I was reading one of my artsy publications or Zines the other day and found an article by someone who had started an art group that met regularly and grew to about 50 people. I really miss our ArtChicks group but since Deb died we just haven't been able to hold it together. We were a foursome to be reckoned with and had such fun. I tried to bring in some others but Four was just our magical number. We all fit in one car and could dash off on "Field Trips" to museums or stores or even down to Sandollr's in South Florida for a long weekend.

We cannot duplicat or redo that group so I'm thinking of a larger, loser group. Mainly for those interested in Altered Books/Arts, Collage, ATC's, Mixed Media, Assemblage, in Paper, Fiber, or Salvage Art. Anything funky. If it works we can break up into smaller groups to meet more often or to do specialized projects not of interest to the group as a whole.

I'm picturing tables laid out with piles of our excess "Stuff" that we've accumulated and maybe separating into "For Sales" and "Freebies"... We could have a project for each meeting or demonstrations or just show & tell.

Initially, we could meet here or move from house to house but once we've grown a bit, perhaps we can find a store or space at the Art Center or somewhere free/cheap to meet.

This would be for anyone in the Orlando/Kissimmee/Central Florida area.

Anyone reading this who is interested, leave comment and e-mail or e-mail me.

Okay, that worked. I guess I have to do them one at a time as separate posts. At least until I get a bit more proficient.

Let's try for another picture of one of the collages. I'm not doing well on uploading today.

Ah, it's been awhile. I've been addicted to Pogo games and now am a Texas Hold-em Poker fanatic.. but meanwhile I have managed to clear out some stuff to some Freecyclers and relisted some duplicate posters. I have photographed a few of my collages and will try to list them on eBay tonight. It's a bit frightening to put your work "Out There" with a good chance that no one will want it or bid on it. I did sell a nice one last year for not much and did sell a really good board book to a professor at a university in Japan so it is fun to send stuff out into the world to see where it winds up. I mostly give stuff away so this should be interesting.

This is the poster that has the highest bids and it's the last one I have. I wish I had ten more.
Poster auctions end tonight and I'm hoping for tons of sniping. Bids on some are very high but some are just languishing at or near the starting bid. Tomorrow will be spent packaging them and carting them to the post office. Not fun but the $$ makes it worth it. Now to find more "stuff" that people really want to buy!
