sneak peek…

Would you see if you think the furniture is arranged right?  Do I need new curtains?  Do you like the colors?  Check on the kitchen table… there should be cookies and milk waiting for you…. that is if Shirley hasn’t gotten into them.  She doesn’t drink that much… LOL


where was I?

I don’t have a clue what I was doing today.   Was suppose to do a post here.  Some how I got caught up in doing some research on uploading videos…  then it was trying some stuff on my blog.. over and over and over…. nothing worked. 

Then I sold a painting on www.pjhornbergerfolkart.com .  Well I had to do the Happy Dance fore at least an hour.  I was thrilled, still am.  Was forced to eat a hamburger and fries R made.  The things I do for that man….

Might be changing up my blog…. decisions, decisions….  then I realized I hadn’t made a post. duh…  So here I am… telling you good night.  LOL 

www.PJHornbergerFolkart.com  a really nice place to hang out….


a little wisdom for Monday morning…

You can teach techniques, but not results.

quote by G. Hale

Isn’t that brilliant?  I love that.  Covers a lot of things.

 

Another altered book page from an Art Journal I did a few years ago.  Now it belongs to a really nice lady in Brenham.  I had fun doing those books. 

Yesterday I did a video of the gallery here in Carmine.  It is the shakiest video EVER. LOL  I’m outta practice.  If you have time,  take a look see.  I’m going to be making lots more videos.  See, told ya…it takes practice. :-))  

Have a great Monday, a great week.  I gotta go paint! hugs, PJ

amazing…

Altered book page in an Art Journal I did a few years back.

Oh, my…. I have worked all day putting art on my new improved website.  I think I have 25 pieces on there, and more to do.  I think I’ll quit for today… my brain is in computer over load.  But I had to do a post and tell somebody… bless your heart… you’re it. LOL   xo

Altered book page…

I haven’t finished the second page.   I wanted to show the actual page under the paint (around the edges).  That will give you an idea of how those colors will show thru if you use craft paint with a little medium on the page.  Text will look cool showing thru also. 

Describing how I do this isn’t my best talent. 😉   I’m better at videos, I think.  Also,  lots of the pens I used on this are metallic,  shiny, or have a tad of glitter.  Of course you can’t see any of that. LOL duh….  For me,  those pens make it more fun. 

Practice lettering on copy paper.  Don’t be afraid of it.  You don’t have to be the best…. and don’t compare yours to mine, or anybody else’s.  If you want to use theirs or mine as a guide,  go for it.  But don’t beat yourself up.  It’s suppose to be your art…. and suppose to be fun.   We’re all way too critical of ourselves.  Give that up… it gets in your way of doing good stuff.

If you go back on my blog,  somewhere I show the button cover on this book.  If you’re interested in doing one,  let me know.  I’ll tell you how I did it,  and got the buttons to stay put. LOL

Heart and doodles

Good morning!  I didn’t get this one finished last night.  The one on the right side.  I had planned to doodle all the way up with swirls… now I’m thinking it needs some words/text/something.  What would you do?

That’s why it’s good to have other pages with background paint on them.  You can skip to another page while giving the other one some thought.  Same way with paintings, sculpture, etc.  If I work on more than one painting,  I can always switch to something else if I get stuck.

Only problem with that… you have to have the discipline to come back and FINISH.  Lots of artists have that problem.  Lots of projects,  very few completed.  Not a good habit to have.  I’m obsessed with finishing it.  Even if I know it’s  ugly. LOL  I’m determined to see if I can fix it.  If I still hate it after I varnish… I’ll give it a few days,  maybe a week.  Then it goes in the trash.  I don’t want to see it again.  Or I paint over it and try something different.  How do you deal with your rejects?  Unfinished art? 

Ok,  to the studio for me.  Yea!

www.pjhornbergerfolkart.com  so much to see….


another altered book page…

Doodles

It seems I have a mental block against B&W….  I’m so ashamed.  LOL   I swore these last two pages were going to be just B&W.   Not so easy for me.  Color seems to creep in everything I do.  Gotta have some color somewhere.  😉  I love B&W.  Love the starkness of it.  Just don’t seem to be able to do it.  🙂  

 Maybe some more therapy would help…. Just kidding.  You have to realize… you have to know that I have a sick sense of humor.  I’ll say anything thinking the whole world knows I’m yanking their leg. (that’s Texan for kidding)  Then I find out somebody really believed me.  That gets me in more trouble.  Forget about apologizing… explaining…  they just get madder.  Now I just say… “I lie”.  Seems to clear up everything.  LOL
