Art, Coffee, Tea and Blogs

August is a hot month. DUH, anyway I tend to get distracted easily when the heat goes up and often find myself redesigning my studio. And cleaning it up. It gives me a chance to look at some of the stuff I’m working on along side finished work. It also has become a time when I wander the internet even more than usual. So if you’re a regular reader you should enjoy the next group of stuff.

This is a list of gadgets that I think I’ll put on my holiday gift list. Feel free to choose one for me.Wallet-Ninja3-1024x682!aV22@:EtDv$$Xn/

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
