Bon Weekend

It’s been a good week thus far. I received my letter of acceptance for the 2012 Charleston Farmers Market season and I’m thrilled to be returning! I also sold my sweet baby blue dragon tote this week. I gave it a great big hug before sending it off to it’s new home.

I’ll end the blogging week with some photos my friend Amy shared with me last night of an exhibition at the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco featuring Chinese artist Huang Yong Ping. The piece is called ‘Wu Zei’, a cuttlefish-octopus hybrid measuring 25 metres. It is hung over the museum’s main chandelier (known as Medusa chandelier) allowing the head to glow.

Read more about this installation on the Oceanographic website and Art Culture.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

Bon Weekend – Favorite places

My grandmother used to always tell me that you can judge a city by how they honor their dead. Despite our city’s imperfections I think we do pretty well in this department. We were downtown yesterday for the Charleston Farmers Market jurying (I missed the in-season vendor day as I was prescheduled for another event). We spent some of the downtime yesterday at one of my favorite places in the world… Magnolia Cemetery. It was a perfect blend of sunny and overcast and we got some great shots, but I’ve only had time to edit a few.

Rosalie Raymond. She’s been one of my favorites since I first started visiting the cemetery.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend. I’ll have some new goodies to post next week and hopefully some more images from Magnolia!

Heather Jansch

A quickie post for today! A friend shared a photo of UK artist Heather Jansch‘s amazing driftwood horses and I had to pass the goodness and share them here!

Enjoy her work!

Monday, Monday

I’m very excited to share this new piece as it is the prototype for a new line in the shop. It will be available next week!

Pewter vinyl with a silk screened manatee and blue stitched lines. It is lined with a heavy linen/cotton blend fabric. The chain handles are upcycled from an old bag. The vinyl has an irridescent-like sheen to it so the manatee also changes color a bit.

I’m finishing another bag and will be in mostly full production with those and some other new items next week!

‘So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.’

I’m behind on posts this week. I’ll provide some lovely filler with what I like refer to as childhood toys grown up. Last January I posted Christian Faur’s ‘pointillist’ portraits and I have a few more, courtesy of DudeCraft.

First up is Joe Black , who recreates the famous self-portrait of artist Chuck Close using LEGOs. Please be sure to explore more of Chuck’s work at Artsy.

Here is the original self-portrait:

The next portrait is a re-visualization of a Chinese soldier boy taken by photographer Robert Capa which was used on the cover of LIFE magazine in 1938 when it covered the second Sino Japanese War. It is comprised of 5500 toy soldiers.

Joe Black also has some brilliant super hero portraits.

Look… I got something added to the new shop!

More to come…

The last Holy City Artists & Fleas this weekend

As many of you have heard, Eye Level Art is closing at the end of the month. The Holy City Artists & Fleas has been an event for many of the city’s wonderful independent artists, crafters and vendors to show and sell their work. This weekend is the final event, so please come out and support {that means buying, please} local artisans!

Charleston Farmers Market

Every weekend in December the Charleston Farmers Market is open Saturday AND Sunday! We’ll be back downtown in the morning, but I wanted to share today’s score from Sea Island Savory Herbs. I was tickled to no end with Danielle’s creation. She has several vintage goods bursting with succulents. Please check them out and take one home!

Bon Weekend

I’m so very thankful that the issues in my last post were resolved quickly and rather painlessly. Michael is now the proud owner of a new phone (he’s like a kid with new puppy) and Best Buy exchanged the DVD player. Apparently they only have a 30 day grace period, including total failure, but they were more than happy to do it.

I have been working on a new round of pillows that will be finished tonight and hopefully be for sale tomorrow!

Have a great weekend.

Something funky in town

Hmm… despite yesterday’s YAY post, there is something funky in town. In the past week we’ve seen the power source in Michael’s computer die, his phone died (he’s eligible for his upgrade so that’s awesome), the DVD player died (bought in August), and one of the pegs broke off the thread rack while Michael was painting it yesterday. I seem to be encountering some oddness in the studio in the last day. Malkie has been hard at work trying to distract us with his utter cuteness, so I had to take a bunch of photos. He’s commandeered my ironing ham.

CUTE CAT SPAM MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER.

And one of Junior, in one of his less grumpy moments.

I’m feeling much better now.
