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!

Art Pilgrimage April and May 2018

(photos taken at The Barnes in PA)

I'm home from my road trip across the U.S. and back. I have the feeling of re-entry onto planet Earth. I taught this past weekend in San Diego and this Saturday I'm teaching in Los Angeles for the first time in a long time on a Saturday! A week from today, I'm trekking to Santa Fe and Colorado Springs for workshops, then up to Northern California. Then I'll have a little bit of quiet time to work on my plans for my 2019 workshop in France.

In the meantime, here are some of the unedited photos that I took of my favorite pieces at each of the museums Mom and I saw on our art pilgrimage. It is difficult to truly see everything at even the smallest of museums. My focus was on the work of Vincent Van Gogh but I managed to find some additional gems in each visit.

I'm going to do a separate post on the Van Gogh paintings that I saw since seeing Vincent's work was my main reason for visiting each of these specific museums.

Grab a cup of tea and sit back... I'd love to hear which artworks you are most interested in from these museums.

Mondrian and Cezanne at the Kreeger Museum DC

Paul Klee at the Phillips Museum D.C.
