Projects/Art

Art; One of my favorite forms of expression. Back in high school, working with my hands really helped me cope with a lot. 

I don't really do much anymore, but if you are struggling with anything, you should give it a  try. You may end up making something beautiful, and it can't hurt!

  2. WOW....you did an AWESOME job on this. YOU should be very proud of it. Carving stone is one art form that I haven't tried yet. I might just have to give it a whirl now. You have inspired me kiddo...thanks!!!

  6. Your turtle shows that you are a gifted sculptor. Maybe you could apply for an art scholarship to a local college.

  12. I really liked the Raku piece - it's beautiful. You should definitely apply for an art scholarship - or maybe you can get a job at an art studio and be like an apprentice.

    Good job. I'm following you know - can't remember if you are following me and that's how I found you. If you'd like to follow me, I'm at: http://familyliteracyandyou.blogspot.com
    http://givingnsharing.blogspot.com

    If you aren't on mombloggersclub.com you might look at that or some of the other blogging clubs - you can find things to review that way. You might also find some of the other art companies and maybe studios and ask them if you can do a review for them in exchange for supplies or maybe a membership (I'd do a series of articles or reviews for them) if you have a studio or something in your area.

  14. Amanda, you have great talent for art. I hope to see more postings on your work in the future.

  15. Amanda...I am wow'd! I love the Raku piece. I did some of the pottery in high school (a million years ago) and it really was a great way to release and be creative. I still think about the scene in Ghost every time I see a piece of pottery or clay work. I've always wanted to take more classes at our tech college as my two sisters did, but now my joints are too locked to do this because of health junk. I missed my chance.
    very impressive with the cage too! You are very creative and talented. I agree...you need to get into art school somewheel or try to do an apprenticeship so others learn to know your work. You are so young and have so many options! I know most of this is for your own pleasure? but dont miss your chance to leave your mark on the art world...it would be a shame not to keep going to classes. What about having a donation page? I know some might not like that but I have seen it on other blogs. I wish I could help but not right now.

  43. After finally getting treatment for my bipolar, I lost the will to create. I used to scrapbook and I treated it like an art form...I wanted my pages to mean something.

    I have to keep reminding myself sometimes that the alternative to staying on treatment would cost me a whole lot more than losing the art.

    But, it's still hard.

    ReplyDelete
