp, vibrant and crystalline, it creates its own audience – without effort. Lately I’m resorting to canvas and paint, to restore my once clear vision of what Art should be.   Who knew it would come to this?

A week of indigo

💙💜 WELL DEARS! AS YOU ALREADY KNOW, THE COLOUR COUNTS A LOT

Flextiles

It was definitely a blue fingernail week last week! It started with a couple of days in Hove with a wonderful group of textile friends who try to get together every couple of months to do a little felting or stitching.

This time, Barbara was rash enough to offer her garden to do some indigo dyeing – though some parts (usually featuring pale limestone!) were definitely out of bounds to people carrying dripping blue fabric. 🙂 The weather was glorious – the last two days of our prolonged heatwave – and the food and drink was plentiful and excellent. Barbara even baked a belated birthday cake for Carol, my partner in Women of the Cloth.

In between the eating, drinking and laughter we even found some time for dyeing, and everyone produced some great work.

When I got back home, it was time to filter my second indigo extraction from…

Regency Pashmina Dress, Part I: Design and Fabric

HI LOVELIES ! ISN’T IT REALLY A WONDERFUL TISSUE ? 😍

It's All Frosting...

A few months ago I was invited to join a friend at the The Governor’s House in Hyde Park, Vermont for a Sense and Sensibility Weekend, which is basically a weekend of Jane Austen-y activities at a historic house (built in 1895 but it’s a copy of a 1753 home), including tea, a dinner dance, and a sleigh ride! It sounded like fun, but I immediately knew that I would need to supplement my Regency wardrobe, which until now has consisted solely of evening gowns and springtime-appropriate daywear. Clearly, I needed something for winter!

I wanted to use a more winter-appropriate fabric than my usual cotton, not only for warmth but also because I just thought something more textured would look better in the setting. The problem was, it was difficult to find lightweight wool in a pretty color at any price point, much less one that I was willing…

Sonia Delaunay – Creative Minds Art History Project

💠THIS KIND OF FASHION IS FOREVER. HI DEARS! SONIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOR ME ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS. BEHIND HER DESIGN, THE PENCILS, CANVAS AND DRESSES, NEVER WERE FRONTIERS, HER ART WAS WHOLE AND INTEGRAL. ONE OF MY FAVORITE DESIGNERS!

Allise Nicole's Artistic Explorations

I live in Michigan, and we have been having some wild weather over the past couple of weeks, including over 10 snow days! Since I teach a couple art classes in the program I run in addition to coordinating all the goings on, I still have to get work done on snow days, just without my fun project break :(. I was excited to finally get to host my classes again this week and share a long awaited project with my group! This week’s artist was Sonia Delaunay.

sonia-delaunay

Sonia Delaunay was an abstract artist and designer who not only painted but worked in fabric and costume design, and in 1964 became the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at The Louvre in Paris!

Ma’ Girls are Dressed

👀👒WELL SISTERS, AS WE CAN SEE, THE QUESTION IS SKETCH AND CHOOSE OUR OWN OUTFIT.

Arts and Whatnots by Mymy

My goodness! Ma’ gorg’ girls were naked for too long, they must’ve hated me. I found out my Fashion Sketchpad was kept cold inside my book storage and I haven’t worked since the first (and the last) post in here. Sorry girls, I promised you’d be glamorized but yo’ mama was doing all sorts, she totally forgot she has bought a sketchpad. But yo’ mama didn’t forget one thing: her dreams of becoming a ‘fashion designer  and a stylist’.

I need some more practice. And am’a do a lot, just in case I get to fashion school and I can show evidences of such pursuit.

Enough drama gorg’ mama, since ma’girls been found, let’s get dressed! O’right?! 🙂

I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. – Victor Frankl
