On 'Burning Man' Art and Handspun Yarns

Here's a Sunday Art Shout-out just for you:

NYC's Agora Art Gallery's blog has a new post on 'Burning Man' Art and temporary community which may be of interest to you.

Why, Hello There, You! Come here much?

Alpaca, a portrait snapped by Maya whose Etsy Store of handspun and dyed yarns is well worth a visit, especially if you're a dedicated knitter who loves yarns with names like 'Red Delicious' and 'Asian Pear' so do drop in when you can - you'll find that Maya's photo prints and notecards are available as well.

Parma bicolor says, Hi there!

Hey! How'd that fish get into this gallery?

It's a little Parma bicolor fellow, floating in from Dreamyfish Art to invite you for a swim party where you can meet his cousins, the lovely tropical fish of Western Australia!

And you may wish to check out my Art Storefront when you have a mo...

Saturn Night~Purple Violets, a Children's Felt Activity Book

Here I sit typing late in the evening (after midnight actually), and wondering if you've ever seen this scanned image - it's the center page of one of my Felt Activity Books, this one made for Little Miss Violet whose Bubbles-In-Waiting Tutorial may be the gloriously sudsy solution for all your low-spirited spots and smudges!


Note: planet, lower left, is actually Dark Red in color and doubles as a pouch where the stars 'hide' when the book is put away, only to be placed up in the night sky next time around by a delightfully designing child.

Parental supervision is required until a suitable age; not for under 4 years old. Ordering is Limited, contact: judecowell at gmail dot com. Prices in $100 - $150 range (+ shipping) due to the individualism of each book; pages have a variety of scenes and activities. Exs: apples from tree to barrel; fish and starfish swimming with seaweed, numbers and letters, flowers, and more.

Your child's name becomes the book's title as in, Violet's Book. Fun!


And if you're partial to botanical fish portraits, please visit the gallery at Dreamyfish Art if you wish to fish a while and wiggle your toes in the water of Art.

>I prefer 'awhile' but I shall bow to convention. Maybe it's a Southeastern thing. Or perhaps it's only an innate laziness.

Secret Moon Art says: Hello, Indonesia!

Today I'm taking note of this blog's Flag Counter stats in the sidebar and Indonesia has visited Secret Moon Art more often than the US or other nations - how cool is that? ;p
