I’ve finally taken the final leap towards the completion of my Ophelia project. When it is all done, I will go in depth on what this journey has done for me.
In the mean time, enjoy a peek at the 5″ x 7″ prints for my Indiegogo Perks.

We are trying a new little venture:
During which I drew this:
I have a new page on the site: Displaying Glass. This is all about how to hang and display glass. Harder than it sounds, I know. Please bookmark the page and check back for updates. Also, email me if you have any suggestions you’d like to see added on there.
As part of a fundraiser for the Florida Ballet, a group of artists including myself, were allowed to observe and draw during class times. The final art will be auctioned off on April 13th.

And this is my entry, real silver leaf on glass:
Detail of the skull:
I have a client who lives quite a distance from me and we used Google Hangout so that he could watch what I was drawing for his custom ordered sushi plate.
Here is the result:
It was a great experience. I have to remember to do this again.
The Seventh Street Gallery has the pleasure of introducing two CoRK Arts District artists: painter, photographer and author Joanelle Mulrain; and designer and glass artist Helen Cowart. Each artist continues experimenting with her chosen medium(s), pushing its inherent constraints and challenging herself in the desire to create and communicate the extraordinary.
After 20 years as a professional graphic designer, Helen Cowart discovered the world of glass with its mystery, beauty, fragility, and creative possibilities. Kiln-formed glass reawakened Cowart’s passion for the unexpected. She discovered that glass had a life of its own, filled with color and light, having a fluidity and interacting with its environment in unexpected ways. For herself, she found renewed artistic passion, inspiration, and freedom.
Joanelle Mulrain returned to her paintbrush, camera, and pen after a great blue heron landed on a branch within mere feet of her. With the click of the shutter, she captured the moment, complete with a full moon hanging in an indigo sky. It was an epiphany. From that moment on, she built her world around what she loved most: her family, friends and patrons; her art; the complexities of the world and our environment; where we have come from and where we are going – these latter puzzlements finding expression in her art. Mulrain’s works require her patience and reflection, and she engages the viewer or the reader through them. She will be signing her book, “Re-Rooting: Life’s Journey.”
The reception is Saturday, February 9, from 5:00-8:00PM at the Seventh Street Gallery, 14 South 7th Street (across from Lulu’s).The show can also be seen the following two Saturdays during the farmers’ market hours, 9-1:00PM. As this is a historic property, it is not handicap accessible. For questions, directions, or alternative viewing times, please call 904 432-8330.
