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!

Look Up

"Beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.”-Oscar Wilde
David and I were up late last night watching the lunar eclipse. It was hard to take your eyes off of it. Amazing how many folks were out walking (or bicycle riding or jogging) in our neighborhood between 11:50 p.m. and 2:38 a.m. and (sadly) how few of them looked to the stars.

my crappy cellphone picture where you can see the red moon, Mars and Spica

I enjoyed your journal layout and saying. You did a great job with just a simple word. And I forgot to look last night so thank you for posting the partial eclipse. -con

DD and I were up watching it with you from MN. Spectacular to see and watch. Love looking at the night sky; no matter what the occasion or lack there of, star gazing is just one of those simple pleasures, it's free and so easy to do. And during the day, clouds and sunsets set my eyes to the horizon and sky. It's magical and really never the same twice. Everyone should look up once in awhile. It's good for the heart and soul.

Thank you, Con, for the kind words. :)

Thank you, Susie! I love that you wrote that you were watching it with me. I was thinking that last night. How many of us were looking towards the stars at the same moment. How connected we all truly are.

It was SNOWING here in NE Ohio...so sadly no blood red moon for me. I'll hope to catch it next time.
