People in the Neighborhood #1

This series of postcards were inspired by a Lesson in Carla Sonheim’s 2021 Year Long Class. There are 4 total which I will be posting over the next couple of days.

Kurt, Carrie and Sally decided that they wanted to go on an Adventure. Carrie’s dog, Melville and Kurt’s kitty, Boomer, joined them.

My contest submission

Another amateur animated ‘toon. This one was my submission for the Kitchen Table Mini Film Festival. I can’t wait to do another! This was an awesome idea by Carla Sonheim and Kara Kramer. I could still do a ton of things to this video to tweak it but I had a deadline. I still may work on this though.

A little video….

I took Carla Sonheim’s class on animation called “Make it Move” and it was fun and really helpful. I enjoyed it a lot and it gave me ideas how to handle animating my art in the future. My head is popping with ideas.

One assignment was to animate some collage pieces…..this is a very short video where I used a homemade background and three collage pieces to make a small scene. The kitty and the “rod” where pulled out of my paper stash. I don’t know where kitty found the bikini top.😎

Remember, this isn’t Disney, just a little fun playing with paper…..

My West Side Story project

I signed up for a bundled group of workshops back in November, before John was laid off, that were running this year. They are for building my on line portfolio.

April’s assignment was West Side Story. I actually found this assignment to be a lot of fun, however, a lot of work. It was done using multiple media and many, many phases and changes to reach the final result here.

I still could do a lot to it but it was due by 3PM today so it is what it is….

Enjoy.

It’s August

My show was up for a month and a half but regretfully, it’s over. It was a lot of fun.

It was on exhibit at the Patchogue Theatre for the Arts. We get a lot of great shows at the Patchogue Theatre. For those of you that didn’t see it, it was whimsical and charming.

Now that it is no longer hanging, I will share some photos of the exhibit. This is the lobby when you first walked into the theatre.

The two end cats are portraits of my mom’s cats. They are 24x 30 and the two middle pieces are 30×40.

On the back wall of the theatre, there 9 other pieces. These were along the corridor to the interior seating of the theatre.

Sadly, I forgot to take a photo of the one in at Roast. I’ll have to see if hubby took a photo of that one.
