This morning I found a message in my inbox, from my acquired aunt Paula Jarvis. She signaled a blog to me, the blog of Carole Marine. "Carol Marine" --Paula writes-- "does daily paintings, sells almost all of them and she teaches around the country. Now living in Oregon, she lived in Texas for many years until the recent fires burned her home to the ground."
I've found her painting truly amazing and beautiful.Some of them very humorous. And it seems she mostly paint on small square shaped gesso boards. People can bid on each of the paintings. I particularly like her still life paintings, like this one titled "Scary Cherry":
To see more of her paintings, go to Carole Marine's blog.

Through Arte Motu Junior, kids will familiarize with the concept of public art, and will create art for the public space of the coastside, focusing mostly on 3D art and art suited for outdoor. There will be 2-3 projects per year. Projects are mostly proposed by kids, and guided by 1-2 Arte Motu artist volunteers. Each project will include a 1 to 2 days workshop. Every Arte Motu Junior member is welcome to submit their ideas for projects.
ARTE MOTU Junior members are invited to submit their art for art exhibits, explore gallery possibilities, produce their own art merchandise (such as prints, postcards, etc.) to be sold at Arte Motu events. Arte Motu Junior members will decide which school or cause will benefit 25% of sales.
ARTE MOTU Junior will meet on November 4th, 2011, at the Pigeon Point Fog House, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.
At this event kids will:
- attend a small presentation of the first project, called "Prayer Stones", proposed by Frances Olive Markham, 4th grader at Pacific Elementary School in Davenport, CA
- execute 1 quick art project
- schedule the workshops to finish the project by deadline.
If your kid decides to participate to this project, the fee will be $30 per kid (20% discount for more than one kid per family) payable at the event by cash or check. The fee includes 2 workshops, materials and tuition, exhibit organization, press release, and opening.
THE EVENT IS RSVP ONLY. Please, reply if you and your kid(s) will participate by October 28th through email or by calling Rosanna at 650-619-1593.

Until the 16th, the Frieze Art Fair will be raving in London, UK. The Frieze Art Fair happens every October at Regent's Park. Something to keep in mind if you are travelling in the fall in that part of the world. The Frieze Art Fair "features over 170 galleries from around the world, providing a unique opportunity to see and buy work by leading artists". Each year, the Tate selects works from the Fair. This year works by artists Helena Almeida, Melanie Smith, Alina Szapocznikow were acquired by the Tate Gallery. The Stand Prize was instead awarded to artist Gavin Brown. Check out the art via a virtual online tour of the fair.
ArtLog recommends to keep an eye on four particular artists present at the fair. Read the ArtLog's article.
