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!

Paint Comparison: Holbein Luminous Opera vs Winsor & Newton Galeria Opera Rose

I had to trek to Blick yesterday in West L.A. to restock my supply bag of paints for my classes (yes, even after the post from Instagram, I still needed to stock up as I like to be prepared.) I am almost out of Holbein's Luminous Opera and was very disappointed to find out that the store was also out of stock of that one color (the whole reason why I trekked there in the first place as my local Blick doesn't carry Holbein.) In desperation, I picked up Winsor & Newton's Galeria Acrylic Opera Rose. You can see test swatches of each above (Holbein is the pink that pops off the page. The Winsor Newton is near the top right corner of the book and you can barely see it.) Guess what's going back to the store today? Hopefully, I'll be able to find another tube (or two) of my favorite Holbein Acrylic while on the road...
