Learnng curve...again!

More learning curves. Learn Corel Video Studio to go along with my new PSP program.

Monday was a great day......doing something I've never done before, Collaboration with other artists on a project.

We have a big encaustic show coming up and opening the first of September for TexasWax-Dallas. The showed is titled, "Global Swarming" (of course take off on global warming and bees swarming, etc.) and it will be the first show for the renovated Discovery Gardens building gallery at the TX State Fairgrounds. These old Art Deco buildings are wonderful and it's great that they are being renovated.

I haven't started my individual pieces for that show yet........BUT, we are also having small groups of us collaborating on a couple of larger pieces. Three of us live about 130 miles away in north eastern TX, so we decided to get together at one studio and work on them. Carolyn Fox-Hearne and Larry Kitchen (both instructors at Kilgore College) and I got these pieces going in Carolyn's studio. We even made a small video with Carolyn's new little Flip Video of the last hour. Only problem....back to my learning curve. I don't know yet how to get a still or two out of the video file. I'm gonna learn though. AND, we don't want to share our pieces yet either. I'll post them just as the show opens or around that time anyway.

So sorry, no pics/videos...I did want to put in one still but I haven't figured it all out yet........along with loading and unloading old and new fridge and g-kids today.



  1. OK WEll then beeee that way but I want to see when they come out! exciting to hear about the art deco buildings being restored, too - I didnt know that.

  2. Ha choice, the two paintings are in Carolyn's studio and we didn't take a picture that day of the finished pieces.
    Will post by the time the show comes around...promise!
