Happy Birthday Harvey!


This post accomplishes three things, I think. First of all, it's more of my art, as promised.

Second, it's my virgin attempt at trackbacking.

Third, it introduces me to Harvey and Harvey to you. Go wish him a happy belated birthday. He said he wanted boobs, but I don't think he was referring to my blogroll, so here's some artistic ones:

Oh, and for those who wanted to see more of my art, click here and take a look around.


n.b.: I am NOT a photographer by any stretch of the imagination. Most of my pics are for the Muse. For excellent photography, go Slack over at Motel Zero.

Lovely; all your work is lovely! Love the photography as well... you have such talent!

Joan of Argghh! said...

Thanks, Pamibe! I don't consider myself a photographer, however. That takes a special talent I just don't really possess. Robin is my photo hero.

Now if the trackback thingy works, I can put "blogger" in my resume, too.

Holy ****! I don't know much about art but I know what I like. That is some seriously cool artwork there, Joan.

Joan of Argghh! said...

Fantastic!! Thx for sharing - I am definitely impressed...

Erica said...

Joanie, did I give you permission to publicize that sculpture you made of my groodies? I think naught, and demand my rightful royalties.

Joan of Argghh! said...

Thanks, Laura. And congrats to Trooper!

Erica, welcome back. You want royalties? I only got $380 for that sculpture. I'll buy you a beer in Helen. Heh.

Missed you!
:)

While we all know photos can never capture the experience of immediacy, I must say when I clicked on the original button and was taken to an enlarged view of "Sisters", where the eye can see the details of the weaving of the light, airy textures and folds of the fabric in relationship to the other shapes in the faces - that enriched the emotional impact of the total composition. I have a sister who's dear to me - y tu? You're a talented woman. ~ Cotton skirt, oh you have pegged me.

Joan of Argghh! said...

Thanks mizz e!

I can take only some credit for "Sisters" as it was an exercise for class. It's a Hallmark Card that I rendered in tulle and denim. I used layers of the tulle to create depth.

I love working with clay, but I stay away from pottery because I want to have money when we retire!
:o)

Buy real estate - wisely.

Awwwwwww, Joanie, bubele...somehow I missed your nice comment. Truthfully, I missed ALL OF YOUSE like CRAZY MAD!

Robin Starfish said...

Wow, what ART! I shouldn't have slacked off so much this weekend but what a treat today!

Joan of Argghh! said...

Well, get busy, girl!

Erica said...

Actually, now that I've re-examined the bust, I've learned that my groodies aren't nearly as small as those are. My bad.

Love the sculpture! How did you get started doing this? Must need some serious facilities to do this? I am really curious!
