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!

On Sunday, April 2nd, I visited SF Moma just to see the Matisse Diebenkorn exhibit. I strongly recommend buying your tickets in advance to Matisse Diebenkorn as it has sold out every day since it opened. I got there first thing and it quickly filled up. I am working on a separate post about my experience seeing Matisse Diebenkorn at SFMoma. I hope to have that posted soon.

After about an hour with Henri and Richard (and after seeing each painting several times often having to wait until someone else wasn't ogling it first), I left the exhibit. There were lots of other art that I was eager to see and I had very limited time to do it in.

In two hours, I was able to see A LOT of art. I saw the entire Matisse Diebenkorn in less than an hour and the above pieces in about 45 minutes (there are a few paintings missing that were too blurry. Rothko, I'm looking at you.) I adore museums. They feed me and fill me. However, it can get to the point where it feels overwhelming. I also had a long drive to Portland ahead of me. I left eager, inspired and yearning to pick up my paint brush and scissors.

You can see more at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. 

As I make my summer travel teaching plans, I am planning some trips to see:

What am I missing?
