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!

Only Lovers Left Alive

David and I went to a LACMA screening of Only Lovers Left Alive on Monday night. I LOVED the film. My interest was piqued with the stunning visuals (I'm waiting for someone to have some screenshots of the books that Eve packs) as well as the intimacy between the two main characters in the film. There have been very few new films that I've absolutely loved lately (American Hustle and Frances Ha are the two exceptions.) A good film to me is one that you can't stop thinking about. Only Lovers Left Alive was just purely delicious and quite fun!  

After the film, Tilda Swinton was there in conversation with Henry Rollins. Anton Yelchin was also in the audience and Tilda persuaded him to join them on stage (we were in the second row so at that point, my photos with Anton have two rather large heads in them.)  I enjoyed hearing how Rollins dissected the film and posed some extremely thoughtful questions at Swinton (David said that Rollins made the film sound more interesting to him than it actually was.)

I will be first in line to buy the DVD when it comes out. I'm (impatiently) waiting for the soundtrack to be released as well.
