Art Abandonment. Let's do this in 2016 ! Share Random Acts of Art.

I came across this idea from a book on Amazon called:

By Michael deMeng and Andrea Matus deMeng

So here is how to play if you wanted to join in:
  1. All you have to do is make a piece of art.  (as simple or as elegant as you like)
  2. Write a little note on it explaining that it is a gift 
  3. Also mention that if the finder would like to share info about its fate they can contact you directly i.e. email.  Then you can share the info with us if you are so inclined.  Its not a bad idea to leave you're web address contact info…you never know…you might have created a new patron.
  4. Photograph what you're leaving behind
  5. Then leave it…walk away…run…try not to get caught.
  6. Then on Facebook share the location and photo of your gift with the rest of us.  Here's the group address:
  7. Keep your fingers crossed that someone lets us know what became of it.  I certainly doubt that everyone will take the time to inform the group.  A few artists have already been contacted by the "finders".

You can join on Facebook too. 

The basic idea of this Facebook group is simple:
  1. Create a piece of art
  2. Photograph the art….preferably in the location it will be left.
  3. (Optional) Leave a contact tag, so that the “finder” can get in touch with the “abandoneer” if they choose to..
  4. Post the photograph on the Art Abandonment Facebook Group
  5. Wait.  With any luck the “finder” will make contact.
  6. If contacted by the “finders,” post the response on the Art Abandonment group page
  7. Repeat.

Holiday reflections and traditions. New and old.

The holiday season is often a time to reflect. Thinking about your holiday traditions and making new traditions as your family grows smaller or bigger. 
It's fun to start a new beginning with the holiday season. Do something different that brings you joy. At the end of this year and throughout the new year. 

A photography challenge.

Missing your loved ones. I make memorial beads to keep your loved ones close.

Winter months. Less light. Less sun. The holiday season can be both happy and sad for some. Recently I've been asked to make a custom order of glass beads with a loved ones ashes sprinkled in them. The end result can  can be very healing. Wearing a piece of jewelry or just carrying a single bead in your pocket gives a sense of closeness to our loved ones who are no longer with us on earth. 
Below is my latest custom order. 
To learn more about this process, please visit my website and email me with your questions.
