Cameron, I find that the spartan interior of the AS helps me to focus, less distraction - more art!

My two Labradors provide plenty of distraction! I get most of my work done while they're sleeping.

Moved to California in the early 80s and got into the computer industry. It is amazing how easy it was to let it all go, push it way down. Made a great living, raised kids, then moved to the East. Once I made the decision to bring the art back, it all started to click back into place. It hasn't been easy, but just taking that first step was monumental. Built a house, remodeled a house, and finally decided I had to stop creating projects to keep me from going from the "house" decorating arts to the true arts that I loved so long ago.

So, now it's your turn. If we got a rally together - who out there would like to attend?
That's so true!

I would consider a rally ---- locally though ---- until I get my axles replaced, I'm staying close to home!

I can only go to a rally if it's in my back yard. I don't have a tow vehicle

Artists

Great ideas! I am going to find space for my sketching supplies in my camper.It sounds like we have all put our creative talents away for our careers and raising families. If you have an artist's rally, maybe drawing lessons could be offered or oil painting demonstations.Is there any one who does caricatures or chaulk drawings? I have been taking my guitar to practice while camping, but I am always afraid I may be disturbing the neighbors. Thanks for suggesting this quiet and relaxing idea. I am excited to go find all my art supplies.

Jane Kiskaddon owns a Bambi, paints in the Bambi, and features the Bambi in some of her pieces. Several NorCal unit members have bought her paintings featuring their rigs.

As they say, check-it-out.

One more lady who works in her AS. She used to auction on e-bay (where I found & purchased one of her works), but I guess now she is just on her own website. They are quite unique!

Artists in Airstream

I, just this summer, retired from 26 years of Art teaching and dream of getting on the road in our Airstream, to paint and visit the places where art is happening. Unfortunately fuel prices and stockmarket trends have slowed me down. Places like Santa Fe, Taos, etc. are the kind of destinations I have in mind. My retirement funds are about 50% in the stock market. What was 50% is now much less :-(. I would be interested in communicating with other artists about the traveling studio, or remote Airstream studio concept. I am going to try to do it in the Spring.
cheers, bill b.

ncbambi - yesterday totaled 2008 AS

You don't know how wonderful it was to log onto the forum and see all the positive responses to artists in airstreams. Yesterday, sad to report that the "bambi" was rolled on the I-26 going from NC to FL. Just a fluke accident, and thank God that no one was hurt, but the bambi is gone, and seeing it laying on the freeway was very sureal.

So all you artists, I need all the positive energy out there to help make this rally a reality now more than ever. I would like to possibly make the rallies regional, so that everyone would have a chance to attend in different areas. I also teach classes, and think it would be a great idea to make this a real learning, sharing experience.

We are in the throws of working with the insurance company, and had to leave bambi in SC. Moving all the contents out in the shortest time possible, was a test of both of us. We are looking forward to getting a new "baby" - since we only had this new AS only 2 months. Since I am relatively new at this, how do we go about organizing a rally? Any suggestions, comments, etc. would greatly be appreciated.

So sorry to hear about your Bambi and thankful that nobody was hurt. Stuff can always be replaced, people not so much.

Artist Rally

Sorry to hear you rolled your Bambi but I am glad to hear everyone is fine.To help you get your mind on other things; when you plan the rally consider asking if the camping facility will allow vendors to set up. Also is there adequate parking for the public to be able to come and view the artist's works.Consider State Fairgrounds that have camping facilities.Have fun planning the Artist's Rally.My son is in Pharmacy School in Buies Creek NC, the route you had your accident on sounds familiar.

Smile As rally

NCB,

Sorry to hear of your loss

As for starting a rally:

Start a new thread.
Suggest a location and date.
See if there is any interest.

The forum has Rally tools to help make starting one a bit easier. Check to rally pages to see how others have set it up.

Best to ya,
Michael

Finally back in FL

Hi all, thanks for the input on starting a rally, etc. Now that I am back in FL I have to concentrate on getting a new Safari, and dealing with the insurance company.

Please keep in touch on this thread, I don't want it to loose momentum - Artists unite!
