I think every artist, at some point in time, has painted a piece of furniture. Whether it be a small piece of unfinished wood, or a project found in the dumpster – There’s something always interesting that you can do to a piece of furniture to make it special and unique. If you haven’t, you may not realize how intricate it is to paint. Over the next 2 weeks, we’ll be showcasing different pieces of furniture and showcasing them on Artisphere Online.

I think the number 1 most important thing that I took from the class and still take throughout my work is the fact that Gary never really gave a firm answer to a lot of the questions being asked during class. This might sound silly but what I mean is someone would say for example “what if I mix this with that or how about if I did this step first then add this” and I cant tell you how many times he would respond” I don’t know , you will have to try it , it might not work and it might be beautiful”.
Creating a child’s room is much different than any other room, and in a lot of ways, easier. Satisfying the desires of a child for their own room is always easier than that of an adult. When dealing with a younger child, there’s nothing more gratifying than seeing their face – seeing their new room. The sky is the limit with these rooms – as far and wide as their imaginations can see!

Outdoor projects are not for the faint of heart. Once we move our creativity outside, we deal with a whole new set of obstacles, from wind to sun (or lack of), rain, and other wonderful elements that mother nature gives us. That’s why when seeing even the simplest of outdoor projects, I like to look a little closer to see how they were created. The three we see in today’s article show the true diversity of what can come from an artist’s hand. Starting with exterior stone, to a large scale outdoor mural, and finally moving to an outdoor floor. We see these three projects excel in decorative elements.

There are three things that I really enjoy about meeting new artists. First thing is, I am always anxious to see other work up close. It is great that we are able to use the web to see artists work from all over the world but nothing beats seeing the brushstrokes and color and the size of an original. After that I love to meet the person behind the skill. I like to see their demeanor, whether they are friendly, their business acumen and so forth. Finally I LOVE to see the studio.
