An Update and a Project

I, many other regular First Friday attendees, and many school children wish the snow would have come Monday morning or Sunday night. I was not able to attend this First Friday because of the weather. However, being snowed in has giving me some time to work and I will be posting some new pictures in a few days.


I also may have found a studio space downtown! Be on the lookout for Open studio invitations in the mail when I find out for sure.


As many artists know many supplies labeled "art" products seem to be more expensive. An art box used for painting and drawing students looks and functions very much like a toolbox or tackle box, but costs more even though many of the "Art" boxes are made from plastic and not metal. There are many more examples.

Like the other "art" products simple carts can be in the hundreds of dollars:

So build your own with household tools for half the price and in only about two hours! Below are instructions to build your own cart out of 2x4's, two precut boards, wheels, and tools found in your garage (or a friends’ garage).
