My new artsy adventure – Christmas Ornametns

After all, it is that time of year.

I came up with the idea and gave it a go and here’s what I ended up with as the final product.

Shameless plug, I’m selling these if you’re interested.

Handmade, original and unique, featuring a clear plastic construction so they aren’t going to be shattering or breaking easily. I do 3 or less color options for them. Each includes a one of a kind Jackson Pollock style (Action Painting a form of Abstract Impressionism) design that can be anything from the colors of your favorite sports team to a nation’s flag or business logo.

Posing – From a Model’s Perspective

If you read this blog often, you have surely come across several of my posts talking about the importance of posing your model as a photographer or artist. But, perhaps it is also important to factor in the value of posing skills and technique from the model’s perspective.

While any artist or photographer can benefit from a posing guide, models can benefit just as much from such publications. This is especially true when it comes to either a new model or a model working with a new artist.

A great series of guides is the one by author Justin R Matrin on the website www.posemuse.com. You can get his work on Amazon also.

While the works tend to focus on drawing, they can easily be applied to any type of art and I suggest you check them out if you are on either side of the camera or canvas.

Talented Artist/Set Designer M.K. Hughes

When one thinks about the performing arts, most of us probably tend to dwell on a few details. These may include such things as the acting, storyline or music and dance if it is a musical production. But there’s another part of the story that helps to create the magic, the set design.
