Art Every Day Month, Day 11

November 11th, 2013, Comments (4)


Today is the 11th day of Art Every Day Month. I hope you had a great weekend and that this is a week filled with creativity for you!

I usually post my art at the end of the day, but every morning there will be a check-in post like this one, where you can share your work whenever you're ready to do so.

The box below is a widget that I provide each day as an optional place to share a direct link (blog post or flickr image) to that day's creation. If you don't have something to share today, don't worry about it! Share when you can. In the meantime, be sure to check out what other participants are creating! Check out the links from today's post and the links on the participant page for instant inspiration. You can also see lots of great work in the AEDM flickr group. Feel free to share your work there too!

If you use the widget, please link to a specific blog post, not your main blog page or website (or you can link to a specific image if you're linking to a flickr page.) For example, in a past AEDM, for day one I linked to my first post: http://creativeeveryday.com/creativeeveryday/2010/11/the-owl-and-the-pussycat.html instead of my main blog page: http://www.creativeeveryday.com. This makes it easier for people to find your work. Mr. Linky automatically asks for a comment, leave one if you'd like (I love to hear from you!), but it's not required. It may take a little time for your image and/or link to appear. If you don't see it right away, check back in a few minutes. If you're having trouble with the sharing a thumbnail, try putting the url of your latest post in the url box. Then, when it gives you a few options for sharing an image, choose the "pick an image from your site" option. From there, you should be able to select an image of your latest work or some other image from your site. It may take a minute for your image to appear here on the blog.

If you want to share, but don't have a specific page to link to, feel free to use the comments section of this post to share what you're working on. If you're posting less than once a day, no problem! Simply use the latest one of these posts to share a link to your creation. For some, it's too much to keep up with posting every day, but don't let that get you down. Do it if you can and if you can't, just keep on creating, that's the most important part. If you get off track and miss a few days of creating, don't let that freeze you up either. Just pick up where you left off and keep moving forward. One foot in front of the other. You are making your life a more creative one with each step.

How to participate in Art Every Day Month: Check out the AEDM info page for all the details, instructions on how to get involved, and then visit the participant sign up page before you use the link widget to share your creations. The Information page also has instructions about how to use the widget below, if you're having any trouble with it.

Survival Guide: If you feel like you could use some more support, prompts, and motivation to keep going throughout the month, check out the Art Every Day Month Survival Guide.

Twitter: If you're on Twitter (I'm on there as @leah_art), I'll be using the hashtag #aedm2013 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2013 hashtag if you're playing along on Instagram.

Creative Every Day Challenge participants: If you're not doing Art Every Day Month, you can still use any of the daily Art Every Day Month check-in posts to leave your weekly link. Feel free to keep checking in on Mondays or post whenever you have something new to share!


Celebrating a Small Works Show and Traveling Waves

December 8th, 2012, Comments (2)

Tonight from 6 - 10 pm at The Whole 9 Gallery in Culver City, is an opening for a Small Works show, which will feature several pieces of my art. If you're in the area, check it out! My piece, Storyteller, is in the bottom right corner of the invite above.

Another thing to celebrate, my painting, Whale Dreams on the cover of a cd of meditative music, which you can purchase a hard copy of here or find on iTunes or cdbaby.

2013 Calendar!

November 26th, 2012, Comments (1)

My 2013 Calendar is now available! I'm doing things a little differently this year. Usually, I pull from years past up to the present, but this year, I'm filling the pages with art I did this month during Art Every Day Month!

I'm making a small batch this year, so if you want one, please grab it soon. Calendars will ship out in mid-December to get to you before Christmas (in the States.) And as a special bonus, I'll add a drawing to your (or your recipient's) birthday in the calendar pages.

You can grab a calendar here!

Full Wolf Moon and Other Goodies

January 19th, 2011, Comments (9)

With tonight being the Full Wolf Moon, I sat down after dinner to make a dreamboard, something I used to do with collaged images, but in the last year or so I have enjoyed drawing or painting them. I thought it was a good thing to share during the month of cosmos! In this one, I intuitively drew a tree growing from a wolf, with the various branches holding things I want to manifest, such as a healthy body and baby. Have you made a dreamboard for the full moon before? You can find out more about them from the amazing, Jamie Ridler.

I've got a couple other goodies to share too!

1. The lovely and talented, Liv Lane is celebrating the one year anniversary of her Happy HeART giveaways and to help her celebrate, I'm giving away one of my prints! All you have to do is stop by and leave a comment here.

2. My calendar publisher offered me a great discount after the holidays, so I picked up some more, so I could pass the savings on to you! While they last, you can grab one of my 2011 calendars for half off! And if you'd like a drawing on your birthday in the calendar, simply order a second item (greeting card, print, or original art.)

3. The Soul Art TV series of interviews of Creative Revolutionaries has been so fun to watch! If you haven't checked them out yet,  you can sign up here (they're free) and get a whole bunch of free gifts in the process! I'll let you know when my interview is up.

November 11th, 2010, Comments (4)

My 2011 Calendars are ready for pre-order! I'm making them available to you folks first, so do snatch them up, as I typically sell out. The calendars are approximately 11"x17" when open, with full color images of my art in each month.

*Special Bonus* If you order by Thanksgiving (November 25th), I will add a special drawing on your birthday in the calendar (or the birthday/special day of someone you choose.)

They're available for $29.99 plus shipping right here. I'll be shipping them out in early December.

Lights. Camera. Collage.

April 13th, 2010, Comments (27)

Hey, everyone! I'm having fun with the senses theme and was inspired to make a little video, to play with the senses of sight and sound. In this video, I show a few details of how I begin a mixed-media piece, along with some of the techniques and materials I use. I was rambling on a bit and I don't know how interesting it will be to watch, but I know I get a kick out of seeing other artists at work, so perhaps you'll enjoy a peek into my creating world!

I've continued working on the collage since I finished the video, as you can see in the work-in-progress picture above, and will begin the painting part soon. I'm curious to see how much it will follow the original seed of an idea I had for it or if it will go in a new direction once I start painting!

Other items of note:

* Memory Walk: In November, I mentioned that my grandmother passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's (that's her and I a long time ago...gotta love the footie pajamas.) This fall, I'm going to be walking in her memory to raise funds for Alzheimer's Disease research. It's a terrible disease and I hope to make a difference. If you feel moved to sponsor me on my walk, you can do so here. As a thank you to those who donate, I will be randomly selecting one sponsor to receive a special piece of my artwork!

* Kitty Art: I've got a couple new items in the shop, including some adorable Itty Bitty Kitty art pieces and brand new Itty Bitty Kitty Greeting cards!

* Spring Sale: Through the month of April, you can use the coupon code spring2010 to receive 20% off your order of prints, cards, and original pieces in my shop.

* UPDATE: The collage in the tutorial above, later became Bee Memories.

Other places to find my art

Over at Liv Lane's blog, Choosing Beauty, Liv is having a giveaway for a print of my mixed-media piece, Lantern. You can enter to win by leaving a comment on her blog by Friday 1/29 at midnight!

I also love the question Liv asks with the giveaway, "What lights your way on your darkest days?" I answered the question in the comments and have been enjoying reading the answers from others! Liv is a fellow Creative Every Day Challenge participant, who also co-hosts a fabulous weekly radio show in Minnesota called Get Real, which I got to be a guest on last month!

You can also be entered to win one of my prints every month by subscribing to my Blue Tree Art Gallery newsletter. The sign-up form for that is in the lower left corner of the site, where I offer original art, prints, greeting cards, and calendars featuring my work.

This month and next, you can also see my work on the beautiful online zine, All Things Girl. The theme this month is Through the Looking Glass and my pieces, Leap and Listening are featured.

A big, heartfelt thank you to everyone here for supporting my growth as an artist. It means the world to me!

2010 calendar

Hooray! My 2010 Calendars are ready for pre-order! I announced this earlier on Twitter and in my newsletter, but realized when Havi mentioned my calendar in her Item post today, that I hadn't posted about them here yet!

I do these in limited quantities and they did sell out last year, so scoop one up soon. The calendar features 12 pieces of my artwork, one painting for each month. The calendar is about 11"x17" when open. See below for the back of the calendar which shows thumbnails of the 12 featured art pieces.


You can purchase the calendar here for $29.99 plus shipping.

Special bonus! If you pre-order the calendar by November 30th, let me know your birthday and I'll add a personal drawing on your special day in the calendar! (Or if you'd prefer, I could do a drawing on another special day, like an anniversary.) You can email me your birthday after purchasing or write it in the message to seller box in paypal. Pre-ordered calendars will be sent out in early December.

And now back to your regularly scheduled art-every-day-monthing goodness!
