A BlueJude Update

Well, the business card business seems to be rolling along quite well. Though I have yet to decide on a name, or take out any ads, I managed to score four jobs in the past week! AND everyone is absolutely pleased as punch with the designs I show them! Too cool! It is so gratifying to see their face light up. AND I am having SO much fun doing this that I only hope it continues to prosper. So keep good thoughts and vibes y'all that bluejude keeps rolling along.
OK now I just need to decide on a name and I need to make MY OWN business cards up for this new endeavor! Thank You Jesus...Thank You Lord! Happy Day All!

Summer Breaks

The above painting seems to hold our motto for the rest of the summer break since the little guy has broken his arm! As you can see it has not stopped him one bit from being his little goofy self!
"Handle Me With Care" by D. Altaville c.2007 will be available at Art n Joy on etsy here:
Happy Monday All!

New Endeavor?

I did a post on this already but it doesn't seem to be showing up. Anyhoo, I recently did a graphic job for a friend who needed new business cards. Well, he so incredibly impressed with the four ideas I worked up for him that he's using two. One for BC's and one for ads, flyers, and magnetic car signs. This led to another job with the possibility of another. Anyhoo, a friend suggested I put a small ad in the little paper and try and drum up some biz doing this. AND as you all know I can use the spare change. Whaddaya think? Will it fly?
On a down note, the little guy broke his arm Monday falling off the monkey bars, so it's been a little hectic here. Trying to keep this kid still, keep his sling on, and keep it elevated is like trying to convert the Pope to become a Jew! lol
So needless to say...I'm after him every twenty minutes in between trying to do my puter stuff. OH and ART....Hmmmm...what's that? lol Just kidding, I do have a few things in progress but now of course it will take me a little longer to finish them up. Oh well. You'll just have to stay tuned.
And wait to see a pic of my little guy in his cast. And he barely shed a tear about the whole thing. REALLY! It was like all in a day's work - or should I say play for him. Too much this kid!
Happy Day All! Whaddaya think about this new endeavor?

Fool's Gold

HALLO ALL! I received my copy of "Fool's Gold; Making Something From Nothing and Freeing Your Creative Process" by Susan G Woodridge.YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK! I mean like now! I am only about 50 pages into it but I know so many of you will LOVE this book. It's the type of book that you don't want to put down, yet you want to savor every word, and don't want it to end. AND then you'll wanna read it again. She also wrote a book called Poem Crazy years ago which is also good. But Fool's Gold is a MUST HAVE! Ok so off you go now to your nearest bookstore or book site and get yourself a copy!
It even inspired me enough to get out of my slump and start painting again last night!

In Limbo

"Who Are You, Really?" D. Altaville c.2007
This is an old piece but kind of sums up how I'm feeling lately. At least artistically speaking.
I feel kind of lost at the moment, ready for change but not really sure at all of any particualr direction. Just lost and in limbo.
I know, I know....I should just pull out my paints and supplies and throw something down and see what transpires. I just can't seem to do it just yet. And I don't know why.
Anyhoo, I just got the book Kaleidescope and it's rather interesting. Perhaps it will spark something inside and give me inspiration to go forward.
Hope everyone has a fun and creative July!
P.S. I'll be back with something...a new creation. There I said it! Now I'm committed! lol
