Fireworks Art!

The 4th of July, a time to reflect on our country’s independence…and there is no better way to do that then to grill 8 different kinds of meat and to blow stuff up.:)
But since mom won’t let us play with matches here’s a fun SAFE way to make some creative fireworks. What you will need: paper, paint (as many colors as you like), water, and a drinking straw.
Mix your paint with water making it liquidly, dip the straw into the mixture and let the paint drop onto the paper. Next using the clean end of the straw (and I can’t stress that enough, unless you want to look like you made out with a clown) gently blow the drop of paint until it spreads out creating a colorful array of your very own firework art. Just the kind of thing our forefathers would want…and no threat of blowing off any digits. ;)

Happy 4th of July Everyone!

Dragon Con Art Show

For those of you who know what Dragon Con is you know it is fast approaching, and for those of you who don't know what it is, D-Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US.
Dragon Con's art show is one of my favorite exhibits that D-Con has to offer, artists from all over come to display their work. It is amazing to see all the different styles of professionals and armatures lining the walls and this year I want to be part of it.
First step to reaching my goal to be in the art show is applying for it and paying the application fee..Done and Done!
Second step is deciding what art to send into the D-Con jury. Yes the jury will decide my artistic fate. And boy was that a chore. The tedious task begins with picking which pictures I want to submit. That's not too hard you may think, but for a person like me who is incapable of making a decision when it comes to my art, it is a long drawn out task that usually ends in tears and half my hair missing. But after sopping up my face and covering my hair in a hat I made my choice. Time to send it to the jury…Dun Dun DUN!
Third step…we wait. I hate waiting, someone as impatient as myself doesn't wait…we simmer…like a pot on a stove getting warmer and warmer until the lid flies off (yes that has happened to me before, apparently you aren't supposed to leave a pot on high for 12 hours…who would've thought). "Oh please, oh please, OH PLEASE pick my art for the show" runs over and over in my head as I wait…as patiently as I am capable for the letter saying "you are accepted". If I had gone to college I imagine waiting on that letter would've been much the same.
Unfortunately step three is where I must leave you…I know the suspense is killing you right….me too, but I haven't heard back from the jury to whether or not I've been accepted. I will keep everyone posted though. Check back in a few weeks I should be hearing from them soon.
