Mixed Media Art. Photography. Inspiration.

One World One Heart 2011. It's Here!


Intro
Hi there!  The One World One Heart event is here!  Grab a nice cup of coffee and let me officially introduce myself.  I'm Esther Orloff, the "E" behind E Makes Art.  I am a mixed media artist, photographer, and occasional jewelry maker from So. California.  For 15 years I worked as a decorative artist and muralist, and I am now a stay at home mom who sneaks into her studio whenever she can...or else nobody's  happy!

Some Of My Favorite Things
  • learning new techniques
  • travel (esp. to Europe...sigh...)
  • rusty bits 
  • copper
  • peacock blue
  • tons of texture and personality
  • beautiful light and shadows
  • THAT moment......you know....that excitement you feel when you've perfectly captured "it"....in whatever medium you are using at the time.


What It's About
My blog is a place where I share what I've created with a bit of my process and details/materials, etc, in part  to document it for myself and in part to hopefully inspire and help others.  My photography is also a huge part of my blog.  I LOVE taking photos and carry my camera with me most of the time. There were MANY times in the past when I missed the perfect photo and still kick myself for not having my camera with me...such as the time I saw that fantastic dog sitting on his owner's lap in the front seat of the car, hanging out the window, with I swear the biggest smile I've ever seen, and more importantly...wearing red goggles!!  So now my camera is pretty much attached to me permanently...it's become part of my personality.

One of you will win this!  Ooh La La!!


One World One Heart
Find inspiring blogs from around the world and have a chance to win fantastic goodies at every stop!  To participate and/or see the lists of blogs participating click on the picture at the TOP of this post.  I will announce the winner of my giveaway on Feb. 17th by posting the name on my blog and contacting by email.  For a chance to win my giveaway you must...
  • leave a comment on THIS post
  • leave your blog link/email 
  • Again...PLEASE make sure I have a way to contact you if you win, or I will have to pick someone else!!

What Can You Win?
My giveaway is the mixed media Eiffel Tower piece up above.  It's an 8"x10" canvas board with my photograph taken in beautiful Paris.  I embellished it with lots of texture from gel medium that was troweled through a stencil,  painted it with fluid acrylics, then drew over areas with a pen.  Here are some detail shots...




I figure since this is an international event (and I love Paris)...why not celebrate that with an international art piece!  Good luck everyone!!

If you don't want to win my giveaway, but at least want to say hi and/or have me come visit your blog that's fine too!  Just tell me to not include you in the drawing in your comment.


Comments for the drawing are now closed.  Thanks everyone!

Digital Misfit said...

GORGEOUS art! I love the texture and dimension added with the gel medium and sketching.
I used to carry my camera EVERYWHERE. Then one day I realized I rarely took it out, so I left it home.
That day - TRUE STORY - a man in a fedora and shorts rolled past me in front of the courthouse downtown - on a UNICYCLE!
I still kick myself for missing out on that shot.
Thank you for participating in OWOH this final year.

Whew! Did it. Said it 5X...fast!
I just had to browse around your blog, looking at all the goodies (rubbing hands together here). I had never heard of Shadow Shot Sunday and just had to snoop it out. Especially knowing I'm not the only person who has missed that great shot, once in a lifetime chance. Sell it to National Enquirer, retire happy shot. I mean, come on! And, I am going to follow your blog, not only for the great art, but because you used an Audrey Lorde quote! I so cried when she passed. So, consider me sold on EMakesArt! Tina

Holly said...

I've really enjoyed looking through your blog, and will return! The pictures you take are wonderful and the art you make is so full of texture, love it! Thanks so much for the chance to win such a beautiful piece of art!

Greetings from snowy Massachusetts. I am a So. Cal native (living in New England the past 8 years). I love your work. You have a lovely talent and ohh, I love Paris. I had a wonderful 3 days there with my Beloved back in Oct. 2001. I have a room in our home decorated in a Paris theme. This would go perfectly in that room! We share a lot of interests so, I am now a follower :)

Hi Esther,
I never knew there were so many creative people in this world. I am blog hopping, for the past two days ever since I learnt about the wonderful OWOH concept. You know what, all this creativity made me go out and buy some books to be ready for next year (I am an eternal optimist and hope the show will go on forever). That said, I wanted to say Hi and send some sunshine from sunny Mumbai, India.
This is a beautiful door gift with amazing textures.
Do drop by my blog sometime to say Hi, look at the photographs and absorb life in Mumbai.
Have a nice weekend.
