Â With all the craziness that comes with my beautiful, young bride’s school starting back up (she’s the art teacher) and me leaving for a week of training in Houston, there hasn’t been much activity on the Artistic Biker front, nor on the Oasis Gallery & Studios front. Â We did manage to get a little arting in, but mostly it was about staying sane and not killing anyone. Â While I was in Houston, I stopped in to the Ragin Cajun Oyster Bar and Grill and had TWO DOZEN OYSTERS!!! I love oysters and these were the awesomenest. Â Those with six hushpuppies, dirty rice, two Blue Moon pints, a slice of bourbon pecan pie and a cup of spiced rum coffee and I thought they were going to have to roll me back to the hotel!
While we’re on the subject of sketching and painting in public, this week on The Classroom, I believe I’ll demonstrate and talk about the pros and cons of inktense over watercolor pencils. Â That’ll be Tuesday night 7p central time atÂ http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oasisgalleryokÂ and the password is “arting”.
Girl2 has really taken to drawing these doodle tangles that look like flowers, dragons, cats, owls.. Â Sometimes she colors them and sometimes she just scribbles something. Â I encourage her to use her imagination during this time and she’s doing GREAT. Â I have been getting a touch bored with drawing spoons and coffee mugs, so for the second week in a row I worked on the plastic flower. Â My coffee mug is almost never empty at this cafe because the waitresses are all eager to see what we are doing each week.
Several weeks ago, I made a new art journal on The Artistic Biker Live. Â Believe it or not, I finally got around to producing the You Tube video. Â You can watch that here:Â http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnOPG2k9_2A
Â Everything should get back to normal this week with the classroom, the show, and the progress on the studio. Â There’s a lot still to do and a lot still in store so be sure and tune in each week for the craziness.
