I've been a dabbler in art on a few occasions. I've done pottery, carved many wooden bowls and done seven days of painting.

The painting thing came about when my daughter and niece complained about the cost of paint. Both of them were quite prolific but had never sold anything. I told them I would buy paints the next day and that I would sell a painting by the weekend. I sold six. I gave them the remainder of my supplies and challenged them to sell something. Eight years later my niece still hasn't attempted a sale. The cost of supplies controls whether she paints.

Photos

1. I painted this crude beach scene on day three of my painting stint. The wooden canvas was salvaged from the beach.

2. I carved many of these bark bowls in the summer of 2004. Later, I carved many more from wood. All started out as driftwood. My tools were stolen that fall and I haven't returned to it but will one day.

Hi Everybody! I am new to this forum, and newly returning to my permaculture dreams. I'm an art educator right now, but my partner (who is also an artist) and I want to merge our art life with gradually increasing self reliance. Excited to be here! My website/blog is dive3studio.com, and here are a few images:



Looking forward to making new friends here! Have a great day!

Hilary

Amazing Artworks!. i'm crap! basic boring stuff has only ever come from my pea brain regarding painting, I tried it and failed... . BUT I am awesome at designing clothes, and I create restructured clothing from recycled stuff.

Ken,

I admire art a lot but your first two paintings I would happily hang in my home to look at every day! Keep it up, you have a gift!

Fiona,

Clothing is the most useful form of art, don't belittle that!

I like photography but I'm not very good. Thankfully my subject matter does most of the work for me!

i am an artist too. i have so many mediums that i dont have anywhere near enough time for them all.

mostly now i make things with feathers and wings, shells, and do some metal work and jewelery with beads.
but i also love to sculpt, work with pottery and other ceramics, i make paper and bookbinding, work with fabrics and batik. i used to make a lot teapots, pottery, and sculptural planting pots, handmade tree free books, some more conventional paper blank books. those were some of the crafts that i did more frequently, before i move on to a new craft/art.

i have done all these things for money and it has been my actual job and main source of income for most of my adult life. though its pretty tough at times, and lean, i do make a small paycheck to support my humble living.

my first art forms were painting, drumming, singing, and also i was a semi professional dancer, but that was like 4 or five lifetimes ago ! or rather, when i was much younger i loved to do acrobats and dancing and would preform, and got into fire dancing as i got older. sometimes i still do some fire dancing, just for fun =)


most of my favorite art pieces i never photographed, or are blown to the winds somewhere! but i will post some stuff i have photographed.
this is the webspace i have been working on. i really should make some time to work on it more....

https://sites.google.com/site/leilahamaya/

heres an old painting, of the moon:



me wearing one of my newest pieces, a feathered hair clip:



one i made for myself that i wear a lot, macaw feathers:


another clip, peacock and turquoise



i did a lot of peyote stitch and working with really intricate bead work...heres some beadweaving


star sapphire wrapped with beads, the stone is quite beautiful, which doesnt photograph right


and made a lot of jars covered with beads, some of them bigger, some small and wearable



i make these spiraling dreamcatchers, with copper, lots of feathers and wings and stones.
even though i have a gallery that will buy as many of these faster than i can make them, lately i cant seem to wrap my mind around making them anymore.
these are some of the simpler ones, i made some that had multiple pieces that spin around each other

My textile art can be viewed at www.meliors.net. I repurpose old blankets and natural fibres with embroidery, crochet and other handmade techniques to make installations and individual pieces that respond directly to environmental issues, especially extraction and more recently industrial agriculture. My intention with these works is to make art that is beautiful enough for people to be able to hold their attention to the issues I raise, such as mining disasters, oil spills and climate change. Mostly it seems hard for people to look straight at these issues for long because its so ugly and depressing to contemplate.
However, I got frustrated with this subtle approach and lately I've started making banners for use in protests and rallies.

Welcome to permies Meliors Ruth
Have you met the incredibly cool endemic basket fungus?

I thought of that (among other things) when I saw your beautiful installation.

The only artistic capability I have is in ceramics. This is my favorite pot I've made.

I taught my friend Brian to quilt a few years ago in exchange for him giving me rides to places I need to go (don't drive due to vision disability). Now we quilt all the time! I've found this helps me train my remaining vision to focus and distinguish between various colors and patterns.

Here is a chicken quilt we made from the huge bin of scraps that we've generated over the past 3 years. (the combs are the four little points at the top of each block) I wanted to do a permaculture pattern AND use up waste pieces at the same time.

I spread the lap quilt out on my bed so I could take a picture. By the time I came back with my camera, my cats had found the quilt and settled in for a nap.

Cassie - if you can make that beautiful vase, you can make a quilt. Like all things, it just takes a little practice. If you have a tv, there are several quilting shows on PBS as well as many excellent Youtube resources. Most areas also have quilting guilds and people are often very helpful to newcomers. Fabric and craft stores also hold classes. Or if someone you know sews, piecing the quilt should be a piece of cake.

Here's a picture of the front of my mother's lap quilt (her Christmas present this year). The picture was taken by the longarm artist (a big machine that actually quilts the top/batting/bottom together) so it's at a bit of an odd angle. I'll post better pictures when I get them. The quilt still has to be bound, thus the raw edges.

This pattern is called "Lady of the Lake".

Jennifer, I started a thread so I don't fill this one up! Thank you so much for the encouragement! Encourage me, I make you more art! Is there a personal message on this website so I don't need to shout out to everyone? I would love to chat about your experience and see what has changed!

Evelyn - next to the date in a person's post there should be a "PM" button - this stands for Personal Message (or as Paul likes to call them, a "Purple Moosage"). Just click on the PM button next to the date on one of my posts and you can send me a message.

My friend Brian and I got carried away piecing chicken quilt blocks from scraps and ended up with an explosion of hens. We looked at each other like "what are we going to do with these chickens now that we have them?" Well a friend had given us some batting scraps from larger quilts so we made a stack of potholders. Here are two of them.

I always have some project going, here is my ongoing portfolio on Pintrest. Stuff I Built

Most of my stuff is contract work for display. This is a cardboard stool I built with a "French Enamel Varnish" (FEV) treatment on the sides.

Here are some more pots I made. I finally got to take pictures of them because I gave them as christmas gifts so I didn't want to post pictures of them until I gave them.


Just a fruit bowl I made on the wheel. The wheel is probably my favorite. Super freaking cathartic for me. I just stop thinking about everything in the world but what my hands are doing.



This one is a slab pot I made that was sort of intended to be a casserole dish but my mom is too scared to bake it because she thinks it will break. haha so she turned it into a little pen holder and she even put her permaculture playing cards in there!



This one is a giant coil pot I made. You can even see the crack, which I wanted in the picture. Because I think imperfections make them better.



Another giant coil pot I made. I don't like the glaze on this one, because it isn't really a glaze. the studio I made this one in had only weird paints to glaze with so it didn't turn out like I wanted it to, but it is still pretty cool.
