What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Update on Sanford Sharpie Water-based Poster Paint pens! In the last 24 hours, several people have forwarded me emails about a "new" Sharpie water-based Paint Pen. I've known about them for a few months, but have yet been able to actually get my hands on one, nor have I been able to get a response from Sanford (they keep telling me it is a "new" pen). All I know is that there is a "new" water-based paint pen available. My guess is that it's the same exact pen as the water-based poster paint pens, but that they have removed the word POSTER from the name. I think most people look at the packaging and think, "poster paint? That's for kids!" They don't think like we do and say, "Hey! New art supply!" So, as soon as I am able to find out more information, I will update my pen post. :) I just wanted to let you guys know that there are "new" paint pens out there! You can see the tip sizes and colors here.

I snuck a peek at Yoko Ono's The Other Rooms at Skylight Books last night. Honestly, I didn't think I would like it, but I flipped through it several times and it's a fascinating read. I'm going to add it to my wish list.

I'm spending the weekend working on my new online class. I'm very excited about it and can't wait to debut it! Stay tuned for more info.

Great page. Love everything on it.

I wonder if they kept on making the pens because they got so many emails from artists that wanted to keep using them?

Can't wait to hear about the class.

Hope you have a great weekend.

ugh, I hate when websites don't have pricing information.

Since you sent me the paint sticks, I've been using them so often I think the white one might be on its way out. So I keep my eye out for them whenever I find an art store, though I think they keep these locked up behind the counter where people can't see them. And I'm pretty sure they're like, five bucks each.

Actually I did a search on the store I go to, and they only seem to carry oil based. Didn't know there was such a thing. Wonder what they're like? (probably sticky).

Hopefully dick blick might offer a decent selection some day!
