Friday, May 9 I taught an Artist Trading Cards class as part of Trade School LA. It was hosted by reDiscover Center in Los Angeles, CA. My first time there and my first class with Trade School LA. I will be participating in both again in the near future I am sure.

I was familiar with Trade School Brooklyn so when I saw that they were launching in LA I jumped on board. And I am so glad I did. Trade School is all about barter. The teachers list items they would like to receive as payment for their class. The students pick from the list and bring one or a few of the items to the class. It is all really cool. I made my items pretty open. One of my items was succulents. Knowing this is southern California I knew that this would be a pretty easy item. One wonderful woman brought me four small succulents! I also had on my list teacups and another great woman brought me three with matching saucers! The other items were art and or sewing supplies. I ended up with watercolor pencils (which I was thinking about purchasing), a small sewing kit, two books, and some old wallpaper. All great supplies that were items I no longer have to purchase! In turn I also received an enthusiastic creative class. Everyone loved the subject material and really got down to business creating diverse little works of art. At the end of the class we all traded and we walked away with lovely collectible one of a kind art works. Truly a great evening. As I always say at the beginning of my classes, even if you keep your own art it is okay. You are still walking away with something fantastic, new and inspiring.

Here are some photographs from the class courtesy of Richard Hecht and Alyssa Archambault.

Like last Friday, today is PHOTO FRIDAY. Okay, I am one day behind, but that isn’t bad.

Give yourself permission on PHOTO FRIDAY  to write nothing or something. It is up to you! Part of blogging every day is finding ways to make it sustainable. Having one day or more out of every week that requires only photos can provide a much needed break from using words.

Use 5 to 7 photographs (fewer or more if you want) to show and tell about yourself as an “Artist in Your City.” When you travel outside your workspace, how does the artist in your get expressed?

  • Where do you journey in your community as an artist?

  • Where are you exhibiting, performing, or selling your work?

  • How do you appear (attire, attitude, and ambition)?

  • Are you working at another job to support your art making?

  • What places do you frequent most often in your community? Why?

  • Do you support other artists at their events?

  • Who is in your community that you want to connect with?

  • Who cultivates the artist in you?

  • Where do you go to relax and regenerate your creative spirit?

Last night I volunteered as a sewing teacher at the So-In, Sew-In: Celebrating the advent of Culver City’s plastic bag ban sponsored by Transition Culver City. I had a fantastic time and was even interviewed by a local reporter which can be read online here

Not only did it feel great to help out, but I got to meet some of my neighbors! Truly a bonus for any one especially someone new to the city. I look forward to helping out again in the near future.

Here are some photos taken by Richard Heaven from my visit to Van Cortlandt House Museum, temporary home of my Sing for Hope piano. If you get a chance give it a visit it is there till June 15 16, 2013. Everyday you can visit it until 6pm.

UPDATE: Just found out that all of the pianos will be removed from their location some time during throughout the day on the 15 (this may be not until 7 or 8pm, but may be earlier). There will be a closing celebration on Sunday, June 16 on the Josie Robertson Plaza at Lincoln Center. So if you cannot make it to the Bronx you have another chance in Manhattan to see all 88 pianos at once!

Apologies for the long delay in posting. I am working on a deadline (or a drop dead date as some would say) with time restrictions. Normally not a problem, but I’ve got something called a day job that can get a bit in the way. Even so I prevail and will conquer!

Since the last post where I shared my reaction to excitement I have begun working on a piano. I was given an upright piano to work on. Well it wasn’t given to me, it is in a studio location where I get to work (during specific times) on it. I happily would have taken any of the pianos and am still super excited about this project. It is coming out fantastically. Not exactly as I planned, for nothing does, but possibly better. I am using vintage music books (bought online), shredding the pages inside of them (which my mother cringed at the thought), and am applying them to the piano. Oh and I primed and painted the piano first. Why? The primer and paint were free, I hadn’t ordered the music books yet, and as a former piano painter said it is a good way to get to know your piano.

When it is done it will be on display in NYC (will share location information when I find out!) for the first two weeks of June. So if you can play piano come out and if you cannot play piano come out to take a look and listen!

Here are some pictures of my progress so far.

It’s been a little over a year since I first made a felt bird. And it was beyond time for me to make another. Well really a flock. It may be a small flock, but like nature they are a multiplying and I know there will be more to show you in the future. I especially love the yellow one and have a special project in mind for him/her.

Here are a few images. Notice the tiny one. I will definitely making more tiny ones!
