“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” — Zig Ziglar

Feeling overwhelmed? I can relate!

  • What is the PARTICULAR of the social topic – BULLYING – that you and your partner came up with yesterday? 

What imagery did you come up with that truly begins to develop the idea of the social commentary on BULLYING? How does it successfully work? AND –  How do you feel your composition successfully uses the GOLDEN MEAN and imagery to explain the ideas of bullying – how to deal with it, fix it, stop it, educate about it? THINK and EXPLAIN your answers.

I LOVE Egon Schiele’s drawings…


  • 5.1Ac: Evaluate, select, and apply methods or processes appropriate to display artwork in a specific place.
  • Knowing you have the options of REALISM in colors or going out on your own in choices of colors… what do you see as advantages of the direction you are planning on going? I want you to think about both approaches.

What ideas do you see coming out from others as you develop your own ideas? How can you see working with OTHERS in a COMMUNITY as being beneficial to the development of your art?

A New Look to a Old Tool (and New Artwork from Old Materials)

Well oh well… the risk was taken and the edits have been made. Switching the look of something that I have been working on for 3 years was a difficult thing to do, but I felt it needed some updates.

Please let me know your thoughts about the new look of the page. I have cleaned up the PAGES portion (now at the top of the window) and grouped a few together. I am still thinking about more changes to the sidebar… remove my beautiful face, switch places with this badge and that image among other things.

Always looking for FEEDBACK – it is the hinge that holds all learning and change together (thanks Janie – stole that one).

For your viewing pleasure – a new artwork… it is “Untitled” as of yet and is also not quite finished… Enjoy!
