I miss Spring, and it is October.  I miss the flowers.  Well, I miss the dogwoods in particular.  Did you know that in addition to being lovely to look at, that there are species of dogwood trees that bear fruit?  There are even varieties whose wood is lovely for smoking meats and vegetables.  And then there’s the art.  Yep, where I live, dogwoods are accompanied by art–like the art in this next Call.  Take a look…

from above or below?

So we are still trying to figure out the logistics of building our own farm.  We’re excited.  We are hoping to move early 2017.  We are working on alternative methods for everything: building, fencing, furniture, electric & sewer.  Then there’s the issue of water.  I can’t WATER goats and chickens and lamb or US without the water portion of the equation.  And while a stream is lovely, there are laws about permanently diverting water that merely goes through your property.  So my options are well water or cistern water.  Both have to be pumped and filtered for different reasons. Decisions, decisions, decisions.  This next Call recognizes water as the essence of life.  I’m thirsty…

Water

 

ELIGIBILITY: All artists age 18+

MEDIA: Open to any painting, drawing, mixed media, photography or digital medium.

THEME:  Work should connect the viewer with the essences of life: water. The work can reflect on the simplicity of a single drop to the power of a raging ocean. It is the most powerful force on earth.  It can humble us in the wake of a storm, provide us with endless energy.  It is necessary for our survival.  It can be the most destructive force on earth, and its beauty cannot be denied.  All life on earth is connected by the need for water.  Artists throughout history have captured it in all of its forms: drops, rain, storms, streams, lakes, rivers and oceans.

“I have always believed in establishing the sky tone, in general, as soon as possible. In sea painting the rest depends upon it because of the element of reflection.” — Frederick Waugh

I’ve been toying with the idea of making cheese.  I have had a 30+ year love affair with cheese–cow to sheep to goat.  Does anyone think I can convince Jon that we can raise and milk cows, sheep & goats, plus make cheese in addition to the blogging, art, singing & house renovation?  It isn’t what we normally do, but we can learn, right?  I am going to start with a cow’s milk mozzarella. Wish me luck.  This next Call may, or may not, involve media with which YOU are familiar, but I think you should take a look either way…

I’ve become a casual fan of Naked & Afraid (the TV show).  When flipping through the channels, I keep tripping across the reruns.  For those of you non-watchers.  Two people (1 man, 1 woman) that have never met who are dropped in a remote location for 21 days with nothing–not even clothes. I am dumbfounded by what they will eat.  If you’re hungry enough, I supposes giant crickets (maybe it was a grasshopper) look delicious.  Bizarre.  Here’s a Call for all things bizarre.  Maybe even crickets…

POTATOES

While traveling recently, I was forced to choose between two “American” restaurants as my only options.  According to these menus, American fare is defined as steak, baked potatoes, boiled vegetables, hamburgers & fries.  I am puzzled by that summation.  How does a country so rich with ethnic variety get distilled down to steak and potatoes?  This next Call wants your ideas on your origin from you perspective; food could be an interesting viewpoint.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from Crossing Art (Flushing, NY) for The View Over Here, an international exhibit of international views of individual origin.  $30 entry for up to 10 images, and it is open to ALL MEDIA.  This is a great theme…
