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!

MOMA, how do I love thee?

 Above is my journal page talking about our trip to NYC along with our MOMA tickets taped in. 

David and I loved our trip to MOMA. While I was disappointed in the Quay Brothers exhibit (don't get me wrong, it really was worth seeing but it wasn't the same experience as the Kubrick exhibit where you really got a sense of the man and the artist and I LOVE The Quay Brothers.) 

If I could, I would hop on a plane right now and camp out in front of the Duchamp piece Box in a Valise. Below you will find a small selection of my favorite pieces. Nothing will ever compare with seeing a Picasso, Kandinsky, Klee, Chagall, Duchamp, Cornell, Van Gogh, Kahlo, Rivera, Modigliani or Munsch in person. I never truly appreciated Picasso until I saw his pieces in person. I could have spent all day just sitting in the room with the Chagall and Kandinsky pieces and have been superbly happy. I could spend a life time looking at the Klee pieces and see something new each time. It was a surreal experience and one that I have revisited in my dreams many times since. I can't wait to go back.

I am always in awe Kelly when I see this type of artwork in person. It reminds me how much is "lost in translation" on the Internet.

Thanks for sharing this - I just recently got to see an entire Van Gogh exhibit - nothing compares to real life...haven't seen Starry Night in person...yet

The Moma is great!! I loved growing up in NYC, because there were museums galore, but the MoMa always has a special place in my heart.

It looks like you had an amazing time.
