View Full Version : What else do you love?

I know that we all do much more than sculp. All artists seem to have many abilities. Writing is a biggy with most. (wish I could hear you sing, as I know you at least try.) Maybe a few examples? I love to write but get kinda sappy so I don't. I love to paint watercolor portraits. Also paint on tiles and fire them. They are my best sellers. I'm about to do my first solo show with my watercolor painting in a town not too far from here. I'm nervous but excited. (nervous because the framer said I could pick them up on my way to the show. Yikes!!) So write, show or sing us something....can't wait to hear about you. Scout
portraits are 15x22
truck(At Rust) 22x30

HI Scout I love motorcycles and racing and as an other artform tattoos. I am currently waiting on delivery of my 11th bike. Ive been riding for 15 yrs. I will post pics of bikes and my latest tattoo.

Tatoos? We should start a thread on tatoos too. Here's one for you.....
Used to have a Superhawk.

That's too funny!

Is that a pic of the back of your head? I had that photo sent to me somewhere.... let's see... I remember an email recently sent to me and it had that pic and said- "Imagine sitting behind him in church!"
If it's your pic then you should know it's getting distributed for all to enjoy via the vast network of emailers! :D
BTW- Just love the colors in the side profile of the older gent. Never seen hair that has a purple/blue hue like that but I love it. You are an excellent watercolor painter! Thanks for sharing and hope the show goes really well- it has to or the people have to be nuts! :eek:
I love to sing and do that regularly as I sculpt. Enjoy china painting, oils, landscaping, interior decorating and design.

art has always been a big part of my life but I found as I left college back in '96 that life became my love. I mean I worked so hard throughout my college life night and day completing projects or doing shows that I forgot how to live.
recently I went to a exhibit of a local folk artist , charlie lucas, and carried my 22 month old son with me. as we walked through the exhibit my son found the water fountain and began playing with it and enjoying himself. I then found myself more interested in how he played with the fountain than with any piece of art in the museum.
Art is always around , I can create and sell work anyday , but watching him play is art all in itself.

HappySculpting, Thanks, yeah, I got that picture from some site I saw somewhere. I thought it was funny. It's not me. I surf a lot.
toyholic, well said. Your generation of males is much better tuned in to family than in past generations, good for you.
I was wondering about your name, do you love toys, make toys, collect toys? If it's a collection, I'd like to see it. Scout.

What else? Come to think of it, one of the other things I love is the cyberspace. It is a good relaxing digression from working on my sculpture.
07-25-2006, 10:30 AM
Merlion, yeah, I spend far too much time on the computer. I have spent hours reading the old posts. I have a notebook going with information I learn on here. Do you have some favorite sites that we might enjoy? Does anyone? Scout

Cycling, and climbing volcanoes in lanzarote. Hard, physical work where you get pitched against your own limits, sorta. Worst experience: climbing a volcano using old mountain goat track. Met up with the goats....yeah, wild goats, not good with people....
07-27-2006, 06:20 AM
Cantab, that's funny. What did the goats do? Volcanos? Awesome.
Happysculpting, somewhere on here I saw some of your paintings of Victorian ladies. Were those yours? I'd like to see them again if you could post them. I know this is a sculpting forum but I thought it would be OK in this category. Someone tell me if I should not do this. I'm so terrible at sculpting yet so I wanted to show you what I did before I turned my attention to sculpting. If anyone else paints too, I'd like to see them. Thanks, Scout

With wild goats, you can only run. In my case, fall.
Lanzarote volcanoes are quite friendly, though, being dead. The hard work is the sheer climb, but looking out across the entire island from the top is just transcendental. It voids the mind...
07-27-2006, 09:36 AM
Which islands are those volcanoes located in? I'm not familiar with the name.
07-27-2006, 03:01 PM
Mountain Song - the Canary Islands, off Africa, Spanish territory.

There's a lot of different things I enjoy. I paint, although not paintings anymore for years now...instead I paint everything else :D . Other things: writing, gourmet cooking & baking, 2 special furry cats, piercings, making furniture, making 3-D funky clothes (really hard to describe and I don't have any pics at the moment), music, and on....
07-28-2006, 05:15 AM
Kathleenfen, Those threeD clothes sound interesting. Yes, we'd like to see them. Post when you can.
Anyone else do anything out of the ordinary like that? Let us see. Scout

Iíve currently been enjoying traveling by car across various destinations in the country. Not enough time in my schedule to go to all the places I want...for sure! Iíve drove through Connecticut, New York, Boston, Jersey, Michigan, Chicago, and TX, with various other stops along my travels this year.

I'm a published author and editor of several books, I love music and love to sing, I was a painter in oils, watercolors and airbrush for the first 15 plus years of my artisitc career before starting to sculpt twelve years ago. However, when I first started to sculpt it was like "coming home" and I really haven't looked back. I have had other loves but sculpture is my first love and I just want to grow and grow with it.
How wonderful that we get to be artists this life time!
I love metal detecting on the beach...Black and white ink drawings..
And Shopping for My wife.

I may have mentioned this on another thread but in the past 2 years I have developed an appreciation of ancient Greek and Roman coins after discovering that anyone can acquire them. They are an inspiration for bas-relief sculpting and instructive reference tools for such. They display a mastery of getting enough detail, with excellent form, to communicate an idea, and suppressing frivilous detail. the relief is higher than that found on comtempory coinage, so it is more sculptural.
On top of that, to hold a piece of ancient history,learn about that history, and imagine what was occurring when that coin was in circulation, and who may have held it, is also rather cool.
A couple of great websites to explore this are:
1. As a data base: http://www.wildwinds.com/coins
2. As a combined market of many reputable dealers where you can search for specific types and compare quality and prices : http://www.vcoins.com/ancient
A word of caution: This pursuit can become addictive, as well as one of my other loves....playing recreational and competetive soccer.

Hi, Besides sculpting, I also enjoy drawing, painting, especially watercolor and oils and writing poetry.
Whenever I go away, I ALWAYS visit the Art Museums and galleries. I love to see new work and what's going on, artwise in different places.
Outside of the arts, I enjoy cycling, I'm a roadie not a mtn. biker. I keep threatening to ride to my daughters house in Florida, 1700+miles and 5 weeks. Maybe I'll do it next spring.
I'm also a Yankee fan and keep up with them throughout the baseball season.
Have a great day,

i love to draw but away from the art world my favorite pasttimes are camping, i love to hike, and i dabble in astronomy. i love looking at the formations and colors of nebuli, and the planets. its just for fun though nothing serious. though i have talked to the astronomer of my school and he is willing to let me take an independent study in astrophotography next simester which i think will be awsome. :D
Ditto inferno221, I recently built a 20" dob.

I love music and the gear to an extreme. I am into vacuum tube amplifiers and high efficiency speakers, make my own cables etc. I also am into movies and have put together a very nice home theater system.
Here is a pic of my Single Ended 300B amplifier.
