Todays F Artist = Andrea Ford from Sylva, NC. In an effort to find Artist's who are closer to East Tennessee, I focused my search in FAA today. Page after page I searched for someone with the last name that begins with F. ▼▼▼ Read More :)
Before I even looked through her portfolio and visited her other websites, I was enthralled by her bio onDigital Consciousness. I was instantly a fan when I read this part of her bio: "I have come to accept I am an outsider, and these days I even welcome it. I
couldn't create the art I do if I thought like everyone else. Growing up in the
heart of Appalachia, I was raised to understand that happiness comes from the
simple, natural things in life. Not from what you have or can acquire." ▼▼▼ Read More :)
Today while I was searching for an artist that ends with the letter E ...... I came upon Art. Yes, that's right Art. This Art is absolutely BRILLIANT! Art is simply the best in creativity! Beyond compare! A Mastermind! Cunning in his advertising GENIUS!

" I am a senior citizen who took up the challenge of painting in 1988 when my husband passed away. It has become my therapy and passion ever since. I have had no formal training and learn where I can and I am a work in progress."

I was curious as to how colors where named. I googled it of course and there are many different answers......
Via Yahoo answers: According to Merriam-Webster Online, all go back to Old High German words for red, yellow and blue. This indicates that the names of these colors originated long ago during the time when the English (the germanic Anglo-Saxon tribes) were semi-barbaric and did not have writing. Thus no record survives of how these colors got their names or who named them.
Of the secondary colors, Green comes from the Old English word Growan, "to grow"; Orange comes from the Sanskrit word Narange, which is the word for the orange tree; Purple is from the Latin word Purpura, which refers to the fantastically expensive phoenician purple dye. Again, no one knows what person came up with these names.
In the mid-19th century, King Ludwig I of Bavaria longed to have something like the fine lime frescoes he saw in Italy. But the damp cold climate north of the Alps destroyed anything the artists did within a short period of time. So Ludwig called on Bavarian scientists to produce a paint that would survive the harshness of their climate. The scientists organized a group called The German Society for the Promotion of Rational Methods in Painting! The group was led by Adolf Wilhelm Keim, an unusually creative fellow who discovered a potassium silicate paint that was durable in damp environments. Keim thought the science of making paint needed standardization, so he and the group developed a list of names for colors. Of course, the same mineral from a different location might have variations in color, but at least there would be a common language to use when discussing pigments. Here are some of the color names from the list developed by Keim and the group, many of which we still use today: Ultramarine Blue, Naples Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Umber, Ivory Black, Red Ocher, Green Earth, Madder Lake, Zinc White, Indian Yellow. Buildings painted with Keim's paint are still in good condition today: Weisser Adler house in Stein am Rhein and the Town Hall in Schwyz, Switzerland that were redecorated in 1891, together with facades in Oslo (1895) and in Traunstein, Germany (1891).
On Answers..... Some dude or gal has an explanation....hmmmm, curious as to why this was chosen the best answer??????
Apparently a realy great guy called Andrew marshall named the colours. he also came up for most names in the English language. Some say that he craeted all languages and was some kind of superhuman with vastly superior intelligence. this let him come up with every language name and number he's a gr8 guy.
(I didn't correct this answer with spell check....could he have inhaled too much turpentine?)
The home that was P.E.N. Studio was sold and razed for development. What once housed P.E.N. Studio consisted of over 800 sq/ft. It has since been relinquished to aproximately 8 sq/ft. Masterpieces are stored in various storage units around SoKno and in every crook and cranny possible in the humble abode.
My son refers to my working space as a Rubik Cube.....boxes upon boxes contain thousands of dollars worth of art supplies and works in progress. He said he was going to come over one day while I was out kayaking and clean house for me. ♥ Memo to Jay: That would surely be the death of you and a lifetime in prison for Moi'. My ART and ART supplies are my LIFE and PASSION. ♥ Never come between an artist and their creative outlet. Just sayin'....... Love ya' Jay!
The creation of art is the passion. The completion of art only ignites another
creation. ~Jeffrey Breslow

My Mom says this piece is not for sale....."it's priceless!"
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain a child once we grow up. ≈ Pablo Picasso
Have you ever watched a child paint? Their complete and utter concentration? The scribbles, the dabs, the dribbles.......the sweeping motion of the paint brush? Oblivious to anything or anyone other than their new masterpiece? It is a gift to watch a child paint with complete abandon. Invest some time in your child today. The memories and the masterpieces are "PRICELESS".
Meandering around local blogs I came across this eventposted on Knoxviews.
