Some clips I found on the net...

Isn't it funny how you start looking for something on the net, you get distracted you end up finding other things? I was at michellerumney.com watching this interview about Agnes Martin



and went to Vimeo to see what other videos might be interesting and I see an artist I know has commented on the same clip. So I went to his page and got to see him talking about modern art...



I found this clip by Artist Danijela Vitasovich which she made during her graduation year at Whitecliffe College...



The Agony of the Agnostic is a song by Chris Knox. To create this animation, Danijela painted 144 individual portraits of a series of poses Chris took to express the mood of each one of the characters singing in the video. While posing, Chris had to follow a complex system of mouth charts designed by Danijela, to allow his characters to articulate the lyrics in synch with the soundtrack. The song is introduced by an animated feature starring Danijela herself. Visit her website vitasovich.com

And I decided that Banksy is MAD, in a good way lol...


I can feel how hard their hearts are pumping in this one...

I love the internet, we are so lucky to have all this information at our finger tips!

Before I forget - Last week I watched Age of Consent and loved it! I think I enjoyed it so much because I have always wanted to hide away on the beach like Bradley does...



This afternoon I watched Modigliani and cried and cried, AWESOME movie!
  
 

The Card for the day is...

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
