i really don't know to explain this one. but its finally done after sitting on my table for a month.
in honor of horse-mama marti. and i also blame leann for introducing me to charlie and setting me straight...i used to think rainbows came from unicorns barfing when in fact they come from unicorns farting! and not just regular rainbows or even the magical double rain--!!! i just realized those double rainbows come from! food poisoning if you get my drift.
so here we have my asstrological sign armed with a silver spoon instead of a bow and arrow...better to fling poo with. in magical pre-centaur glory! farting a rainbow of glitter and pooping out pink frosted corn eyed donuts to dance joyfully under the sprinkles of gltter.
although i say i'm done...i feel its still missing something. or maybe there are too many donuts. it definitely needs to be fixed. for days i dreaded putting the sprinkles in...and once i did i hated how it looked. i want kawaii donuts dammit! this is where i'm wishing i knew how to draw on the computer vs having to do corrections with acrylics. i could throw in a mirror image rainbow from the mouth with ease and edit out all the donuts and just put in one with a cute arrangement of sprinkles to dance off.
i'm so pleased to meet you namowal and moonmama! i am really excited about this grand idea marti has conceived. so thank you marti for giving birth to something wonderful and inviting me along for the ride! and of course, thank you leann for providing a place for us to nurture it so it will grow into some crazy wonderful place!
i love that everyone is so multi-talented!! and i can't wait to see everyone's creations when we all tackle the same subject. that will be a trip for sure :)
..and i would like you all to know that i do not mean to offend anyone with my potty mouth and weird sense of humor [and by weird i mean strange and also naughty]. well...maybe inappropriate is a better word. this is best illustrated by some of my most recent paintings. it was amusing to me to tear up a hello kitty coloring book to reconstruct new scenes....like pearl harbor kitty [internment camp kitty and kamikaze kitty are in my art folder on fb]
things like this happen because i'm japanese american. i absolutely love my ja heritage and love love love japanese culture. i just have issues with being ja. although i'm the first one to poke fun. this is probably because i was born on pearl harbor day. so...pretty much all of my art will have some japanese or asian influence and hidden gems. like the other two paintings i did within the last 2 weeks. i just made this catbus manekineko...and before that a totoro daruma.
oh yes, i also love food. i still think about following a culinary career and making art that way. i used to be a sushi chef...but for now i just experiment with bacon recipes and do things like make peep sushi.
i also sometimes talk way too much. like now. which is probably because i got all wound up from work tonight in addition to taking some excederin tension pills for a crappy headache...so i'm now a little loopy and wired from the caffeine in there. because i like you all...i will spare you and now direct you to my website if you'd like to see what other kinds of art i make. www.meowkami.com
so anyway...i am really looking forward to see what you all are creating for the club! especially since i love what everyone has already been doing. my first official piece is in the works and has been inspired by marti. so that's coming soon! oh yeah, and this cat doesn't like using the caps button.
Hello all and thanks for getting this thing going. I am available as marinarpost on Skype or malinki8 for iChat. I am on FB as well. I will figure out a way to share some images. I used to have an album on FB till I found out if you post it, they own it.
So here are some of the creative ways I express myself:
I make Limoncello.
I take photographs
I keep bees and enjoy honey.
I creatively construct my living space.
I have painted many cars.
I work at a sketchbook sometimes.
Sometimes I document my life in artistic visual efforts.
I look forward to making much more art in my life especially with this fun group!
Here we are fellow creatives. All set with our own blog courtesy of the wonderful Leann. Some of us do not have access to an online video chat - and others of us do. If you do add your online contact info below if you're interested ever in connecting this way. But don't feel like you'll miss anything if you don't. Because we'll all be interacting through this blog right here with photos and such (videos?). Fun!
