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!

When the Oscars Invade Hollywood

I'm home from just returning my rental car from the weekend at Budget in Hollywood which is right across the street from the Dolby Theatre (formerly Kodak Theatre a.k.a. where The Oscars are held now.) I thought I'd share a couple of photos that I snapped while walking down Hollywood Boulevard.

The photo with the bleachers is from Thursday morning. The other two photos are from tonight at 5 p.m.

It's a Traffic Hell for folks in the neighborhood and anyone who has to go anywhere near Hollyweird at all the last week. Businesses are forced to close on Sunday (without compensation for the employees.) Forget it if you want to get in or out of Budget. I start waving my rental contract as soon as I make eye contact with security. It's fricking insane!

I didn't watch The Oscars this year but David taped it so I watched the couple of clips that he said were interesting (the Tim Burton commercial, Ted opening the envelope (neat how they did that though I don't think that he was funny at all) and my favorite sequence that I like to call "I didn't know that he/she died!"

Folks keep complaining about how bad MacFarlane was but the Oscars haven't been good in years (decades and decades!) I thought MacFarlane was an odd choice from the get go and never had high hopes but than again I haven't had much hope for the Oscars in a long time.

I avoided going to the Hollywood YMCA last weekend for this reason.
