Miami artists

One of the things I love most about being in South Florida is the art scene.  Not that I'm into an 'art scene' per say, but I love that people care about art and there is always an art show to go to and get inspired!  I love meeting new artists and learning about their creative process and what makes them tick.  And of course, the more artist I meet and know, the more sane I feel.   Over the weekend Tommy and I saw a great show at Iron Side(a gem).   Our friends Russ Ronat and Marcelo Daldoce had some gorgeous art at the show.  I have to show pictures and tell everyone which pieces I want to buy someday. 

 I met Marcelo when we were drawing at a Sketchy Miami Party.  I love the colors he uses in his portraits and how the brilliant pigments just drip off the page. very dream like.  Tommy and I both want to add his self-portrait to our collection someday.

 And there was a fire show!  It got hot in there.  A gorgeous gal performed yoga, danced and meditated. I didn't get her name though.
 This was the first time we saw Russ's art and of course love it.   The layering effects he uses give the paintings a great rich depth and make them interesting to look at.  Tommy likes the dark brown beetle the best and my favorite is the deep, bright blue beetle, although they look so great as a set.
 Russ is planning a trip around the World! He leaves next month.  Hearing him talk about his plans makes me think of what I would pack on a trip like that.  I can't wait to see what art he makes from his trip.
 like the 'room divider'?
 And of course we had to end the night at the Mac'n truck. Our favorite vegan food truck. (the only vegan food truck in Miami as far as I know)
 They love me.  I got my very own Mac'n hat!  I love them too.

We had another fun night in Miami looking at beautiful art and hanging out with awesome people.


New ETSY shop with my art

So it has finally arrived.  I have opened an ETSY store with my art for sale.  I am slowly but surely posting more and more to it every week.  Here it is! www.jenmeyer.etsy.com



The Three Sages

I finished the sage etchings/carvings (the beginnings can be seen in this earlier post).  Tommy and I have so many people that have positively influenced our lives, it was hard to pick just three.  After weeks of debate we decided on our top three: Ken Wilber, Ram Dass and Wayne Dyer. All living sages. All have a slightly different take and perspective on life and have helped us grow so much.  Now we are always reminded of their wisdom when we see them above our couch...I like how they came out.

Do you have anyone who has positively changed your life?  Who is? and have you told them?


Sketchy Miami sketches

So these sketches for Sketchy Miami are a bit out of my norm.  I felt the need to loosen up my rigid lines and try something different.   Let me know what you think.
