Where I Go On Monday Nights...

The only thing one can give an artist is leisure in which to work. To give an artist leisure is actually to take part in his creation. -Ezra Pound, poet (1885-1972)

For those of us that paint or make art of any kind... creative expression is the very air we breathe... so having the time and space to create is more than precious... and good art supplies are a must to do so!

Santa Rosa is soooooo lucky to have Simmon and Robin Factor, the artist~owners of The Village Art Supply... This is one of my favorite stores and I so appreciate having this wealth of art supplies to choose from!!!

Here is Simmon at his studio!

inspiration and a focus to work on week after week...

So with art supplies in hand,
interactive acrylics that is...

This is a commissioned piece and I want to surprise its new owner, but give them, and you, a taste of what is unfolding! So more pictures to come!!!

By the way... I finished my magic box made from a gourd, apoxie sculpt, mirrored tiles, tempered glass, paper, iron sconce, jasper, and tourmaline!

Here it is!!!
