Photo from Studio Tour

Just a quick update with a photo taken by Bob Miller, who has a wonderful website with his photographs that you can check out here. This photo was taken on Saturday at Robert Ortiz Studios here in Chestertown, MD. Robert kindly let me use a couple of tables in his beautiful woodworking shop. Studio tour has been very pleasant and successful so far. You can attend next weekend - see details here.

Of all the treasuries I could show off here...

This is my recent favorite, by YannPendaries. It is so light and bright and cheerful and artful. Honored that he included my ochre dots painting. Hope you enjoy!

Makers Share Inspiration

Hi all! A few etsy artists on an etsy team called "Etsy Ugly Cute" decided to play around with making art inspired by other etsy sellers. Anyone could pipe in and ask, 'pick me, pick me!' there was no obligation to buy, just a fun way to cross-promote and support each others' art.

Both artists who had their way with my work surprised me by picking items out of my shop without letting me know which ones they would be translating into their media. The anticipation was incredible, I kept checking their shops and the team discussions every day hoping for a glimpse! During that time, I enjoyed their interpretations of other etsy sellers' work.

The first item sold immediately to a very loyal fan of my work! I was flabbergasted by how Kathryn Muse captured the character of 'The Guys'. Pictured are my polymer clay guys, followed by Kathryn's interpretation of them.

This experiment was such a success that the buyer (my sister)placed a custom order with Kathryn for a set based on my other little creatures, 'The Bubblegum Gals'. My niece and nephew now own these plushy squishy fun little folks inspired by my designs. Thank you again Kathryn! I cannot describe my glee upon first seeing your interpretation of my blue fellows.

Please visit Kathryn's "Musers" in her shop to have your mind blown with plushy cuteness. Stay tuned for a blog post on the second co-creative-conspiracy!

Angela Ranzoni on Artworks Studio Tour

This year, my art and I correspond to a little number on a map, which happens to be the number 14. What this means is that you can visit me on the Artworks Studio Tour on October 29th, 30th and/or November 5th and 6th, between the hours of 10am - 5 pm.

Robert Ortiz Studios is lending me space for a display of my work (so you won't get to see my studio per se, as it's a disaster area mixed with my apartment in general) but you will get to see my latest paintings, sculptures, and small scale mixed media drawings. I also hope to bring out some little-seen older drawings, and offer some deep discount prices to move along some older work.

Also at Ortiz studios you can see the polymer clay jewelry of JoLecia Crowe.

Please visit Artworks for access to a full PDF brochure of the 53 tour participants, map artist descriptions and photos.
