Fun Art Collaboration

June 15, 2018 § 2 Comments

In a couple more months I’ll be sharing the results of work on the big painting commission I mention in the recent WordPress Photo Challenge:  PLACE IN THE WORLD

Last weekend I collaborated with my multi-talented friend, Annie –  WordPress blog:   CURIOUS MIND GARDEN

Annie recently took an online poetry class. The final project required collaboration with another artist. She wrote a poem from SUNDAY BRUNCH  – a gouache painting in my website Gallery – and I made the following painting from one of her new poems:  “Self Portrait as Plate Spinner”PlateSpinner2-pierrmorgan

It’s 8 x 10″, using gouache (“goowash”, an opaque watercolor) & Prismacolor pencils. I work things out in stages on tracing paper – first pencil, then committing to the lines by inking over them with a Micron pen – transferring images to the final paper using a light table, so I’m not having to sketch over and over and erase directly on the final paper.PlateSpinner4-pierrmorganPlateSpinner-final-pierrmorgan2

Ta-da!

Have a great weekend and week ahead…involving a collaboration?!  ~ Pierr

Tooting my horn here…rather, someone ELSE tooted my horn and made a YouTube video of my Etsy Shop fabric jewelry displays: HAND-Stands, CACTUS-Stands, TREE-Stands…

And super thanks to all of you readers who have clicked on links to my shop and website and passed them on to friends. I really appreciate it!

Woo-hoo! More cake and punch for everyone!! ~ xo Pierr

Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

May 10, 2018 § 14 Comments

I grew up in Seattle in the trees…WPC-place-in-the-world2

…observing birds and critters, making meals for fairies with maple seeds and berries. If I could have finagled it, I would have lived inside a tree. Our family house was big, but the eight of us filled it to capacity. I spent most of my time in this gazebo on the hillside. Every place I’ve lived since has had a cozy bird’s nest feel. Even now in Spokane.Moon1WPC-place-in-the-world1

I’m also working on a huge painting commission that’s taking up my entire drawing table (and can’t be shared till it’s done), so I created an area where I paint in small sections, easier to manage…WPC-place-in-the-world11…with a view to what’s going on outside my PLACE IN THE WORLD.WPC-place-in-the-world9WPC-place-in-the-world8WPC-place-in-the-world4WPC-place-in-the-world6
