It’s almost time for the Valentines Day Party at the Coop

Holly, Beth and Resa have arrived at the Coop early to prepare for the Valentines Party!

“Holly has kindly brought her famous corn bread, along with new and exciting surprises. The Chicklets can’t wait to start nibbling. The kitchen crew is so delighted to have her for an entire week. They can’t wait to see what she will make for them.

Midge has been assigned as Holly’s aide. She’s her go-for, and will get Holly anything she needs or wants. Everyone put their name in a hat and the winner was chosen that way, since everyone wanted to work with her.”

“Beth has arrived at The Coop, and while she’s not reading until the party, the Chicklets are starting to follow her around. I have a feeling they will get her to read a story or two, before the big day.

“Resa arrived at The Coop early, so she could set things up. The Chicklets are delighted to have her with them for so long. The Sewing Club is especially thrilled,, since she shows them how to make things, whenever she visits.”

Black & White Blues

It was at least a half block away.  I was shaking. Black & white street art is a bit rare.

I was impressed with how great it looked painted on a peeling tin sheet wall.

When I got there, I realized it was not art for art’s sake, but an ad. That made me blue.

OMG! There’s Leonard Cohen’s head just up over the trash can.

I get there, and it’s not art for art’s sake, but an ad about Leonard Cohen’s memorial stamp. I didn’t feel so blue, because I adore him.

I drew this b&w pencil sketch of a famous person, in a couple of hours. It’s a sort of  copy of a b&w photo. I think it looks like the person.

I got all cocky. I thought I would try another famous person, from a b&w photo. I used a technique where I didn’t draw an outline first. Rather I shaded(scribbled) my way in. I spent many nights shading away. In the end, it looks nothing like the person. I was heartbroken, after all that work.

I did a Blue Heron post a couple posts ago. A couple of comments later, Trent writes this song. He has a fancy synthesizer, and does some cool music on it. However, he actually sings the blues in this. He’s good, got feel.

He followed up with “For Her Heartbreak”. I know Trent got a new synth, sort of recently. He’s been working with it on his new pieces. I asked him what the name is. I got this answer:

“I use a Sequential Prophet Rev 2 polyphonic analog synth as my primary poly-synth and I have been using a Behringer Poly D for bass lines, leads, solos, etc. – the Ploy D is a MiniMoog clone.”

This could be of interest for the musicians out there!

The Heartbreak might be in Red, but it’s blue. You can visit Trent on his blog – Trent’s World

Last, but not least, I share this b&w drawing of a blog pal, that I have never met. Her Poetry & Writings can make me feel anywhere from Powder Blue to French Navy and every blue in between. There’s other colours, but this is about B,W & Blue.

One-Eye Art Gowns Guitars

H’eye all! Tonight I’m your host for a most thrilling announcement event! Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even is using 2 of Resa’s One-Eye drawings to adorn his custom made guitars.

Resa did this One-Eye drawing with Tim and his guitars in mind. It is the first time anyone has seen it, except Tim, myself & Boogapony.

Here is a slideshow of 10 other One-Eyes Resa has done.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yes, there is 1 ~ One-Eye missing from the slideshow, and here it is!

Tim personally picked this blue One-Eye from Resa’s collection.

There will be much deliberation amongst the Art Gowns Models, as to how we would like to present these & possibly more guitars on Art Gowns. While we are waiting to hear from all of the Art Gowns Models, my totally hip cousin, Boogapony, would like to say a few words.

Peace & love everyone! I’m fresh off a Jimi Hendrix tribute post over on Art Gowns & as you know, if it rocks, I’m in! I asked Tim about who some of his fave guitar players are. Here is my pick, of Tim’s faves; Barry Gibbons from ZZ Top.

Back to you, AGM Holly!

Thank you, Boogapony! Not only is Barry Gibbons an ace guitar player, but the song gave me time to change Art Gowns, hair & make-up. I like the feel of the gauntlets for all this rockin’ out! Eric Clapton is another fave guitarist of Tim’s, so here’s my choice for Tim!

It will be a few months until the guitars are 100%.

Nonetheless, if you are interested in buying one of these guitars for $800.00, you can reserve one now!  Contact Tim Price at elcheo@swcp.com.

Sath – Renaissance via Art

First things, first! Congratulations to Sath & Johanna!

They have created the most beautiful 👼 Lila 👼!

I’ve always believed Sath would be an amazing father. Much of his art is for kids & he teaches them through interactive art experience.

Two recent pieces Sath has done are collaborations with SIK. Above is Crow-n. I absolutely adore it. Below is a 21 second video of a mural with a big message about “the orangutans, the palm oil industry and the deforestation”

Check out the details of the mural from Sath & Sik!

“about one of the main causes of climate change. The logging and burning of forests by the timber industry, as well as by obtaining soil for agriculture and livestock are razing the lung of the planet and the species that live there.”

Above is ZoOrquesta Decoración” The slide show above is is filled with animal instruments Sath did for a Music School. La Escuela de Música local del @ajsonservera.

Dalmatian 103

Work done live during the last Nit de l’Art de Son Servera. As always, a real pleasure to paint in a place as magical as the Església Nova and see so many known people.”

What a fab frog! An animal may not be able to change its spots, but Sath can.

“I present to you Toni Serra, the student of Aproscom chosen through a draw to be the image of the 4th edition of the @proyecto.somriu.” SOM – RIU is a participatory mural project to aid people with intellectual disabilities.  Learn more! Visit a previous GLaM post: SOM – RIU.

My sincerest Thank You’s to Sath, for allowing me the privilege of of continuing to cover his career, in the world of art and humanities. Also, gratitudes to Johanna! Her ongoing work for our planet began with Greepeace, & now with an NGO called Compassion in World Farming. They are truly a Renaissance Couple! – Resa

Below is an interview with Sath. He’s that uber happy, proud daddy you see above.
