A while back after I spent a beautiful afternoon at Stoller Vineyards I took these photos
while my husband and I sped through the countryside of Yamhill Oregon in our little convertible. Life doesn't get much better than this!
The land and the skies are breathtaking .

I've been a little crazy over the last few months creating "hands on shared creative experiences"!
What does that mean?
  I have been effective in setting up some inspiring workshops that  have ignited the creativity of  friends, high school students,Chinese Medicine Students, Moms, daughters and corporate executives.
I have been stimulating creative interactions among many  even including chickens.
Here are a few photos from some fun art encounters over the past few weeks.

She paints a lot of pieces that have a Wayne Thiebauld

I have been working on images for our website lately and it seems
I am going off  on some crazy tangents.

   I am rediscovering how fun and challenging it is to paint with
watercolors again.

Here are some great pictures from our  "tester" Eye Opening Workshop on 
October 27th 

Eye opening workshops blend inspirational and strategic
exercises with a “ hands on” creative art project,
held at dynamic off-site or on-site facilities.
Intensive, fast paced, energizing encounters are led by
two professionals from diverse art and marketing
back-grounds. Custom designed exercises and
“Eye Opener” stations utilize different cognitive
tools and stimuli to help drive fresh ideas and creative
problem solving.

Juliet making sure we kept to a schedule

“The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind…creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers.”
Daniel Pink



Maddie's concept for a cool mirror embellishment

Doug brainstorming his "tea party in a box" idea.

Not everyone is in their “right mind” ;
That is why we created Open Eye Art.
Whether we are right- brained, left-brained, type A, type B,
amateur or expert…everyone has an ability to be creative.
Sometimes we just need a little help bringing the right brain back
into balance with the left so that we can open our eyes to
our own creativity.

Here are a few big eyed  "eye-dias" I have been working on for 
                   a project for OPEN EYE ART.  I had so much fun doing these 
   studies in watercolor.

I would love to experiment with an ETSY store just 
to see if there is a market for
prints .

I must admit this girl was another Mark Ryden inspiration.

I took a great Gold Leafing Class from Nancy Thorn www.goldleafdesign.net and learned a minute smattering of the many  tricks of Water Guilding and Oil Guilding.
Here is the Italian Style frame I guilded and then created the traditional scraffito painting details using traditional egg tempera that I scratched into using a sharpened stick.
The acrylic painting is an experiment I did for our 
OPEN EYE ART

Can you find the eye in this piece?

Another idea that was influenced by some striking green shutters
I saw in Bellagio Italy. Another reminder to keep your eyes open all the time.
