So there's your link to the artists slideshow. Comments welcome. This was my (and Dennis Fulfer's) first u-tube upload. We weren't sure how to get the sound up with it, so the clip is minus music (Kathleen on the piano). Please feel inspired to make your own dvds and upload them to youtube or google video. I don't intend to get into large scale clip resizing or prepping for uploading (Dennis had to run this through some program to do that) and uploading. I'd really rather you upload clips and send me the urls. To this end, I'll be on the lookout for tutorials and free programs to prep your clips for upload (both u-tube & google video have size & length limits).
If you have not yet picked up a tee to embellish, Celeste (out of town this week) left tees with Addie that you can pick up at the Thursday oil painting group ("Art Etcetera," 10 am onwards at Methodist Church meeting & rec hall). An excellent excuse (not that you need one) to check out this splendid activity (already high on my list for a 2007 Mountainair Monty award) and maybe even join them. It's not at all hierarchical but loosely - gently, skillfully, tactfully - guided and mentored by Shirley Simmons & Addie Draper, who, along with other artists provide occasional workshops. Even traditional representationalists are exploring abstract techniques - and with stunning results. The artists of Art Etcetera will be exhibiting at the annual arts tour. Look for their pavilion in the driveway of Celeste Simon's studio, MIxed Media Arts, next to the bank
