Our Artwork

Post  milo on Sun 27 Mar 2011, 10:04 pm

Many of us have hobbies that we can do while in the middle of an episode. For many of us it's art in it's many forms. I know I mentioned my art before, and I pronised to try to get my hands on some photos to show people.

I still don't have any great photos of my real artwork, but I took a cool shot of a doodle I did today and thought I'd post it because it kind of shows the type of artwork I do.

Who else wants to share theirs????

Oh snap....it didn't all come up. Darn. Oh well, I suppose you get the drift anyways.

I'm not very good at painting, as I much prefer photography, but I've sold quite a few pieces so it seems some people like the results of my farting around.

I can't draw a stick man straight!

But I love the color combo in your doodle.

This first one is a wood carving and the rest are clay. I wish I had the time to do this again, but between work, family and migraines, I have to wait for retirement so I can decently persue my art again. I miss this part of me.

Why did my artwork pictures disappear a few days later?

What do you mean Angela?
I still see your sculptures and a little "string" sculptures in one frame - 4 in all.

Btw - they are so beautiful!

Your painting is too, Milo!! don't know why but I see some Native motif there.

I still hope to see your photographs as well, as I love photo-art.

They are great photos.

I love portraits and flowers, so naturally my faves are the flower and the Buddha's face.
The moon is quite haunting, too.

Most of the artwork I sell is with buddha's. I could travel the world taking pics of buddha's.

You mean just the photos?

Or do you further "artify" them?

The pic at the top of the page is mine too....I love that one...I wanted a buddha one but I didn't want to offend anyone's religion, so I kept it to nature.

I've sold all sorts of things with the prints, magnets, keychains, pendants, note cards, postcards, belt buckles...and of course prints. Sometimes I modify them, like the tin man and the flower, and sometimes I keep them as is. Two of my best selling buddha's have never been altered.

It's typical to Inuit art - making human figures out of stones, rocks, right?

I see a woman lying in water - head, boobs, hand legs.
what's interesting, it looks like it's one piece of a huge rock shaped like that.

I wonder if it is a man made sculpture, or came about naturally?

Strange, the pictures were gone a few days, and then they appeared. Must be my computer.

Really beautiful pictures, Milo. Just the kind of shots I put on my desktop. I envy your ability to capture that.

It was taken at a lake in Alberta. I suspect some of the stones may have been placed there but I can't be sure.

I tried, at one point to photograph too, but I don't have any true artistic talent, so..
It's hit and miss end result, really.

Sometimes it works out, though, lol

My peonies after a long rain period


My cactus flower - sadly, the cactus is long dead by now due to a fungal rot disease Sad



My rose with a bee inside


My attempt at "artistic view" of my Maple tree



and lastly,
my pride and glory:



It's the inside of my rose taken with lengthy great pains among bumbling bees, flies,
crawling spiders and rose's unappreciative thorns..

LOVE your pride and joy as well as your maple....right up my alley. I'll keep posting mine because I can tell you will enjoy them the same way I do. I am so in love with macro settings....though my new camera is a fancy dancy one and I've not mastered macro with it. I do better with macro on my point and click cybershot. I'm saving up for a new pentax macro lense....then watch out world!

Please please keep posting your artwork!
I love to see what people imagination can create.

I have some more shots from before, as lately I haven't been doing anything..

A bumblebee caught late evening..


Same bumblebee again, just different angle..


The inside of my Abutilon flower..
great minds think alike, eh? Milo? lol


My attempt at urban photography. but I suck at it..
I should have left people and cars at the bottom..

I admire everyone's talent. I only wish I had creative abilities.

Each is wonderful and thought-provoking in its unique way.

Thanks for sharing and allowing us to enjoy your artwork too.

Thank you, Tecky.

The one thing I find really easy to do for us talentless peeps (and I am one, believe me!) is scrap-booking.
Have you ever tried it?

You can't fail, and you can make it look very artsy and edgy!

I had so much fun doing a perfume themed scrapbook.
I made two, actually, out of the cheapest spring-coil scrap notebook and old fashion mags, like Cosmo, Vogue, Elle,
In Style etc.

I also saved all the sprayed (and not) tester papers from the stores, esp the fancy shaped and/or printed ones,
and used covers of a free samples along with these flat plastic or aluminum packets of real perfume samples.

I thoroughly covered the covers of the cheapo scrapbook with the colorful cut outs (I tried to think of a theme like a decade popular supermodels i.e Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, same color tone, a perfume bottle photo, the word Perfume on the front cover)
and inside I arranged the ripped out perfume ads from the magazines (ripped not cut out - this way it looked more artsy)
with gathered stuff from the stores.

Glued it all on, the add of the perfume with all the corresponding scraps,
and between it all, now and then I wrote my thoughts, my opinions,
for example:
"My first "real" perfume was then expensive Antilope by Coty in 1975, I was 18 at a time and proud as peacock of it Smile
(something to this tune)

I had SO much fun doing this!

Nobody can go wrong with scissors, glitter and paper, I am telling you!
