Good evening Lured Ones!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
As you can see, I am implementing a new feature to this blog called Sunday Surprise! This means that every Sunday I will post on something of my choice. Sometimes it will be about a finished piece or project that I am currently working on and sometimes it will be something not related to my works at all. Since it is supposed to be a surprise, I won’t elaborate too much on what Sunday Surprises will feature; you will just have to wait and see!
This Sunday, there are two surprises to kick off the start of this series. The first Sunday Surprise is a sundae! This piece on the left is called “Her Sundae Best” by artist Jacqui Faye. Although she paints contemporary portraits she is best known for her figurative works called the Red Shoe Dailies. In these “red shoe stories,” anonymous subjects are portrayed from the shoulders, waist, or knees down and always with red shoes to “paint a story often interpreted by viewers who relate to the artwork through anonymity.” To learn more about Jacqui Faye, please visit her site at http://jacquifaye.blogspot.com/
But wait! There’s more! Moar!!!!! The second surprise this Sunday is that there are more surprises. In addition to Sunday Surprise, there will also be other days scheduled for posts so that the blog gets a consistent flow of content. Are you ready? Drum roll please…. There will be Tutorial Tuesdays, and also Factual Fridays.
For Tutorial Tuesdays I will take pictures or record a video of myself performing a technique or tutorial from a book, magazine or website for you all to see! So that way we are both learning something new together every week. I’m actually really excited about this because not only is it a forcing mechanism for consistent flow of content, but also it’s challenging me to learn something new each week. Yay!
Since we have a day dedicated to techniques I thought a day set aside for learning about art would be appropriate. For Factual Fridays (hehe F to the third), it will be less about techniques and more about art facts. Although the day is called Factual Fridays, I will not post solely short random art facts but rather information regarding art in various categories such facts, art history, current events, notable artists, museums and other research.
I am super excited about Tutorial Tuesdays, Factual Fridays and Sunday Surprises! I hope you are too. I can’t wait for Tuesday’s post. What tutorial shall I do, I wonder? You’ll have to check back and see! Until next time,
