One of my dear followers mentioned to me that my coloring books:


will be a great party favor gift at the events like weddings or celebrations, or Birthday Party entertainment. And yesterday, I was a witness myself how true that statement was. 
My friend and I had an art field trip to a De Young Museum. It was educational and wonderful day. After driving in traffic back home, I realized how tired I was. When we landed resting after our productive “rest” in the city; I pulled my coloring books stacks and we started coloring, while listening to a nice relaxing music, talking and truly enjoy the end of the lovely day with all our hearts and souls. 

I am so glad that all my customers and followers can get a simple joy by just coloring the drawings, and be a part of a creative Team 🙂

How often do we think: Oh, I need to remember that! or: Gosh! I had this idea a while ago, why I didn’t write it down?! or: Man! It is hard to explain in words; but I can draw a sketch how I visualize this project. And wouldn’t be it wonderful to keep all ideas in one specific place rather than in your head or any electronic device?! 
For me it turned out that I’d rather write and doodle on a paper than trust an electronic device with my creative ideas. 
Some people like to write, others like to scribble. I like to do both. It helps me to think when I doodle, sketch my thoughts.
I made a mental note one day when discussing my business plan with an artist friend. When the conversation was over, I rushed to the notebook to write my idea, and then I started drawing right on the edges of the same page. While doing so, I realized that page was not enough and I moved to another page to finish sketching. Later on, when I returned to my doodles, it was hard to find which sketch belonged to which idea. A usual artistic mess, I thought! I’ll get back to it later. But it never happened. Then, I started placing carefully my thoughts and my visual “thoughts” on one spread of the notebook and realized it was much more convenient planning. 
Wow, how simple! 
Any creative person might benefit from such type of journal. Why don’t I make it into an Artful Planner. And I did.
I published my new designs on Amazon for people around the world to enjoy and take action. It helped me, it will certainly help other people to keep their diaries, plans, thoughts, and visual pictures in one place.

Classroom – Watercolor Collage

abstract, art that sells, artist, bestselling artist, class, classroom, collage, create, creative, idea, light bulb, Sztukowski, Uncategorized

I gave this collage quite a long name: “When Heart is in
Watercolors Bright Ideas Will Come”. Long but so simple and so self-explanatory.
This collage was born in my Art 106 Drawing & Composition class that I am
taking this semester. The assignment was to show a class room using one-point
perspective and based on our real facility. We could also add either personal
meaning or pursue some theme. Materials are glue, paper, magazine cut-outs or
whatever we could find and apply.
My idea did not wait too long to be born. And as I used to
have a watercolor class in the same room, and I am now a proudly devoted
watercolor artist, I have decided to organize my “Classroom” placing my
watercolor art on the walls and making all students look like me. Basically, it
is me in the different stages of the art process. And yes, when I create I have
that “light” glowing in my mind. Yet when I am tired (you see the girl at the
far left desk?) the ideas are “turned off”. I cut my art for walls, the still
life, and the little hearts from my old postcards and calendars. And the Blick
art supply magazine helped me to make the space look more like a classroom or studio.
The lights for the lightbolbs came from Michael’s cute cards supply shelves.
While cutting the postcards with my watercolor, I had
another bright idea. There are a lot of sketch-like, palette pieces, and drafts
watercolor around my studio. I could definitely use them one day to create some
decorative art pieces and give them a new life.
Studying about collages in my art history class last
semester I’ve learned that collage art was basically initiated by Picasso and
his artist friend…. They looked for a different materials for their art and
started combining their found objects on one flat space, would it be a piece of
cardboard or wood. Collage in its Nature is brining various materials in one
organized space and giving them sometimes totally new meaning… Courtesy to WiKi
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collage
The term collage derives from the French “coller”
meaning “
glue”. This term was coined by both Georges
Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century
when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.
