Athens Art on the Square

Written by

September 8th is almost here, which means it's time for Athens: Art on the Square.  If you have never been, you need to go! It's a great art show around the courthouse in Athens, AL.  I'll not only have my jewelry and paintings that you are used to seeing, but some new things as well, including some monster paintings and some prints.  I'm even bringing a greeting card rack to sell some old and new cards.  There is music, food and tons of art.  Come out and say hello.  If it rains, we'll be in the Athens State College gym.  Look forward to seeing everyone!!

Art Work at Albany Bistro in Decatur

Written by

I dropped off some Deadly Sin girls to the coolest little bistro in the area.  Albany Bistro contacted me about hanging some artwork and I took some by Friday.  If you haven't been by there you need to go. The place is charming, the atmosphere is relaxing, the food is wonderful, and now my paintings are there. :)

On another note, I've been getting prints of some of my paintings and journals together to sale.  They are almost ready!  Stayed tuned and keep checking back.

On my children's book , I'm going to submit my first query this weekend.  Probably be my first rejection too, but you have to start somewhere, right.? I know in my heart, that this book will get published, even if I publish it myself.

Exciting News and Gallery Tours

Written by

So in addition to being in the middle of my Monster book, and finishing up the pages for that; and researching publishers out there to figure out where to submit, I was asked to put some of my jewelry and paintings at the very cool 16 Main Gallery in Madison, AL.  Miss Apathy is there along with some of her friends and a good assortment of my jewelry and t-shirts.  They also have some wonderful art there from their other artists. I'm even planning some classes there for this coming fall!  Maybe even a kid's monster class! 

So Thursday, July 26, 2012 is the 20th Annual Gallery Tour in the Huntsville area.  The local galleries, along with the Huntsville Museum of Art will be open for you to come visit and see the latest art in the area.  My good friend Everett Cox will be doing two bronze pours in his foundry at Lowe Mill.  So come out and check it out.

Leaving this post with a new monster I just finished for my book.

Blogging Again

Written by

Feels good to be blogging again.  Been forever since I was able to really get in and talk about what I've been working on.  I started this year taking a few online classes.  One particular on Fairies, but when I tried to sit down and draw fairies, they wouldn't appear. I guess they were being the mischieveous beings they were.  So instead what came out but these silly monsters.  First one, then another, then others.  Filled up that journal with them and decided there must have been a reason to have been overtaken so much by them.  They even invaded my jewelry room.  So that took me off another path to maybe write a children's book.  I sat down with a friend, Brianna Kulpa, who helped me form up that idea. I was off on that path, when I stumbled upon this awesome band, The Wiggly Tendrills.  They wrote me an amazing song, inspired by the draft of my book.  Amazing song that really captured the idea of the book, which is how it's ok to be different.  Take a listen here.  So now I'm drawing out the official illustrations to the book, so that I can submit it to some publishers, which, by the way, I dont know much about.  Anyways, that's the path I'm on now.  I'll continue to share more of the monsters with you as I go.  Thanks for tuning in and welcome back to the blogworld! -Leslie

Changes to Blog and a new website are coming

Written by

Updating my blog lately has become almost impossible. Either my internet or Typepad (my guess is Typepad) is just not cooperating. So I'm going to be going to a new blog and I'm also getting a new website where I'll have a shop for my jewelry and paintings. Lots of exciting changes coming for my art on the internet. Check back in a few weeks for more information!!!

Art Journaling Video

Written by

I'm finally posting this video I made a few weeks back of a page in my Bug Eye Journal. That journal was so effortless for me, unlike so many others.  I had fun with each page. I'm planning on making a video of a flip through of it to share next.  Meanwhile, enjoy, though be warned, it's kinda long.

Welcome Back...

I have been neglecting my blog in a major way.  It hasn't been intentional, I just got busy I guess.  Also went through a art slump where I wasn't making much art.  But it's a new day and a new blog post.  Since my last post I have been playing in watercolors, doing online classes, starting new blogs, finished my google eyed journal (which I'll post in a video), oh and yeah, doing some video recording of some art.  Just playing really and trying to figure it out.   But today's post is going to be about Miss Lucy, my newest Saint.  You can read about her here on wikipedia.  If she feels a bit solemn it's because I was having trouble getting out of an artistic block, so she got me out.
