On the cusp of the new year, I am looking forward to all it holds and I am also remembering the past.
Way back when I first moved out to Los Angeles I was a set decorator on kids' TV shows. This is the crew on a location scout for either V.R. Troopers or Beetleborgs. Yup that is me second from the left. Little dresses and combat boots, my wardrobe hasn't changed a bit! But aren't our shadows cool?
I have reconnected with a bunch of the people in this photo on Facebook and it's been fun to catch up.
This is a photo I took a few days ago outside of the Burbank library. There is a little silhouette of a bunny spray painted on the trash can. I don't know the significance of it, but I like it. I incorporated my shadow in my photo. I liked to correlation between the blackness of the bunny stencil and my shadow.
If you are a fan of journaling and art and are looking for some fabulous inspiration, grab yourself a copy of:
In This Garden acts as a showcase for a collaborative art project
sponsored by artists Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn.
The project explores the theme of gardens as a metaphor
for peace, beauty, tranquility, reflection, and creativity,
while at the same time offering readers an inspiring collage
workbook that explores the techniques, methods, and the
insights of the participating artists.
In This Garden includes memorable garden-related quotes that artists can use in
their own work, a blank garden gate template, and a
gallery of garden-themed imagery that readers can alter and
use in their own artwork.
Angela Cartwright's art and photography is
exhibited and collected internationally. Her
unique techniques are explored in her book Mixed
Emulsions. Known for her acting roles in Make Room
for Daddy, The Sound of Music, and Lost In Space, she
curates A Studio Gallery in Los Angeles, California
where she makes her home and garden.
Sarah Fishburn (Ft. Collins, CO) describes her work as
mixed-media narrative. Her art has been featured in
numerous magazines and a shelf full of books.
