Welcome to new readers, and welcome back to current readers and followers. My screen name is Boud, by which I'm often referred to, but my real life name is Liz. This is my art blog (I also have a general purpose blog, Field and Fen here )
Art the Beautiful Metaphor, a joke relating to soccer, the beautiful game, is the blog where I show my current and past art in a range of media, monotypes
ink and wash watercolors
here with reverse drawing on glass
what's up in the studio
where I also review other people's exhibits
Homefront, a wonderful local organization helping with homeless emergencies and with people's need to restart their lives and whose artists show great work
Ellarslie, Museum of the City of Trenton
Mercer County College
and generally give an artist's eye view of the world and gladly welcome input from readers and observers, artists or not.
Sometimes I'm accompanied by my character dolls, the Dollivers, seen above modeling a handknit scarf I designed and made for a friend, five knitted creations with a large wardrobe each, to exhibits and to hindrance in the studio...they mainly live at Field and Fen, though, and if you like them, you can wander over there to see more of their exploits.
There will be a small giveaway to a random commenter on this blogpost, and to see it, scroll back a little way for a picture and description. No need to have a blog in order to enter, no need to do more than comment in here and you're in. I'll do the drawing on February 15 and announce the winner in here and get an address from him or her to ship the item to.
Meanwhile, browse enjoy, ask, comment, and thank you for being here.
