Borrego Springs Sculptures

I’d previously seen pictures of Ricardo Breceda’s famous metal sculptures, and really looked forward to seeing them in person.  As I shared in my previous blog post, I’d driven by his outdoor art gallery while en route to Borrego Springs. But, seeing so many huge, metal sculptures of ancient dinosaurs scattered across the desert was […]

Road 2 California Quilt Show, part 5

This is the fifth and final installment of pictures I took at the recent Road 2 California Quilt Show in Ontario, California. I hope you enjoyed seeing the quilts as much as I did. While photographs don’t tell quite the same story as “up close and in person”, they surely give an idea of the […]

Road 2 California Quilt Show, part 3

…continuing the series of pictures I took at the Road 2 California Quilt show. My favorite quilt of the show is included here, and honestly even choosing a favorite seems silly with so many beautiful quilts. But, something about the techniques and materials used in this barn really brought it to the top of the […]

Road 2 California Quilt Show, part 1

Visiting a major quilt show for the first time, and one of the biggest in the country at that, was quite an experience. I joined my sister-in-law, Jeanne, at the Ontario Convention Center this past Saturday, for the Road 2 California Quilt Show. There were three huge rooms full with either vendors selling fabrics, quilt […]

Journaling Tags

The gallery shows pictures of seven 3″x5″ tags I made recently for use in a future Junk Journal. Each tag is a color of the rainbow and has its own style and embellishments. The purple tag opens to reveal pages for journaling and is held shut by an embellished clip, while the yellow tag has […]

First Go at Mixed Media Art on Canvas

I decided to have a go at mixed media on canvas yesterday and arrived at this result. The start was my photo of the row boat printed onto flat finish paper, the rest was willy nilly… I had no plan, just layered as I went and arrived at this scene. Materials used: photo, dupioni silk, […]

“Seafarer” Brown Paper Bag Junk Journal

My newest Junk Journal is made from a brown paper bag and two envelopes. My goal was to make this journal look old and well-used. I’m calling it “Seafarer”, and am imagining a sea captain using it to keep his pictures and notes in.  The pictures are from a group of postcards from Catalina Island, […]

Brewery Artwalk, Spring 2018

(28 photos) I made a brief stop at the Brewery Artwalk in downtown Los Angeles this past Sunday. I didn’t have too much time to wander the fascinating artist lofts and studios, but did catch a few. I must admit that while exploring the artistic creativity that’s in abundance there, the historical setting catches my […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

My interpretation of this week’s Photo Challenge of the word Atop is of an artist, holding the water color painting I ended up purchasing, as he stood atop Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. My son’s fiance, Loren, and I had walked a great distance up a steep hill, and climbed many steps to reach this […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wish

My entry into this week’s Photo Challenge topic of Wish was taken in downtown Los Angeles. My wish is the same millions of others wish for, that we’re not sorted and classified into categories. We’re one, simply human. ~SueBee

Art Along the Coast

I took a short vacation a few months back and explored the area along Southern California’s coast. Driving south from my hometown of Orange, there remain a few places that aren’t lined with housing tracts bumper to bumper. So refreshing! While keeping an eye out for art in public places as I drove along, I found […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
