I know this will work because in the past I have used other vintage bowls and plates and even a picture or two cut from a magazine for my inspiration.
That's how this:
I have all kinds of plans and never know what I will get done, but I always know that my mom will love them.
The great thing about this is you can come, too.
We would love to have you join us. Sure it might be a bit hard for those of you in Alabama, Utah, Wales, or New Zealand - but if you are in the Metroplex you are welcome to come join the party. The directions are here and for more information check out the Hart Street Pottery webpage . Also, click on the HSP Calendar and scroll down to the Empty Bowls section to learn everything there is to know about this event in Fort Worth.
Janet Rodriguez, the owner of Hart Street, is wonderful. On the second Thursday of each month she hosts an Empty Bowls Paint Day for artists, and want-to-be artists like me, to gather at her studio and paint bisque bowls. Most of us bring plans and drawings and a few bring their own brushes and we work and visit from 10 in the morning until 6 in that evening. Some work an hour or two, some work all day. The results range from Totally Amazing to How Cute to I Wish I Could Do That.
Generous donors have bought the paint and there are paint brushes just waiting for a bowl painter/artist like you to show up and join us. The bowls stay at Hart Street where they are glazed and fired and made ready for their big day. The $3 donation to offset the cost of each bowl will be waived for the first bowl of all new artists who mention my blog on Thursday. Leave a comment below and show up next Thursday and I'll pay for your first two bowls.
It's creativity for a wonderful cause. We are using our talents to feed the hungry. This link will explain how all this got started and show you other Empty Bowls events around the country - there could be one near you.
If you will be in the Fort Worth-Dallas area on February 17th, and you are in the mood for some wonderful food and amazing art work, get your ticket now (all tickets must be bought in advance) and attend this year's Empty Bowls Event. Then one of these beauties could go home with you.
