Building Something from Nothing

Just take a look — DeZeen (design) magazine, South Africa.

This is creativity … something from not much … and so ‘green.’

An artist ‘painting’ murals by using scraps of plastic bags – incredible.

Also a home built (basic, but practical) by using sandbags.

Play this:  video clip … for some inspiration. Enjoy!


Beverly Hills Affaire in the Garden – May 2008

Several of you have asked, as you know I try to attend (or volunteer for) as many art shows as I can during the Spring … and I thought you’d like to add this one to your calendar now, so it won’t pass by you again. It also happens in October, just in case you miss this one.

This FREE show, The Beverly Hills Affaire in the Garden, is held along 4 blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard, in Beverly Hills, California, and is one of our very favorites.

Prices range from not too expensive all the way to ohmygosh. And yes, a variety of food is available for purchase at different booth vendors. Parking is available along the neighboring streets, or you can pay for parking in lots. Or maybe, I should say, you can pay lots for parking, heh heh.

The show features art by more than 200 exhibitors from around the nation, who showcase their work in photography, painting, sculpture, watercolor, mixed media, ceramics, jewelry, drawings, graphics and prints.

May 17-18, 2008 – (Sat./Sun.) from 10am to 6pm.



Chema Madoz – Most Creative Photography

Sometimes I just happen upon the greatest sites.

Wish I could recall exactly how I found this one, but it contains some of the most creative photography I’ve seen in a long, long time.

And it seems I’m late to get on the bandwagon. Who knew?

Be sure to look carefully at his use of light/shadow, composition, fun choice of materials combined with his delightful sense of humor.


Chema Madoz was born in Madrid in 1958. From 1980-83 he studied Art History and photography at la Universidad Complutense and El Centro de Enseñanza de la Imagen in Madrid. 1985 marked the year of his first solo exhibition.

And here’s a book (May 2005) about him, in case you’re looking for more. Enjoy!
