Orion Necklaces

Swarovski Crystal Orion's Belt Necklace
Orion’s Belt Necklace

Have you seen my Orion and Orion’s Belt constellation necklaces yet? I make all kinds of crystal constellation jewelry but there are quite a few new Orion pieces in my Etsy shop, luckystardreams.etsy.com .

Maybe you know that I make jewelry when I’m not painting or dancing. It’s exciting to hear positive feedback I’ve been getting lately. Since my shop, Lucky Star Dreams is experiencing record growth, I’ll stop keeping this “other” job a secret.

Tonight’s life drawing group meeting at the Ocean City Arts Center is on.

Via Meed:

Dear Artists,

Happy 2018 to all!

Are you ready for a great painting night?  We will reinstate the plan we had to cancel for December.  Short-Haired Anne will be our model.  She will be nude, but using props, and a theme of black, white and red.  I am already intrigued.  Anne is so good at making a painterly spectacle that we can be sure of a productive evening.  So bring your paints and a good canvas to kick off the 2018 season!

Added bonus:  See the lovely, and often narrative, work of Grace Zambelli who is showing at OCAC in January.  (You can also meet her at the reception the following evening.)

Who’s in?  RSVP deadline is Tuesday, January 9, 5pm.

All details are the same:  OC Arts Center, 5pm – 8:45pm, $15 per session (exact change please), All mediums welcome except photography, Oil painters must clean up and dispose of terpinoid at home.  We have chairs, and some easles.  Artists bring everything else, including drawing board.

Newcomer?  Direct questions to me via email, or *phone number* (comment if you want her number).

Can’t wait to get back to work!

Musing:  What a gorgeous, severe-clear, pristine snowfall!  Years ago, I would treasure days just such as this.  It meant perfect viewing conditions at the old Barnes Foundation–in the upstairs room where the drawings and watercolors were, shimmering in their understated gold frames.  I really miss that.

I’m not exactly certain of the date this figure drawing group got started but I’ve been drawing with them for about 18 years. I remember first jumping in on a figure drawing night when it was held at the Ocean City Arts League down on 9th and Asbury. Continue reading “Life Drawing in South Jersey”
