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 almost twenty years now. 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!

A Page in Progress

Here's how the page started with collage first and then various layers of paint were eventually added:

 

I'm taking a quick break to write this post and here's what the page looked like when I left it:


I'll be spending my Monday afternoon finishing up the rest of this book. After this page, there's only one page left in my Compendium of Visual Delights Journal. I'll show you the finished page soon.


I'm quite eager to teach this class! I haven't taught a painting class in a very long time. This is going to be unlike any previous painting class I've EVER taught (and I've taught a LOT of painting classes!) We'll be combining collage (paper, tape, etc...) with  acrylics, gouache and watercolor along with other mediums (pens, markers, stickers, tape, stencils, transparencies, rub-ons, watercolor crayons and more!) 

This is also the only mixed media painting and collage class that I have plans to teach at the moment. I have some other ideas on my plate that I want to focus on (that do not involve paint in any manner!)



I do not have plans to teach the class anywhere else at this time.

I hope to see YOU there!

Oh how I'd love to be present in this class. I've loved this journal since you starting sharing it. I'm sad to see it end. The colors are just yummy and I really love all the layers in it. I bet everyone in this class will have lots of fun.

Thanks, Sandy, for the kind words! I still have at least 12 pages (I think it is) left to post that you haven't seen yet. :) I'll be sharing all of them here!
