Art-o-mat Live Demo at Travel South USA

On Sunday, March 6, Clarice and I painted live as Artists in Cellophane, also known as Artomat artists.  Artomat was featured by Visit Winston-Salem, the Convention and Visitor's Bureau, at a booth for the Travel South USA show at Benton Convention Center in downtown Winston-Salem.  



Clarice and I work on artwork for a refurbished cigarette machine that now vends art behind us.  Artomat was born in Winston-Salem and is the brainchild of Clark Whittington.  


WXII TV videos Clarice hard at work on her Artomat collection.



Herbs loves Krispy Kreme with headquarters in Winston-Salem, NC.  



We met Frank Neef, master potter from Seagrove, NC, the pottery capital of the  nation.  Frank specializes in a crystalline glaze over cutwork pottery.  We promised to visit his studio during Seagrove's Celebration of Spring with open studios on April 16-17.








After having fun at the Travel South USA show, we headed to Krankie's Coffee for a much needed coffee and Artomat refueling.



Here is the Krankie's Artomat machine.


Today, I vended a lovely and inspiring piece by Jill Caporlingue.

Illustration Friday: Tattoo

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
