A Portrait of my Daughter.

Posted by on Jan 21, 2015 in Adults, Artists, Blog, Painting | 16 comments

* Here is a portrait that I painted inspired by my daughter Natalie. She’s turning 12 this year. What an important age! It was around that age that I experienced the things that impacted me the most in my childhood. Some were very negative and some very positive. This is the age where you start building your character and opinions about everything. I’m loving seeing Natalie grow up and get closer to being a teenager. One of the first things that I did when Natalie was born was to read ‘Staying Connected to your Teenager‘ by Michael Riera. It’s never too early (or too late) to learn the ABC of how...

I Made a Box for my New House.

* After reading the number 1 book on organization (highly recommended!), I decided that every single thing in our new house will have a designated place. Not just any place, but one that makes life easier on the daily basis. To accomplish this, I’m building some special boxes to contain things. This box in particular is for my skin products and it will be located in my bathroom, on a nice piece of furniture with a marble top. I can’t wait for you (and me!) to see this box in its final destination. We’re getting ready for our move on March 1st. Time is flying fast and the construction is going...

* Born in Pittsburgh and educated at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Claude Conover (1907–1994), worked as a commercial designer for over 30 years before turning full-time to ceramics, the techniques of which he taught himself. Over his lifetime, his work was shown in almost 50 exhibitions in museums across the country and his pieces are found in numerous public, private and corporate collections. Today these ceramics command high prices in the market place. Here is a great about the artist if you want to learn more about him. I am in love with his work. I can spend a log time looking at the surface of these pieces. They...
