About me…

240451_4501767820291_644505702_o

Hello! Thank you for visiting ‘Making it up as i go’ (2me4art.com)…that is all of us, is it not? I am a self taught artist, photographer & blogger. I’d include writer, but i am still learning how to accomplish that without sounding like an idiot. I have a terrible habit of writing, then hitting ‘Publish’ or ‘send’ and then editing at a much later date, if ever. Which is why you will find errors throughout.

I am a Vermonter to my core…alas life as seen fit to have me live out my days in Alabama. I do love Alabama with the exception of August, which is akin to Hell, i would imagine.

I share my little corner of Birmingham, Alabama (& my trips home to Vermont & trips to the Gulf Coast) with my camera, paintbrush, colored pencils, acrylic, oil, oil pastels, etc and i my art projects with my art class kids. I also LOVE buying junk & making it into something cool. It is more fun than shopping like a normal person. I Love to garden. I love growing everything…if something i plant dies, it wasn’t meant to be & now i can go buy something else! I plant flowers, herbs, veggies, blueberries, strawberries…i am happiest outside playing in the dirt.

I am combining all my loves together here.  I will warn you however,  I do ramble on & babble. And all my writing mistakes? forgive me, i have a hard time sitting still. I’ve got stuff to make.

 

thanks for the visit.

Peace,

amy

 

 

p.s. I am a huge BUY LOCAL fan. I visit cool, privately owned stores around me & shoot their cool stuff. I do this because small business owners are our neighbors. These brave neighbors make our small cities or towns a better place. It means our money stays in our towns. We have to support them, otherwise we will be a world of ugly corporate giants like Walmarts (gasp) everywhere. And we cannot allow that to happen.  Buy Local…easy enough…shop Farmer’s Markets, Art galleries, Nurseries, and Gift shops.

  2. I’m pretty trigger happy on occasions of hitting the publish button to only to go back and spent time editing. I know the feeling Amy. I’d love to know more about your photography? Do you make a living from it? Glad you dropped by Rearview Mirror 🙂

    1. Hi Robert…glad to know i’m not the only one who publishes posts without editing until later. What would you like to know about my photography? Really, i do make some money shooting family photos & events. Not enough to live on, but enough for groceries. I’ve been shooting since i was 8 years old. I was developing & printing when i was in high school & making money shooting friends & some families. I really take photos because i have to. I see so many beautiful things begging to be taken, so i do take them. I decided to share what i shoot here because, really…my family has seen enough already. I am an artist, i work by commission only. That is where i make my money. I’ve got three right now. So i’ve been painting all morning. I LOVE the name of your blog! I look forward to seeing your work on my reader. Thanks for writing! ~amy

      2. I always thought i am an artist because i have no self confidence at all, i pretty much felt failing art was to be expected. But now i think that as children we had to do everything in school, even if we sucked at it. As adults, we chose the things we are good at & avoid the rest. Adults are far too intimidated to try art again, because they know they will not get the results they want without failing. but we have to fail at everything first, it is how we learn. which is why i teach adults super simple toys or something silly to start out with. I am going to post, “how to draw everything in the whole wide world” this post is years in the making, but i’ve broken what we see in life into the simplest way possible. i hope you’ll check it out. ~amy

      Hi Virginia!
      I remember you. Is it possible for me to have a copy of that photograph? My email is asaabsfables@gmail.com. I wish i could have been more present that night, but my son wasn’t feeling good & he made sure that when it was time to go downstairs, he demanded most of my attention. Thank you for your compliments on my post. Had i known it would have been read by so many from the church, i would have edited it better…i thought about going back & improving it, but since its been read by so many, i’d feel guilty if i changed. Thank you for taking the photo of me with the painting. I ALWAYS take good photos of my commissions before they leave me, but this time, i wasn’t given a lot of time to complete it & have only iPhoto pics i took to send to Rabbi Miller as updates. I really would love to have your photo. ~amy

      1. Hi Amy
        Beautiful work, both art and photos. One of my childhood friends is also an artist in Florida but doesn’t do blogs or social media so it’s great to follow an artist whose work is so nice

        I assume you are a fellow tribe member (although I am Jewish only in name; totally non religious although my parents are neurotic – lol)

        Thanks so much for following my blog. Unlike you (per your own words), my art is my writing and storytelling skills. My blog will certainly never get a huge following like yours because sadly, people gravitate to visual cues more than writing but I appreciate everyone that takes time to follow and I hope I can present my written art as beautifully as your “actual art”

I can learn so much about technique & i can find people from all over the world. It is so wonderful to find a personal way to connect with like minded people.
      Playing with M was a wonderful experience b/c she is my daughter’s best friend & she had hair down to the small of her back, she came in with my daughter to show me her new haircut & I begged her to let me shoot her. The soft curves image jumped out at me while I was walking around on a very hot day, i think i was drawn to the softness of the curve among all that brick & steel.

      I am very grateful for your words. I am grateful that you believe in what I’m trying to do. Southern life through the eyes of a Vermonter. In my small town of Montpelier (Vermont) every shop was privately owned & the residents knew if their town was to thrive, they must support it. We have, in Birmingham, far too many franchises pushing out the American Shopkeeper. It is my hope to bring attention to the bravery of our family owned businesses. Wish me luck! Thank you so much. ~amy

    Mushing in Vermont? Who knew 🙂 Amazing to watch the power of the dogs as they worked together as a team. And the mushers were all such wonderful people who clearly cared deeply about their dogs. There’s something very special about rescue dogs; I had a Golden Retriever mix rescue – best dog ever. Lucky Husky to have you.

I need the younger ones that are still uninhibited by what their results may be–they don’t worry about the end result only the process…i.e. living in the moment. It is that age that has freed my own limits of exploration. I taught Sophie all that I could & she excelled, the rest is up to her & who she wants to be! Its very nice to talk to another art teacher. I’ve done 15+ before. Too much texting, whispering, condescending. I wish you luck!! Thank you, Sophie. ~amy

      I miss Vermont to my very marrow. When I was a Vermonter, I read books about the South. I thought they were so interesting. It is not. Southerners know my accent is not theirs, I am treated kindly but not as a familiar. Summers here are too hot & we treat them just like Vermonter’s treat winter, only opposite- run from a/c to a/c. So I miss summers! Last time I went home, I called my Alabama husband, bawling- that I didn’t want to go home, ever. I will move home someday.
      You are an easy man to follow-I have in my WordPress reader, Vermont- most of the photographs belong to you & they are wonderful. My son, he is ten, LOVED your little man series. Thank you for giving me a bit of home, John. ~amy

      Thank you for the nomination, it means so much. When I have more of the same award, wordpress seem to remove it off after a few days. Unsure as to why they seem to have the right to do that. You compliment means so much. I am off to Vermont this morning, so I will not be posting until I return in a week or so. When I get back, look out I’m going to have a million new pictures! Thank you, amy

    Hi Amy, thanks for your very generous post and reference to In My View on your blog. No need to link back. I just wanted to recognize you and let you know how much I enjoy your blog and photos. The rules for some of these awards can be quite taxing, and I’d rather you spend your time blogging or doing something else rather than trying to figure out award protocols 🙂 Have a great day! — Rob
