This gallery has a number of interesting artists’ renditions of the face and body of Christ.

Knowing your work as “finished” and “successful”

Posted by Dindrane on February 16, 2007 in art |

Genesis tells us that the Judeo-Christian god, after having made the world, looked at it and knew that it was Good. How do we do that as artists, when we look at what we’ve created? When we finish that short story, collage, gourmet meal, or ballet, how do we know that it’s really done and […]

Learning how to combine and use colors can be a trial. Whether you work with fabric, paint, paper, yarn, or anything else, this website and series of lessons can help us by taking us through the process of making a “color journal.” What’s better is that it’s not expensive, is personalizable so the art to […]

GOOD music for a change…

For an excellent eclectic musical podcast, check out RANDOMwerks. You might hear Prince, David Bowie, and the Smiths, and then Billie Holliday or someone you’ve never heard of, but will enjoy. The best part is that you can subscribe via iTunes and just stream it from your computer as you work–no need to change CDs […]

welcome back

Posted by Dindrane on February 7, 2007 in art |

Wow, it’s been an amazingly awfully long time since I last updated this site. It’s a bother having the LiveJournal to keep track of friends, plus life making me write all the time. I’m going to renew my commitment to this site, basically with an eye to using it for a craft/art blog–like there aren’t […]
