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!

Shared Visions

One of the many things that I love about teaching is giving a group of artists the same supplies and materials and yet each one creates something totally different with it.

Above is a photo I took last week in Hull, MA. I thought it would be fun if I offered my blog readers a chance to save the image and use it in a piece of their own artwork. The catch? None really though I think it would be fun if you take a picture of your finished piece, post it on your blog or flickr, etc..., link back to this post and leave a comment below so we can check out your interpretation!

Who wants to play? If there's enough interest, I'll do this often!

I'd be interested in doing this but can't participate this time as I'm off on vacation on Friday.

I'll give it a stab - might take a while though as the weather is still very, very nice.

I saved it under the date. not sure when it will be used though it poses interest. Currently my mind is preoccupied with chocolate cupcake,beading a ring and finding a new printer due to the sudden and unexpected death of HP.

An fyi, I will leave this open so people can participate at any time. I can link back to it. :)

I am most curious as to how many folks are interested. That will decide if I keep doing this or not.
