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!

Van Gogh at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, TX

Who knew that there were so many Van Gogh paintings in Texas? About a week ago, Mom and I visited the McNay Museum in San Antonio on our way home from my workshops in Florida. I went just to see the Van Gogh's Women Crossing the Fields. I had a little extra time and this is what I saw while there. (I would definitely go back as I could easily spend the day there. I really like how the museum was organized by theme.)

Mom and I listened to Vincent and Theo: the Van Gogh Brothers while on the road. I'd highly recommend it. 

I'm planning my trip for the end of April and hoping to visit the Barnes Foundation (PA), The MET (NYC) as well as the Toledo Museum of Art (OH) and a few others to see Van Gogh. I'll have a big announcement about this trip similar to one that I made last year very soon...

I have visited the McNay many times since I live in Houston and San Antonio is a 3 hour drive away, plus a fun place to visit. Thank you for reminding me about those treasures!
