Judith van Praag's insight:
Stéphane Zagdanski states this novel will never be published, yet this depends on what you consider publication. Poetics in all shapes and forms, memories, may be fleeting, or of lasting quality, as is beauty up to the eye of the beholder, yet registration is a form of publication, isn't it?

Already 100 pages of Zagdanski's expression of prose and poetics have been exhibited in a brick and mortar gallery, and we can see those pages Online.

What is the meaning of publishing? What does publishing mean? What is the meaning of registration when ink fades? What is the meaning of print when books can be burned? What is the meaning of data if lost? What is the meaning of poetics, if not an understanding between creator and audience or reader? What if? I see, and therefore the image is present I see, and therefore, the image is, I see, and therefore, the image, I see the image Therefore.

KITCHENBAZAR - Tried & Trusted Recipes Mostly Jewish, Ashkenazy and Alsatian by Manuela Wyler

KITCHENBAZAR - Tried & Trusted Recipes Mostly Jewish, Ashkenazy and Alsatian by Manuela Wyler | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
De la cuisine et des recettes plutôt juives et plutôt ashkénazes tendance alsacienne. Ess gezinterhait - Mange en bonne santé
Judith van Praag's insight:
An artist in her own right, Manuela Wyler has created a most diverse presence on the Internet. From Shoah Archives, to Alsatian Ashkenazy family recipes, from remembering the dead to celebrating life every second of the day she's an example of living life to its utmost. 
Le Chaim, to life, to life.
Manuela's middle name could be Joy for Joi de vivre, and although she joked she resembled a carpe (not the only one of my friends, Frieda Menco said the same of her own "visage") I'd say Carpe Diem is her credo. Cooking up deliciousness for her family and friends. 
A sharp writer, she's shared her thoughts on blogs and paper, and published the book "Fuck My Cancer".

Now that she's given to speaking rather than writing, I marvel over her audible voice, reminding me of great French actrices.

Avec salutations sincere, je te embrasse gentillement ma copine de Twitter et Facebook, ma Soeur Ma. With love from Seattle.

HITRECORD is an open-collaborative production company, and this website is where we make things together.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Joseph Gordon Levitt will tell you exactly how you can make your wildest creative dreams come true. Well, perhaps not Oscar or Emmy Award level ... or perhaps even that. Check it out. Collaboration is the word.

Worried about people borrowing your stuff? Remember what Picasso said about that?
Right.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Gary Davis, Woof Mocha, and I met Ben at Paul Joseph Taylor's in Wyoming. We sat around the tall table in the later winter sun light, hung out on the couch, swapping stories, of planes, prairie and waterland, connecting. Such precious moments in time, when there's no agenda, no flash lights, no business, just tea, some good snacks, large plants, paintings by Yidumduma Bill Harney,, the buzz of creative energy and oxygen.

Family Blankets

Family Blankets | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

Inspired by existing textile art Hanneke started making crib quilts for her grandchildren, moved on to create bed covers and wall hangings for her children, to branch out into making table clothes for festive occasions. 

Browsing Hanneke's website, looking at her work process, the people involved, makes me realize how viewing quilts is like looking through a family album. Quilters sew together swatches cut from the whole cloth to recreate stories, piecing together moments in time.

The quilt appears to be an example of the quantum theory; everything exists in an ever present moment. It all depends how and when you look at what.

Collaborators

Path with Art provides marginalized adults the opportunity to engage in the
creative process as a unique means to improve and rebuild their lives.
Judith van Praag's insight:

Check out the collaborators of Path With Art. Finding out more about the organization I started playing with the sequence of the first letters, and added an S for Soar With Art Path.

I remember learning about acronyms and how meaningful they can be. Took me twenty years to find out that PED XING stood for Pedestrian Crossing. Until that moment I had pronounced the words [Ped Xing] the way I saw them on traffic signs, and thought Ped Xing was the American expression for Zebra, the Dutch words for 'voetgangers oversteekplaats'. Duh! Right? 
 

So to me Path With Art stands for the exchange between collaborators and participants, and that makes everyone involved soar with an exclamation mark!

 

Check 'em out those creatives at home on the Internet.


Soar With Art Path! —SWAP!

What Adults Can Learn From Teenage Ecommerce Entrepreneurs

What Adults Can Learn From Teenage Ecommerce Entrepreneurs | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
These bright young entrepreneurs are not only learning the skills it takes to start a business, but also offering up some sage advice along the way that we can all take a moment to learn from.
Judith van Praag's insight:

A Dutch saying "Een kind kan de was doen," pretty much sums it up. If "A child can do the laundry," so can you, dudette/ dude!

Granted, the fishflops child had a savvy dad, but on a whole, you got to see what you believe and believe what you see, i.e. use your artist's eye and then do the follow up.

 

Hector Vilche, one of the founders of Taller Amsterdam (formerly de Montevideo) would say: ideas are lying in the gutter. Can't remember the rest verbatum, so I'll make that up my self.

 

Value your visions, pick 'em up, dust them off, and offer them to the best buyer.

Practice Drawing People to Perfect Craft

Practice Drawing People to Perfect Craft | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

All artists benefit from knowing their craft.
Craft has to be practiced to become perfect.

Perfect, what is perfect?

Perfect representation may not be what you're looking for.

For the true artist it's not important to know the rules or anatomy? Anatomy is what live drawing starts with.

With understanding of a human's body structure.

Structure that underlies the shape of a face, the movement of an arm, a leg, big toes and even the hairline in a frown is essential.

Essential knowledge for any art form.

Form after all follows function.

Function of parts of the skeleton is what makes us move.

Move a viewer by triggering their own personal body memory.

Memory of what it feels like to articulate a limb.

Limb, face, frown.

Frown on craft?

Craft comes with practice.

Practice!

Judith van Praag's insight:

Before landing on the Poets and Artists dot com site I looked at a Blurb book or rather the magazine format published by PA (I think). The magazine was very well designed, and with 60 pages for $18.95 (I think) not a bad buy at all. So here we are, on a site with several different publications, and all about Poets and Artists. 

Got to love that!

Judith van Praag's insight:

Just fell in love with the isle of Hydra, Greece. A place to go to, return or stay and never leave. Quite a few artists and writers have settled in this place without cars or motor bikes.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Today I had a meeting at the Audubon Center in Seward Park, Seattle. While waiting I looked around in the center's store and gallery and was taken by Heidi Randall's bird collages. IN particular two birds chatting with one another (I imagine) dressed in plaids and tweeds made me smile. See if you can spot them.

5 Reasons Why Artists Need Social Media & Eye Opening Stats to Back It Up! - Fine Art Tips With Lori McNee

5 Reasons Why Artists Need Social Media & Eye Opening Stats to Back It Up! - Fine Art Tips With Lori McNee | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Judith van Praag's insight:

Decades ago, long before the Internet was accessible to all of us, I bought a book, a big tome of a book titled: The Business of Art. I lent the book to the wife of my accountant, who taught Business Administration at the University of Utrecht, that plus an anniversary publication about the small department store called Metz. I never saw either book again, the recipient thought they were gifts, not loans.

 

No problem, most all information can be found Online. Here you have it, the reason for expending your business of Art to the Internet, spelled out by Lori Mcnee.


Do I agree?


My thoughts on that could make up another post all together. Let's say Facebook Pages work when you really have something to sell and a budget to advertise or boost your posts. Otherwise they remain in obscurity. Same may be true for other platforms as well. They may be overrated, but once in a while you may make a sale thanks to your followers or their followers. And if you weren't Online, you most likely wouldn't have found those exact same buyers on your path. But perhaps you wouldn't need them, because your gallery owner would be doing all the serious business in the "back room", the way it used to be, and probably still is done. Still, I love the connective tissue the Internet because once you start responding and getting responses. 

 

Give it a try. 

 

I just made a sale on RedBubble, totally unexpected, and thrilling, even if I'll get less than five bucks. Hey, if all my Twitter followers would buy a phone cover with my art work, I'd make a pretty buck.

Seattle Food Delivery from Local Chefs | Lish

Seattle Food Delivery from Local Chefs | Lish | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it

Your Personal Chefs Lish chefs are independent artisans who are masters at their craft, and are passionate about serving you small-batch meals with the best local ingredients, made from scratch.

Judith van Praag's insight:

Lish is looking good, at least Online and worth mentioning here at Creatives at Home on the Internet. Haven't heard any reviews through the grapevine, but the creatives heading the kitchens behind these "meals on wheels" for the fortunate gourmets who can count on home delivery are well regarded in the Seattle restaurant community. 

I'm curious how the chefs deal with food intolerance that goes beyond gluten free (bull unless one suffers from Celiac disease, and that from someone who really drops weight when not eating any kind of bread or pasta). Would they cater to my food sensitivities?

Being allergic to the word "delish" I'm grateful the word tinkers, thinkers or copy writers dropped the "de" after getting rid of "cious".

At any rate ($+$) the menu options look delicious to me.

Daryll Cox - Fusion Frames NW

Daryll Cox - Fusion Frames NW | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Fusion Frames NW, located in Bend Oregon, builds distinct fusion frame art by uniting a reclaimed tree branch and a picture frame into a kind of their own, into an extraordinary piece of art. When finished, each one exhibits many individual characteristics, but in a singular, harmonized style. Each frame shows the individual history of every part as well as their combined story as one. Each is a chronicle, complete with scars and adornment.
Judith van Praag's insight:

The moment I set eyes on these creations I was sold, even if I'm not in the market at this very time to buy.
The original editorial about Daryll Cox's work calls the natural wood a branch, whereas I think that for this particular creation the gnarled piece used by the artist is more likely a root, or at least that in combination with a branch.

Given I've got a couple of antique ornamental frames in my studio, I'd be tempted to say it's the frame that was "reclaimed", the natural wood repurposed.

The times I've admired driftwood on the Pacific Northwest coast are many, and each time I reprimand myself for even thinking about bringing something larger than a finger home. 

Daryll Cox deserves kudos for ignoring that voice (if he's plagued by that kind of pesky consciousness at all) and for having the vision and ability to create something absolutely riveting.

 

Cox's work is inspiring. My fingers are itching to make something tangible, and my mind is set on marrying the frame I own to the root or branch I'll spot in the future, but for now I'll stay with the sifting and weighing of words,  such a pleasurable occupation, and the little devil on my shoulder, the eternal editor, is on furlough in Never, Neverland, so I can split hairs my own way. 

 

Have fun checking out roots and branches on the Fusion Frames NW site! And let me know what you're rooting for!

Want It Need It - Sparkling Chain Link Fence Sculpture by Soo Sunny Park.

Want It Need It - Sparkling Chain Link Fence Sculpture by Soo Sunny Park. | Creatives at Home on the Internet | Scoop.it
Soo Sunny Park
Judith van Praag's insight:

In order to get Soo Sunny Park's work on Scoop-it! I had to visit My Modern Met Online. I feel I cheated a little bit since the artist doesn't allow scooping nor pinning. Or perhaps she isn't aware the sharing isn't made possible?

 

Imagine the Aha! moment Parks must have had when she discovered each plain plexiglass piece reflects light in its own way. The effect is mesmerizing.

 

To capture the light (Let's not forget that ingredient) the chain link fencing material has to be shaped just so, this won't work with our straight forward garden fence. 

Or will it?
