Free Magic Show

May 18th, 2010 at 07:55 pm

The more I hang out around my local art association members, the more I am amazed! What a pleasure to be part of great creativity, which undoubtedly rubs off and helps my own right brain think up stuff.

Quick examples -- I'm working on a new collection of science themed gifts (boxed and perfect for graduations) like these:

Seismograph Earrings

Oscillating gold tone wire resemble the earthquake recording!

Celestial Silver

Pure heaven in sterling, stone, and swarovski crystal. Adjustable ring conveys sparkling affection.

Pleasant Surprises
Last weekend a young, single fellow who is a part time artist (with a day job in contracting) had a 'house party' for friends and locals. The attraction was to paint a rock with a 'magic' theme, prizes for the best entries, and a gratis magic show.

I went with my 4th grader who is not yet altogether self-conscious about what/where she does and who also likes to make stuff.

Historic Home
Upon arriving, the first amazement was that this fellow rents a BIG HUGE BEAUTIFUL historic 110 year house on fourteen acres. Omgosh, what a treat. It's pretty bare (he's a bachelor c'mon), but wonderful. I would've never known this place existed.

Painting and Participating
We both got busy, there were dozens of other kids and adults painting from a selection of big and small rocks. There were at least a couple hundred little paint pots to choose from. It was funny how SERIOUS most folks were.

I am not a painter. All I did was try to make a shoe like Dorothy wore from the Wizard of Oz. (how hard would it be to make a red shoe and 'foot', there even was red glitter). My kid though did a very respectable unicorn!

First Magic Show
In keeping with the theme, my friend had a semi-professional magician give a very nice show! My child's first experience! We loved it, he was good enough to fool the adults and tell jokes the whole time for the kids.

Happy Ending
We didn't win a prize, but am amazed at some of the great ideas other's painted. The winning entry depicted two hands gripping the stone on each side, with a magic ball floating in between. COOL!

The day after we went to pick up our entries, and my friend who threw the party was so kind and gave out coffee mugs which have his paintings screened on them (he has them made for promotional uses) for participating. Very welcome gift!!
