Architectural Color

Interior color selection

People often have emotional attachments to colors, which can make choosing home colors confusing and subjective. I have been selecting interior and exterior house colors for over 12 years and enjoy helping people choose colors that personalize their homes.

Additionally, I have supervised paint crews and painted houses myself. That allows me to make specifications that will make your painter’s job more efficient, which may affect how much time and money the project will take.

We schedule a time to meet in the space and to see what you are needing, preferably in daylight hours. If you are moving into a new home, it might be helpful for me to see your existing house so I can get a sense of your style and furnishings. It usually tramadol online cod takes an hour or two to decide on a set of colors using swatches. I help match and complement existing architectural details. I try to listen to you and deliver colors that express what you want. Additionally, I can paint samples or create digital images with sample palettes to help you imagine the change.

My paint deck has traveled all over Austin, and each house reflects the personality and style of the owner. I enjoy seeing how happy my clients are once they see their fresh, updated space.

I would appreciate the opportunity to help you enjoy your home more.

CASE STUDY: As the Design Team Artist for the East 7th Street Corridor Project, I worked with urban planners, engineers, designers and City of Austin department representatives and department managers to identify opportunities to make the streetscape more aesthetically pleasing. We designed and located wayfinding order tramadol cod overnight delivery obeliscos along the corridor at important intersections and recruited artists through the Art and Public Places to enhance the obeliscos. I researched the history of the neighborhoods, helped with public meetings, and selected colors and materials for the project. The final result is a beautiful streetscape that fulfilled exactly what the Design Team was looking for.

Letter to a young lady

Dear J. C.,

It has been a pleasure to watch you grow over the last 6 years since I met you. Your family is one of my inspirations for my own dream of family, I did not grow up in a safe or loving family, and it is truly exciting to me to see how your parents care for you, enjoy you, teach you, and encourage your growth. Please count yourself as very fortunate, and don’t take that lightly.
This letter will be too advice-y, but I write it like I am writing a letter to myself at a younger age. I wish I had stronger voices of encouragement and direction in my life then, but I was a troubled kid and it took a while for me to find my way.  I’m really curious and persistent though, and the life I searched for and created for myself and my family is unique and delightful, and very worth the effort. I alway follow the scent of what interests me, and that is how I found my way out of the fog of pain, doubt and fear.
Learn how to trust yourself. You will be in many, many situations where You are all you have. You are enough, more than enough. Your body is packed with millions of years of genetic evolution that will help you survive and thrive if you listen to the information it tells you. Your feelings and your instincts have lots of information that your mind uses to make decisions. You need to make decisions based on the next right thing for yourself. You don’t know what is coming far down the path. The best decisions are good for you first, and simultaneously for the people you care about. If it is not good for you, it is not good for them either.  So don’t let your decisions be swayed by the manipulation of others. Once you’ve get tramadol prescription online made a decision, it is your will that is the muscle of action. Your will demonstrates your integrity. Whether you choose to act in a way that others judge as good or bad, stand by your actions. Act in a way that you can own your choices.
Your self/body is sacred and unique. Though I can attest that one can heal, you cannot replace your self/body with one that doesn’t hurt. The intimate space of your heart and your sexuality is the most precious thing you have. Know your own value. Pain is a learning tool, but do not cause yourself unnecessary suffering. Sample, experiment, and test everything, so you can learn what interests you and what does not, and make the distinction. Plan to care for your body as if you really want it to last in health 100 more years. There are no shortcuts for eating healthily and exercising. Do not be afraid of hard work. Fight for what is worth fighting for. These things your family has already taught you, they are very important.
Though there is much writing that summarizes this better, I will try to be brief: show up, do good work, stand by your words, be kind, be curious, ask good questions.  All of those things will keep you strong and able to laugh and cry for all that you will come across on your path. These things I learned from reading, talking with friends, and taking risks to get what I want.
Throw your shoulders back, take a deep breath, and feel your own power. You are a free, young woman with more choices about your life and how you live it than any other generation of women. For millions of years, your predecessors have taken the risks, and taken the hits, to create the opportunities and choices you now have at your fingertips. Think big for yourself.

Your friend if ever you need one,
Jennifer Chenoweth

Arthouse Kids

Erin Gentry from Arthouse asked me to give a presentation to their summer kids’ camp about sculptural space. So I asked the kids to think about the space between each of us and the space our bodies take up. As a group we can contract, order tramadol online cod expand, overlap and connect. We drew and measured the space around our bodies.

Vitruvian kids!

Warp and Weave

Eye contact, a conversation. Names exchanged, a few pleasantries. Enough specific details to remember.

A little thread goes out, a string, a heart string. A connection created by one person being open to another.
Connection is a way in to someone’s story, to his or her experience, from one’s authentic self.
This is where attachment begins, if impermanent. A string between one and another, a line between two points.
But how long the string? Like a thread off the spool. It may unfurl a few inches, maybe feet, maybe long enough to be a great long tangle. Maybe with enough repetition and shared experiences to create a pattern.

Then if we acknowledge the connection between the points, the loop is closed. And then we keep connecting the points and the thread weaves between them. And we busy our hands and cross the points from the original thread, and before we know it, we have a fabric, or as Ledia where to buy tramadol Carroll’s friend says, the interesting tapestry of life.

We create the fabric of our lives from the connections we make, share and tighten. We create safety nets and community. We can allow ourselves to be vulnerable from the trust that comes from a history of these connections.

My thoughts after a big, good week. Meeting new people, asking for help.  Watched these TED videos:

http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html

http://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight.html

And I loved both of these talks. And though that right brain hemisphere experience is beautiful, we sure need the left brain hemisphere to act. It takes both to weave our human experience together.

Attachement without expectation? It is sometimes a shock when the end of the thread releases, but I’m usually glad for the experience. And I’m learning better to let go and trust.

Heaven

Heaven, PositiveAnother thanks to –David Solomon– for curating my work for the show Hell, Heaven in Santa Fe. You can see images of all the works in both shows on his website for –BangGallery–.

Now to get the pieces how to buy tramadol back to Austin in time for E.A.S.T.! Hope that’s less of an adventure than getting them to Santa Fe.

Hell Installed August 20

Here is an image of the “Negative” piece hanging in the gallery at Santa Fe Community College. The ever-amazing curator David Solomon is in the back of the picture hanging the art in the show. I’ll post a portfolio quality image on the site when I get some images back from the show. Sad I will miss the opening Thursday, August 25, but I had to get back to Austin to enjoy my kids’ return to school. I got to meet atlantic pharmacy in long beach several of the artists in the show during my trip to Santa Fe, and they are all interesting.

I hope my New Mexico friends can stop in and see at least one of the installations of Hell & Heaven while its up.

Painting in the Desert August 18

This was my scenic setup in Santa Fe for painting. So nice to be somewhere cooler where working outside was delightful.

I painted Hell first, monochromatically, with pale off-whites and white with charcoal drawn into the surface, and annoyed the gallerist by delivering the work with wet paint. I wasn’t happy about it either, but it took a few days to get the welds repaired. Alas, making art on a schedule is not nearly as fun as studio practice.

The Hell cheap valium uk piece, “Negative”, was composed of the drops of the Heaven, “Positive” piece. Its composition is more of a Rorschach symmetry, it is flipped three-dimensionally, but it is not symmetrical on a single axis. Its gangly and pokey.

“Positive” is a hexagonal dome with single-point axial symmetry. The painting on “Positive” is layered glazes of rich color, pretty and painterly, easy to do while looking at the New Mexico landscape.

Uh Oh August 11

Car wigIn being rather overscheduled and busy, I made some poor assumptions about the availability of Uhaul trailers during UT back to school and Burning Man exodus. No two wheel trailers to rent to pull the pieces on their crate to Santa Fe. And the trucks that I have access to wouldn’t make it out of state for a road trip in August during a heat wave. So I used packing blankets and band straps and drove the pieces on top of my car, and the crate disassembled in the back, to Santa Fe, to paint them there. The paint would atlantic pharmacy have been scratched in transit, and besides, it was 106 in Austin and 78 in Santa Fe. Who wouldn’t rather paint there?

But sadly, a few welds broke in transit, but otherwise, surprisingly no disasters. And to the German “Reliability Engineer” who predicted poor consequences in the Lowe’s parking lot while I added more band straps, it did actually work out fine. Ha.

In Santa Fe, David Solomon introduced me to the fabulous Dan Kadven who rewelded my broken spots so I could begin painting. Yay for sculpture dudes. They are the most versatile guys around.
