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!

Doors Away From Home-Doors Back Home

My sister, niece and I went to the MFA Boston for a couple of hours today. I could have spent days there. I'd love to go back before we head home on Tuesday. 

When I visit a museum, I try to buy postcards of artwork that I've seen during that trip. Here are some of my favorite pieces from today. I was thrilled to see a handful of Van Gogh paintings on display. Vincent's art always sets my heart aflutter so this was a treat.

We specifically went to the exhibit to see the Mega Cities Asia display. It was well worth the trip. My favorite piece from the exhibit was Xu Xiangcheng's Doors Away From Home-Doors Back Home. I could have spent hours just engrossed with the doors, windows, bits of paper, stickers and watching how the lights reflected on the floor and ceilings around the exhibit. It was truly spectacular.

When I am home (and on the desktop) I will post more photos. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me.
