I have started a new group on FB “Artist Helping Artist Network”, I hope this group takes off and There is a lot of communicating between artist from all over, Here in Buffalo and Western NY but also other states and even countries.  Talking about how they market their artwork, how they work together with in their own communities etc.  I truly believe that Artist with in a Community need to work together to help the Artist Community grow because if they don’t that Community won’t grow it will stagnate and die. There will be to much in fighting and cliques being built “East side” vs “West side”, “Contemporary” vs “Photography”  vs “Realism” etc., and then again we have those who say if don’t have formal training you can’t possibly be an artist.  What ever happen to apprenticeships or born in talent?  With all these cliques and inner fighting the Art Community will die out,  I have seen it happen and it is a very sad thing to watch.  Because Art is really the center point to many economies  and to many education plans.

Art can bring tourist into a town/city, it gets children and teens off streets and give them something to do on the days they don’t have school. Art has saved lives, healed those who are sick, mentally and physically.  I have always said “Art is the Music to my Soul”!   If I get down or feeling like I am losing control of my life, I shut myself into a room and lose myself into an art piece, my art works what ever is bothering me out onto that canvas and I come out feeling refreshed and all ready to face what ever is stressing me out.  Or I can take my camera and just go off into solitary walk and just lose myself into taking pictures of what ever hits me at the moment.  I meditate as I take those pictures, losing myself into the moment.   Again, I return refreshed and ready to return to what ever it is I need to face.

I know others who do the same thing but with music, beading, wood working, dancing, writing, etc.  What is it that can cause you to go into the “moment of focus” and then feel totally ready to face a problem?

Beading, A Different Type of Art:

Today I worked on some beading which I haven’t done in years.  I hadn’t created created beaded art in years because of my hands and carpal tunnel. Yet, due to a group I belong too needing baskets for a silent auction I decided to work with beads again as well as paint a couple of pictures. Here are the beaded objects so far I have created:

Uni-Sexed Earning
Created this single earring out of charms I had.
Necklace and Earrings
Gun Metal – glass beads of cobalt blue and ruby red.
Charm
A fairy Charm on necklace

 

I created a skull and Cuff Uni-sexed single earring out of some odds and ends I had in my supplies. You can see the finished product to the left.

 

I also created a necklace and earring set out of gun metal and glass beads.  The beads are Cobalt blue and Ruby red. There is a fairy charm  which I found among my supplies at the end of the necklace I found that just made the necklace! you can see the result below.

If you would like me to create you something please feel free to contact me.  My wife also creates beautiful jewelry and rosaries (as you saw in a previous blog).

We both take commission requests, as well as I take them for paintings.
