i am spending the weekend journaling in redondo beach with

katie kendrick and orly avineri.  we are integrating portraits.

when i showed them this sweet photo at the end of the day,

they both turned to me and kissed me on each of my cheeks :)

i started these yesterday with katie's lessons.  today

i will continue to work on them through orly's guidance.

i saw this on Tracey's blog who saw it  Marji's blogs 
and decided to jump in.  How about you?

* Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014 *

I promise to make a small work of art for the first five people who comment on this post and say "YES, I want in". A 'like' alone is not enough of a commitment, nor is a comment about thinking Pay It Forward is a great idea.

You must in turn post this as your status update and make something for the first five who comment on your status.

The rules are simple:
– It has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends.
– It can be anything art-based: a drawing/illustration or a conceptual work of art, a photograph, a knitted item, cross-stitch, paper maché – or anything in between.

I'm paying this forward thanks to Jack Oudyn.  Yes, you can be on each other's pay it forward lists.

First five, GO!

PS. It doesn't matter if you aren't an artist, try something out, google/ YouTube how to make stuff, step out of those boundaries.

 Step 1Copy&Paste this (see below) as your latest entry on your favourite social website (in my case, its this blog) 

Step 2For the first five people who comment on your blog entry saying they want to participate, you will do an art trade with them that must be completed by December 31st 2014. I would count as the first person so technically you only need another four. If you find your friends are keen you can do as many as you want. 

Step 3All forms of art count including creative writing , photography, digital anything goes!

i have already received this beautiful folded piece from marji.

there is lovely sewing details, wax, painted flowers.  

thank you so much, marji for paying it forward.


  1. Your paintings are lovely, they are emerging from the background. I like them as they are, but they do say that they have not come into the world as much as they wish as yet, so I look forward to seeing them when you post the finished paintings.

  2. Yes, of course I want in! ;o) Anything to get some of your work! ;o)
    I will post this today, for Monday 4/21/2014. Thanks Irene! ♥
    PS: Gorgeous work this weekend!

  3. Lucky you Irene! Spending the weekend with two of my favorite people ♥ The work you are creating is gorgeous and I love the Art Pay it forward idea. I am in! xox

  4. I love what you were doing in your class. Do you realize how far you have come? Count me in on the Pay It Forward.
