When I was in Helena for the Governor's Cup, I had the opportunity to visit an artist in her studio who's work I have admired for quite awhile. Amy Livezey paints in a beautiful home studio with a WOW view. From her website, which the above button will take you to, she says: "My paintings are explorations of history using paint, photographic finds, pieces of paper old and new, and a variety of tools to build up and then mine the images for a fresh look at the past. Layers and abstraction serve as an homage to the complexity of this endeavor - the chaos of the moment and our ever changing cultural perspectives. "
Visit her site, or better yet, see her works in person in Helena, so you too can fully appreciate her talent and thoughtful works of art. She is one of my favorite Montana artists. Thanks, Amy-such a treat to meet you and spend some time with you!
The Governor's Cup Half Marathon was a fun experience!
It was a hilly course, but well paced.
The comradery of other participants,
the satisfaction of meeting a goal,
and the scenery...
Cheers to Helena's event!
Can we be weightless and still have a heartbeat?
I am reminded to always be well within, and our heartbeat will carry us forward.
Wishing a strong heartbeat for all of us.
Seriously, what artist of a 'certain' age wasn't just a little bit influenced by animation art of the 60's and 70's? The Beatles and the Yellow Submarine , Scooby-Doo, Flintstones, the Jetsons...
Check out the link above to Toucan Gallery, who hosted Ron Campbell and his pop up show. It was so interesting to meet this gentleman from Australia, listen as he shared his craft and experience some live influential pop culture art .
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
