Friday morning musings…

Filed under: General — jackie @ 9:00 am

Good morning readers.

After a week or so of bright sunny warm in the 70’s weather it is now cold and in the 40’s with rain on the way for the weekend here in Virginia beach. I actually had to turn the heat back on.

Tomm. will def. be a good day here for surfing the Net as it’s supposed to rain all day long. Easter Sunday looks a little more promising weather wise. Good news for folks who go to the sunrise services on the beach. We’ve got lots of family in town so it will be a busy weekend here.

This past week has been a little crazy. We’ve been doing some house painting and rearranging. I’ve been busy with plans for the upcoming summer album making workshop as well as the loooonnnngggg list of client and personal work I need to finish up.

Just wanted to mention, for you readers in the Hampton Roads area, Artist James O’Connor and I will be giving a 4 week Limited Edition class at the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia. Basically, we walk you through start to finish in creating an illustrated limited edition set of 5 books of a short story or poems you may have written. No prior art or binding skills are needed to take this course.

On Sat. May 12, 2007 photographer Jill Beninato and I are conducting a workshop at The Red Thread Studio in Suffolk, Virginia. The workshop will focus on learning how to alter photos using various techniques such as sanding photos to distress them; application of color- watercolor, acrylic & markers; masking techniques, bleaching, rubber stamping and adding epherma. The altered photos will then be used to create a custom book cover and books will be made using the coptic/exposed sewn method.

I’ve got a few Events coming up as well. Jerry’s Artarama in Virginia Beach, Va. is having a “Meet The Artists” event from 6-9pm on Sat. March 28

On March 15, 2007 the Contemporary Art Center is having a “Family Fun Fest” from 2-4pm. There will be activities for children such as scroll making and calligraphy as well as a chance to view the View Magna Carta & Four Foundations of Freedom and mingle with medieval re-enactors!

That’s it for today. I’ll be back in the morning with the weekly surf report.
