Glass work

I'm wondering if I can take a picture if my glass work and post it to the Art Colony.  If so which group would I post it to?  I've been busy making outside glass art, and i would like to show it.  KipREAD MORE

Mandala's are my favorite drawings.  I start and the picture just ends up where it wants.  I do try to make a theme and a flow, but if the lines say no, then I just have fun.  I love seeing all of…READ MORE

I have come such a long way.

Hi all.  I'm so happy to have found The Art Colony.  I am new-only 3 months- to posting and showing my work.  I have sort of found my style, but the funny thing is, I looked back at the first pieces of abstract art I did, and realized how far I have come.  Everytime I start to get a little bored, something else comes my way, and away I go with another style.  Belonging to this group of artists has allowed me to push myself and test new things and new styles.  When I first started, all I…

Keep creating.

Hi Kip,

I found this bead making project very challenging. Most of the ones I made did not come out the way I envisioned . I did make a few that i liked. Before I  send them to you, I want to try to make some using  cold porcelain.  I don't think paper  bead making is for me. I can roll up lengthy  triangles for only so long. I will let you know when I send you my beads.

Great effort on your part!!! :@)

Thanks again.
