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!

Between Kubrick, Caravaggio, the German Expressionists and the Surrealists, my head is going to explode (in a good way.) Do. Not. Miss. The. Kubrick. Exhibit. It exceeded the Tim Burton exhibit by far. You really get a feel for Kubrick and how he processed and developed his work.We're already talking about going back.

We were in the Kubrick exhibit for almost three and a half hours. The Surrealist exhibit is another one you could get lost in for hours. The Drawing Surrealism book is now on my wish list. We picked up the Kubrick catalog tonight. Another book for the bursting book shelves.

If you're a Kubrick or film nut, also check out The Academy's exhibit on Kubrick. It's free and is open every day except Monday.

I'll leave you with some of my favorite photos from the exhibit. I'm off to process everything and put my feet up!

 David has two posts of interest on Kubrick: 
Visual Motifs 
2001: A Space Odyssey and A.I.

I wish I could go to the exhibit, thanks so much for the details. Kubrick's quote reminded me of my email signature: 'first comes the feeling, the idea follows'. The heart must have the first saying...
