This week on http://mccallsnurseries.com/wp-json/oembed/1.0/embed?url=http://mccallsnurseries.com/ The Artistic Biker Live! I took a cue from Leslie Herger (@lessherger) when she stated on Twitter that she wished Mother Nature would quit making the sweet love to her face. Â I empathize with this sentiment as EVERYONE here seems to be suffering with seasonal allergies as well. Â This comment had me laughing all week though so for the page this week, I did a tribute to Hay Fever. Â I demoed a few tips on atmospheric perspective and splashed out some quick and easy flowers. Â Then we talked about The Big Sucking T-shirt Machine! Â I’ve had some new ideas to make that sucker work, but it’s still not ready. Â Until then, @EvelineTimeless will just have to sit around shirtless.
Donâ€™t miss The Artistic Biker Live! every Thursday night from 6-8p CDT.
Moon-light Studios is gearing up for a 10-week certified drawing class. Â Upon completion of this class, you will receive a certificate of completion to add to your arsenal or just paste into your journal. Â The class is designed to help any skill level artist improve. Â The best part is the class is only $25! I lied,Â THE BEST PART is that of that $25, Jay will donate $5 to Oasis Studios and Gallery (my studio where we broadcast The Artistic Biker Live!). Â He also has said that anything you pay above that, he will donate too!Â Click Here for Moonlight Studios Drawing Classes!
Dale Anne Potter is still raising money for her trip to Madrid, Spain. For those who donâ€™t know, she has been invited to participate in an artistâ€™s retreat there. Â All she needed was a way to get there and a place to stay while there. Oh, and food and spending monies. Â Well, her air fair and hotel are paid for. Â Now sheâ€™s trying to get food and cab money. Â If you can donate, Barb and Mitzi will make you stuff as a thank you. Â If you canâ€™t, spread the word so that others might be able to. Â Click Here to Donate to DaleAnne!
While weâ€™re talking about donations, in the upper right hand corner of this sight you will see a donate button. Â Please feel free to click that and make a contribution!Â Click Here to Donate to Oasis!
