Lotus Carroll1,774,490This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: "Wet." In celebration of "April Showers," but very flexible conceptually, our "Wet" theme allows you to interpret however you like. Get creative - we're looking forward to seeing what you all come up with! Here is where you enter your ONE "Wet" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) *Please read all rules (scroll down).* _Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified._ *Tips & Inspiration* There are so many possibilities for this theme - will you be underwater, in the rain, or soaking in the tub? Maybe riding some ocean waves or drowning in a lake? The possibilities are endless! Self Portraiture a la H2O Gallery on Flickr: http://goo.gl/NYwGKM Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away!

Firing up the wax pots to clean beeswax, to make encaustic medium. If I'm teaching a class with materials included, I'm going to need to make some paint, and this is how my paint starts.

Tomorrow is the start of Going, Going, Gone, for Jamberry. LOTS of wraps retiring in August. 

I REALLY hope the new hosting is set up soon for the Tougher Than Nails team website, and for AbigailMarkov.com. (I've been working on redoing it all week, but need the hosting before I can get any more done.) There is a lot of website work in my near future. this is fine with me.

Have wax in pots, teaching is on hold (my call), and I'm finishing off a jewelry order. 

I have an audio book (epic fantasy!) and a glass of rum. I may go sit in the tub to force myself to stop the busy work for distraction.

While those things set up, it's learning BuddyPress. Maybe a new domain. Maybe.

I'll post the album with all of them soon - just got Steve home from his first cataract surgery, so getting settled back in. (He's sleeping, and it went well we are told.)

Mani of the Day: Metallic Chrome Silver & Silver White Damask,retired. (http://bit.ly/1IpPMM3)

I know this would be a challenging one to get just right - chrome shows every tiny bump - but I love this one all the same. Since the White Damask is retired, I'd probably layer White Romance over instead. It's close to Damask.

Local Art Store wants to sell my encaustic paints. 

I'm trying to work out how do I need to label if they are NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN.

Especially the cadmium yellow.

Anyone? I've been through all the Gov links and articles, and am irked that I'm probably going to have to drop $45 on the damn ASTM guidelines.

I've been around too long to leave, and survived the deluge of YouTube trolls on top of that, so I'm still hanging around these parts.

Truth be told, I'm hoping that things improve with this change, and I can go back to posting and engaging the way I used to. It's been weird the past year or so.

That said, for those who want to keep on touch should things go sideways, here's my Facebook:

This article has some really great comments about what works so well on G+ like "For those of us who do remain on Google+, the service is one of the last quiet and civil corners of an increasingly contentious Internet."  Apparently G+ is being disconnected from YouTube and other Google products. No problem!  I'm here for the long-haul and deeply appreciate the folks I've met on G+ from all across the U.S. Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Greece, the UK, Iran, Australia, China, Japan.  I'm not going back to Facebook. ___I've been around too long to leave, and survived the deluge of YouTube trolls on top of that, so I'm still hanging around these parts.

They aren't necessarily making designing easier, but they sure do make it easier to not worry so much about the design.

Especially since it's after 10pm already. It may be time to play some Sims 4.

#ArtistsAgainstTerror  

You know, I really dig this idea. There's lots of complex history scrambled up in my head that explain why I like the concept so much, but detangling that right now is proving difficult.

So, excerpts from the article:
The goal? Hijack the terrorist group’s message and replace it with a girl that’s oh-so-adorable.

ISIS-chan wears the terrorist group’s black clothing. She has green eyes and dark hair. She’s 19. And if she’s holding a knife, it’s only because she loves to slice and eat delicious melons.

“They did it to make these people — who try to be terrifying — look ridiculous,” GenKnoxx told CNNMoney. “That’s the idea. To de-fang ISIS.”

The group does have some simple rules: No insulting Islam — or showing its religious symbols. Always respect images of hostages. No gore. No porn.

So, artists, who all can add art for #ISIS-chan?

Today I was asked if I'd plan and teach an Intro to Encaustic Painting class, locally. 

Oh, god, the irony.

(Also, raw, naked Fear. I have some planning to do.)

Steve and I went kayaking and fishing today.

Somehow, I caught a bonnnethead shark - about 3ft long. Female. (Males are smaller, by a significant amount.) Not dangerous sharks, bottom feeders, and this is as big as they get. I was just dragging a small, very not alive, shrimp as we paddled about.

Steve helped get her off the hook, and released back. She was so beautiful. The photos don't do her, or her strength, justice. She dragged me around a bit, and fought hard for her size.

Besides the shock and awe of being that close to a shark, all I could think was how beautiful she was... and how on earth were we going to let her go?! (We managed it just fine. No tips needed!)

And so the wheel turns full circle. The fake news is now the actual news, while the 'real' news is often so ridiculous as to be beyond satire.___Well played Onion. Well played.

"In each of these environments, Kasumovic suggests, a recent influx of female participants has disrupted a pre-existing social hierarchy. That’s okay for the guys at the top — but for the guys at the bottom, who stand to lose more status, that’s very threatening. (It’s also in keeping with the evolutionary framework on anti-lady hostility, which suggests sexism is a kind of Neanderthal defense mechanism for low-status, non-dominant men trying to maintain a shaky grip on their particular cave’s supply of women.)

“As men often rely on aggression to maintain their dominant social status,” Kasumovic writes, “the increase in hostility towards a woman by lower-status males may be an attempt to disregard a female’s performance and suppress her disturbance on the hierarchy to retain their social rank.”"

Chapter 3 is done - introducing Judge James. He was a great mentor of mine and was the main person who kept me going in my work with inmates. An incredible man and someone that was an honor to work with.

I welcome your support of my writing and hope you'll consider sponsoring me. Please feel free to share. Their stories need to be told. We are in desperate need to reform our prison system and I hope that my work will help.

"The person who fails the most will win. If I fail more than you do, I will win, because in order to keep failing, you gotta be good enough to keep playing, right? So, if you fail cataclysmically and never play again, you've only failed once, but if you're always there, shipping, putting your work into the world, creating, and starting things, you will learn. You will learn to see more accurately, you will learn the difference between a good idea and a bad idea, and you will keep producing."

These paintings were painted about a year apart, maybe a year and a half. A year and a half that I took off from painting. 

It never fails to surprise me how well my art reflects me, and what is going on at the time.

Both Encaustic on panel.

Alright, time to take a break from art and jewelry research, and switch over to Jamberry gear.

Still have a few samples to send out! (We'll likely have more at the end of the month to send, too, if you miss getting your sample request in!)
