Do you remember when you first learned about colors? I can’t be for sure, but I must have learned “my colors” from my father as he painted tiny little faces on his fishing lures. We would sit at our dining table for hours as he secured each small metal lure in a mini-clipped vice and then delicately created “alluring tiny faces” to attract the biggest of fish in the lake. I remember his determination at painting perfect little yellow circles within larger black or red circles for the eyes. Now,… Continue

Yep, that's me! Judge, jury, and executioner Stevie B! Or something like that...
Actually I've been asked to be a judge in another state for some sort of art grant. That's as detailed as I can get.
It's all mysterious and hush-hush I know but if a prospective applicant got wind of…

When I heared the doorbell ring I did not expect it to be this book! I expected it to arrive sometime in September, at least that's when I heared it was to be mailed. Silly rumors.
I've only quickly checked out the book, somehow finding the page my piece is on, but so far so good. Like Disney World a Lark 500 book needs at least a few days to see everything.
Now if only I would finally receive some sort… Continue

MAD had an open studio today, June 25: Peters Valley presents Harold O'Connor.
To be honest I haven't gone to many of MAD's offerings to it's members or the public. Most just didn't grab me, and to get me to go to anything you have to really grab me. I mean physically. With hands and arms and all the rest that go along with kidnapping someone for their own good.
This time it was quite different. I actually wanted to go.
I admire Harold O'Connor's work very much.… Continue

The photographic images of your work can be like superheroes at promoting your work. They can zoom across the Internet at the speed of light, shrink to the size of a first class postal envelope, expand to super viewing size, keep working 24 hours a day, and show up in galleries, shows, homes, and offices around the world.
Are your images working for you?

Kudos to my friend Ronna Sarvas Weltman, whose book: "Ancient Modern - Polymer Clay + Wire Jewelry" has barely hit the shelves - and is already in it's second printing!! I've previewed it, and will tell you that is is more than eye-candy -- it's a treasure of great information and inspiration. Way to go, Ronna!!

Revolution was my first SNAG conference and what a great experience! A little overwhelming, so much information to take in. For anyone debating on whether or not they should attend a SNAG conference I would have to say that it is totally worth it. Attending the presentations is a must and the professional development seminar was full of great information. I wasn't sure what to expect but have come away inspired and motivated not only to create but to become more active in my… Continue

As I mentioned in my blogger blog http://insidetheartisan.blogspot.com
last month, I recently entered a couple of competitions and have just heard that my "remember the little things" bracelet has just got into the final of the Bead and Button competition. The first stage is showing photos of the piece, and the second phase is that I just sent the piece off to them!
I'm excited just to have got this far. Feels great! Maybe I should… Continue
