Flaming Skulls

Posted in ahh geez, art class, Bring it, create, Death, fabulous, Gnarly, Halloween, hand of man, Haunted, Skeltons, Skulls, the story unfolds with tags on October 19, 2010 by anuvuestudio

Some guys in a tricked-out truck stopped to admire my flaming skulls…No doubt they had use for them beyond Halloween. Personally, I think one would look great hanging off my front door. Hey, there might even be a market out there for those wishing to deter unwanted knockers. Kinda like a really punctuated “do not disturb!!!” sign 😉

Last Class

Jamie held her last class tonight. She needs some R&R and I need help with the only H recognized holiday…the one that matters…Halloween. We had ice cream sundaes and I would just love to show you all the kids making and eating them…but…no cf card. Yes, rookie mistake. Good thing the shots are all in my head. I didn’t get all the kids captured tonight…but hey, I had melting ice cream to eat.

I want to thank Jamie for offering to teach the kids in my home… so closing the gallery wasn’t so hard on them…and me. It was my pleasure to watch. Thanks to RJ, Marina, Emily, Cody, Bella and Ishika for making me laugh with your endless smiles. Thanks for sharing all your creativity kids. Until next time…hey, in 2 weeks I’ll need all of you for Halloween…so don’t get lazy!


Like Father, Like Daughter

Emily finished her painting in the Young Rembrandts class and Jame and I thought it was so special that we wanted to share it with you. I thought it would be nice to have her portrait in front of the magnificent photograph her Daddy gave me. Jonathan shoots several different exposures with custom pinhole cameras that he makes himself. He then makes prints like this graphic that even old Ansel and his zone system would be proud of…

Emily is 10 years old and it took her 4 very patient weeks (one 2 hour class each week) to finish… I believe you can definitely see…creativity runs in the Family!

Dining Room Arts

As most of you know, Anuvue closed it’s doors last month and will remain so until the economy (or we) recover (which ever comes first). In the meantime, the Young Rembrandt Art Class remains intact, a gathering of all the young artists we can fit in my dining room.The kids are a delight to be around, what with those smiling faces, so very inspiring to both of us. I witnessed Jamie coming in tonight from a tough, frustrating day at work, to a totally revived woman by the end of the night. That’s the kinda stuff that makes me very happy, that and being able to watch, as she mentors these kids. I snuck out for treats…and she told me “nothing messy”. Of course Jamie being the professional Mom (and I the child), I came back with ice cream sandwiches and chocolate chunk, chewy cookies. Truthfully she and I dove in first! YUMMMMMH!

Presenting the Young Rembrandts…

What we learned

There is nothing in this world like watching a childhood friend teach a group of young kids to have confidence in their own abilities. It’s like really cool magic…and I only I got to see up the sleeve.
