hold the ketchup

I’m fascinated by the prospect of using veggie oil as an alternative fuel for powering cars & heating homes.  I’m not ready to jump to the change; however, I do have some fundamental questions.  Are fast food joints going to start get paid for their waste oil? Will traffic jams smell like french fries? What about the pesticides used on the crops from which the oil was processed?  The name of this next Call probably doesn’t indicate the heating source, but we can always hope, right?  Always investigate…

Check out this Ongoing Call from Old Furnace Artist Residency (Virginia) for Summer & Fall Residency opportunities.  No cost application or residency.  You just have to get yourself to Virginia.  Take a look…

I’m craving purple potatoes.  Potatoes have become scarce in my house lately.  Paranoid about my family’s long history of diabetes, we are trying to limit our starch intake to see if my current symptoms can be controlled through diet.  Because we already cut out gluten, I don’t really miss bread.  We’ve never consumed a lot of rice & prefer spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles to pasta.  But oh how I miss the potatoes– the beautiful, majestic purple ones particularly.  I’m sneaking them in as the crust for quiche & pot pies, but the chips & fries & mash are all gone.  I have to reserve all things majestic for this next call.  Love this one…

PICK ME

Not every weed is to be plucked and discarded.  Hopefully no one is spraying chemicals on their garden--either to fertilize OR remove pests; however, I DO want to encourage you to remember that not every weed needs to be removed either.  Chickweed is a perfect example.  If you’re lucky enough to have it sprout in your garden, don’t weed it…eat it.  And you don’t have plant a garden in an open field to find this gem; it even grows in the cracks of sidewalks.  No really.  This next Call DOES, however, make use of an open field.  Investigate…

full of
hard knocks

Unfortunately for my husband, my late Aunt Mildred has been visiting.  Not literally–that would be creepy.  The long standing joke in my family is that my Aunt Mildred never finished anything until the last possible moment.  She hemmed her daughters’ prom dresses while they were in them trying to leave for the prom, and she left all of her kitchen cabinets wide open until she was finished with dinner.  This week alone, I have left kitchen cabinets wide open 4 times.  If I lose count, I only have to count the knots on his head.  So, my family would say, “Hi, Mildred.  Thanks for visiting.”  This next Call is a far better way to be wide open.  Trust me on this one…

SEASON

It is ramp season in the Smoky Mountains.  I am thrilled to have a locally-grown, fresh vegetable of any sort after the winter of snow & ice we just endured–even if it gives us all dragon breath.  If you aren’t familiar, ramps are spring onions with a strong garlic smell and onion flavor.  They are called “spring leeks” elsewhere.  We’re using them in salads, soups, casseroles and atop nearly every dish consumed in my house right now.  You name it, we’re finding a way to eat them.  Another sign of Spring is this next Call.  Maybe this one is for you…

Check out this Call for Entries from Oil Painters of America (OPA) for their Spring Online Showcase. $14 entry & huge awards.  You DO have to be a member ($60), but great benefits exist for oil painters.  Take a look…

Golden Dawn by juror Tim DeiblerBorn and raised in Oklahoma, Deibler’s passion for landscapes, mountains in particular began after seeing the 1956 movie The Mountain as a young boy.

“Every time I look out the window or walk outside I’m in the mountains, making it much easier for me to observe the constant moods and nuances of nature. My goal is to portray what I’m experiencing in nature, I want the viewer of my work to say ‘I’d like to be there’.”--Tim Deibler

s’il vous plait

I have weekly menus for breakfasts, lunches & dinners.  I tried being spontaneous by buying pieces & parts in the right amounts & putting it together on the fly.  But, I only made it one summer.  I have learned if I don’t make a plan & do the prep each morning, we end up eating lazy.  That means pizza or wings or burgers, and that’s not always the best choice–even homemade.  For now, I’ll keep my impromptu moments out of my kitchen and leave them to my art.  How about you?

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Impromptu.  Low entry ($24) & free matting & framing.  Love this theme…

Impromptu

To capture in an instant, an unexpected scene, the unscripted interaction, serendipitous magic in a single shot.

The medium of photography skillfully lends itself to chance.  In certain instances the medium is defined by how rapidly a single shot can be fired and, in turn, art created.

Just as an improv actor steps onto the stage without any thoughts or goals is his/her head we are looking for the images you took off the cuff that the very telling, thoughtful and insightful ones. Photographs that succeed because they aren’t staged.  Work that encapsulates a plot line, a “scene of crime” or unique character-driven exchange.
