Art Journaling with The Journal Girl Herself

August 2nd, 2010

These past few weeks I have been having some SERIOUS AT & T issues. Our cell phones haven’t been working properly, our internet service has been shoddy, and there have even been slight issues with our land line.  They just recently upgraded their mobile network in our area, but they claim that wouldn’t have affected all of those other systems.  Maybe I just have gremlins.  All I know is that for six weeks I have been building up to The Big Sekrit Project show where I can finally announce what I have been working on with Leslie Herger, Rhomany, Eveline, Connie, and Samantha Kira.  The night I was finally going to make the announcement, my service shuts off entirely.  I am not amused. The last thing AT & T told me was that I had to buy a new modem. I did, so let’s see if that solves the problem.

Because of the technical difficulties, not only was the Big Sekrit Project not revealed, but my discussion with Jeanette Jobson didn’t get to happen either.  I am rescheduling with her and it looks like we might be able to go live on Wednesday evening to make up for the missed show.

The other week, I had the amazing Journal Girl herself, Samantha Kira on The Artistic Biker Live! She told us about her upcoming books and her ongoing workshops and just simply lit up the screen with her presence! Samantha’s advice and workshops center around layers and being true to yourself.  In her honor, I did a page in layers similar to how she starts hers, but then the spray paints and beer bottle caps come out to make this page my own.

You may see me traveling up and down the highways of Oklahoma looking for the next place to sketch, paint, sing, dance, write, photograph or simply meditate. I have begun a journey that once set upon, there is no turning back. You can share in my blunt force journey through the art world on my weekly U-stream broadcast

    Way cool. But did I miss the beer bottle caps? In any case, I’m inspired and I’ll be back!
