Gluebooks!

I just started playing in my Gluebook again. I find it so soothing to glue a few pieces of paper into a book without thinking any more than color and/or shape.  That's after it catches my eye, of course.  Spending five to ten minutes each morning doing this little exercise does wonders for my creativity! The rest of my day is opened up and lived through artist eyes. Here's the last bunch since May 26, 2015.


 
 This was May 26, 2015.  This one I accidentally glued into the book up side down....wonder if that means I am thinking about meditation all wrong?  I'm going on a 10 day Silent Vipassana Meditation retreat, near Yosemite at the end of July, so I should be totally straightened out.


 May 27, 2015. Renew. Got a lot of attention on Face Book with this one. Everyone is so ready to retreat!! Wanting to get away from stress and enjoy nature for a change.


 May 28. 2015. Horizons. Mimicking nature!


 May 29, 2015. Bloom! Feeling like I'm getting into an artistic rhythm and allowing myself to open.


 May 30, 2015 "If you can see your path laid out in front of you, step by step, you know it's NOT your path. You own path, you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path". Joseph Campbell


May 31, 2015. Sunset. The sheet music is "September" mono-printed, someone told me that the hawk represents the crone. The receipt is from the Social Security office.


The last entry in this particular book before I started in again, was March 10, 2013! So it does a body good to clean out boxes of old journals looking for a thread of continuity. Hope you guys enjoy! I am!

One last thing.  I joined a face book group for gluebooks and I think I made some one mad because I've been UN-friended.  I just want to say, Sorry! I don't think I understood what you wanted from me and if you will friend me again I promise to behave!

Peace,
Ellie

Siapo Desgin Greeting Cards

What I've been up to lately!  Greeting Cards!! I have created some greeting cards that are near and dear to my heart. 

They will be available at my brand new Esty shop called AliiTasiStudio, opening at the end of September 2016.  
My greeting cards are one of a kind. There are no two exactly alike. In this series they are hand made from recycled tea bags and stamped with my hand carved stamps using archival inks.Each tea bag is a piece of signed original art.
I was inspired to create these cards by my Samoan ancestors and from living with Siapo hanging on the wall of my bedroom as a child.They are reminiscent of traditional hand pounded Siapo, also known as Tapa, made from Mulberry Tree bark.There is a long history of Polynesian Tapa in Oceania.Siapo was/is used as an element of value, given at Births, Weddings, Funerals and important ceremonial gatherings involving High Talking Chiefs and Village Chiefs..I would love to include you in the tradition of giving Siapo as a valued gif…

Grace Hudson Museum

The gift shop at Grace Hudson Museum is now carrying my AliiTasiStudio greeting cards!!! Yay for me!!!

Wikipeida has this to say; The Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California is adjacent to the Sun House where artist Grace Hudson and her husband resided until their deaths. The house and museum are owned and operated by the city of Ukiah.
Returning to California, Grace and John Hudson lived the rest of their days leading a modest bohemian lifestyle of collecting, traveling, field work, reading, entertaining, photography and painting based in The Sun House in Ukiah, a Craftsman-style California bungalow they designed and had built of redwood in 1911. The Hopi sun symbol was adopted by the Hudsons as their family symbol; the Sun House displays the emblem prominently over the door. John Hudson died there in 1936.
With no children of her own, Grace Hudson left The Sun House and its land to her nephew, Mark Carpenter. Carpenter preserved the house and its 30,000 collected objects fo…

To Be Organized!

My old and favorite blog, artstudio49.blogspot.com has evolved to contain my ART as a clearinghouse of sorts.  It’s what I think will keep me organized, and possibility even sane.  I have joined forces with several online artist/designer-selling platforms. 

These companies manufacture, ship, and pay the Artists/Designers an agreed upon stipend for the use of their digital files containing the artwork.

I won’t get rich or even famous but these platforms are a way to get my work out into the universe or even just the virtual universe.

First in line is Fine Art America, which I joined last year.  My art is in a state of flux and I’m giving birth to new and different kinds of art everyday.  Fine Art America is a great place to start keeping it all categorized, as you’ll see in my shop.  I have uploaded; Collage, Paintings, Photos and Digitally Altered Collage and Photos.  You can get to my shop Me at Fine Art America
Redbubble is similar to Fine Art America in that you can purchase Wall Art…
