The Week Links: 3


Join me every Sunday when I will share some of my favorite links I discovered in the previous week.
Week 1 
Week 2

And here is Week 3...


Danny Gregory shares the story of outsider artist James Castle, which truly illustrates the power and magic of art. Danny also talks about how art has effected and continues to impact his life.

Stacey Caron, president of Spellbinders, shares her 5 tips for craft room bliss. Take the time to read through the very many comments as well, as her readers are sharing their tips too. And be sure to follow her in the weeks to come as she gives us an inside view of the creation of her new studio.

If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know that I am a lover of rust. France Papillon posted on her blog an easy to follow recipe for rusting paper. Love the image she included to illustrate the process.

Ronda Palazzari shares a series of helpful tips on how to find art lessons and art classes that will work for you -- even if you are a bit hesitant. Love her suggestion that this is the time to step a bit outside of your own comfort zone.

Love the format of this post from Lelainia Lloyd on her blog Tattered Edge. She share her "currents" in categories of creating, reading, watching, listening, and more. Hmmmm...this might make a good collaborative blog project for somebody to host.

I have always loved the work of Jeane Meyers and had the pleasure of meeting here several times. She has recently been interviewed by Deanna Elaine Piowaty from Combustus Magazine and I was enthralled as much by her explanation of her process and approach as I was by the amazing abstract work that was included in the post.

Help Rose Howard create a sky full of stars by joining her collaborative project. All it takes to be a part of it is some imagination and a little star!

Some great links. Jeanne Meyers is one of my favorite abstractionists. I can get lost in those colors and non colors. She is so interesting. I love the way she has no fear about covering up work she no longer relates to. Very brave. Mine sit in piles once they are rejected........a lesson to be learned here.

LOVE your week links but, with last week's and the Buried Treasure, it will take me a while to get to these.

They did teach me some things.

And I like the tip about making rusty tissuepaper, until now I painted the rust.

I also follow Jeanne Meyers. I can stare at her work for hours. I was struck by them from the first moment I laid my eyes on one of her pieces. It was a really great article! I would love to be a fly on her wall and watch her as she works, I find it so fascinating!
