Water-Sipping Dinosaur of Limestone

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , | Posted on 1:45 PM


Hello, Everyone! Today's featured photography is of 'Durdle Dor', a limestone formation that looks like a dinosaur drinking water!  Here's a bit more information about this limestone 'dinosaur':

"Durdle Door (sometimes written Durdle Dor) is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who owns 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate. It is open to the public. The name Durdle is derived from the Old English 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.

The Ron Dawson's children's story Scary Bones meets the Dinosaurs of the Jurassic Coast creates a myth of how Durdle Door came to be, as an 'undiscovered' dinosaur called Durdle Doorus magically transformed into rock." ~ Wikipedia/Durdle_Door


 

This is Durdle Dor/Door the natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England.  Doesn't it look like a dinosaur drinking water?


This beach on the Jurassic Coast looks so beautiful!  Compare the size of the people on the beach to the 'dinosaur'; it is HUGE!  I've viewed the first-three Jurassic Park movies, by Steven Spielberg, several times and I'll tell you my sense of humor kicks in with humorous scenarios about such 'dinosaurs'.

Here's another gorgeous view of the beach and a few appetizers, oops, I mean tourists, viewing the limestone 'dinosaur'.

'Durdle Doorus', the 'dinosaur' has had a lot of visitors it seems, according to the feet-like impressions in the sand.

Here, the 'dinosaur's' head, snout in the water, and two humps on its back, are visible at a distance.  We can imagine that its drinking water to wash down the snack it made of whatever left all those impressions in the sand, UNLESS they all ran away to safety!

In this photo it looks as if the 'dinosaur' has closed its eye (on this side, of course) while it drinks water.  Also, it seems to have a content look on its face, as if the appetizers were, delicious!

Metallic Acrylic Abstract & Other Paintings for Sale

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , , , | Posted on 9:59 PM

Hello! The paintings featured below are works of art hand-painted by me, Michelle Boddie. At the moment, the last three, two paintings are available for purchase in the USA, only. The first two paintings, Metallic Abstract Butterfly and Golden Wine Flower are available, internationally, at Saatchi Art/Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie!

Although the hand-written date on the Metallic Abstract Butterfly is '2014' I actually painted it around 2010. Specifically, I describe this painting as, "A Lumiere abstract butterfly painted in the colors Pearl Magenta, Citrine, Copper, Brass, and Sunset Gold on canvas, with a generous-sized artist's signature in the right-bottom corner."

The golden metallic blossom that I titled Golden Wine Flower was painted around 2010, as well. As you can see, its colors are Lumiere Crimson, Brass, Sunset Gold and Citrine! It, too, has a generous-sized artist's signature in it's bottom-left corner.

The last two paintings are my versions of art (selected for demonstrating the painting of) for art painting classes at the Blu' Bisque. These beautiful paintings were painted in 2014, using Metallic Acrylic and Acrylic on Canvas. If you are a fan of the prettiest pinks and reds featured on this duo of Flower Bud & Blossom and Metallic Hearts Blossoms, or you know someone that is, you're certainly welcome to buy them, together, for yourself or for them!

Paisley-Blossom Abstract: The Class

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 7:41 PM

As mentioned in the previous post, when doing an art class painting demo, at the Blu' Bisque, the selected painting would, often, be a painting created by another artist.  Even though the paintings are great, creative & beautiful imagery, they were not images I thought of to paint.  Consequently, replicating someone else's images can be challenging, yet a lot of fun!  Since the painting, Paisley-Blossom Abstract, featured in the previous post is my version of one of another artist's art, the copyright symbol only denotes that I painted the image on that canvas, not that it is my original creation.  Another benefit of covering a class for another artist is that I met a lot of wonderful people, of all ages, while demonstrating the paintings!


The class that painted this painting was filled with adult family and friends painting together, with me. Simultaneously, a teenage daughter of the hostess celebrated her birthday with a pottery-painting Princess Party, in the Princess Party event room. This was another delightful three-generation event as the grandmother joined in on the painting fun with me/us, too!  The grandmother is a painter too, however she had not painted in years.  Once she began painting on her canvas during this class her love of painting was renewed, and as you can see she is a talented painter!    Each of the adult painters added their own design variations to their paintings, yet each painting is a beautiful work of art!

Party: Painting the Butterfly

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 3:39 PM

Good Day!  Friends, this art class was part of a birthday party!  The birthday girl selected a butterfly painting I'd painted earlier.  We had a lot of fun as they created their versions of the painting!  Of course, we had a break for birthday cake and other goodies! 

As you can see these new, teen artists created unique versions of the butterfly.  The moms and grand-mom joined in on the painting fun, too.  They painted lovely versions of the butterfly painting, as well!  This painting was the grandmother's very first one, and wow, we all agreed, that she did an excellent job!

Hello, Everyone!  I really appreciate enhancing the beauty of furniture and furnishings with paint. I am a fan of painted furniture, so I enjoyed being able to paint the ornate mirror in these images a pretty pink color for the pink-infused Princess Party Room where the delightful Princess Parties happen, at the Blu' Bisque Canvas and Pottery Studio in Atlanta, GA!   Below, you can see what the mirror looked like before and after the application of the pretty pink paint.

Kids enjoy the opportunity to create their own arts and crafts when they're out of school for summer. Here are some of the images from the Blu' Bisque's Summer Camp that I taught during Summer months of 2014 (June 2014 - August 2014), along with images of the Fashion Camp, co-taught with Wintter Moto of PLRG. The kids enjoyed the art and fashion projects and were a delight to work with all Summer long!

Abstract Musical Instruments

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , | Posted on 9:03 PM

Hello, Everyone! Today's images feature an abstract painting of musical instruments, painted by these ladies. The ladies are relatives/sisters that wanted to take a painting class, together. They intended to make it a 'Canvas Over Cocktails' experience, however they forgot to bring their cocktails. So, it became a 'Canvas Over Cocoa' class (which they thoroughly enjoyed) with hot cocoa, marshmallows & cookies we had available for the Creative Kids classes.


You can see the demo painting, that I painted, on a high-boy table in the background of the images. It was a delight to teach these ladies how to re-create this painting, by first showing them how to sketch the instruments onto the canvas with pencils. As you can see for yourself, they did an excellent job of painting this abstract of musical instruments!

'Date Night' - Painting Abstract Roses with The Olivaris

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , , | Posted on 1:54 PM

Hello, Friends!  Today's featured image is of a delightful couple, The Olivaris, who participated in a class that turned out to be for the two of them, exclusively, and their works or art!  I met them during this painting class as I was filling in for another newly wedded artist-instructor.  As you can see we painted an abstract rose.  This is a painting I'd loaded to the Blu' Bisque's calendar (in my Website Designer role, there) earlier in January.  The Olivaris saw it on the calendar and chose to come on that day.  How fortuitous for all of us! 

Although the painting is an abstract rose, we noticed, during class, that it is easy to see other forms in the paintings as well.  Often, that's the beauty of abstract art.  Furthermore, the original painting is black, white and grey.  However, I added browns, reds and gold to my rose, while the Olivaris added the colors you see, below.  Mr. & Mrs. Olivari took this class as a part of their couple's activities which they planned together, so as to add even more joy and delight to their obviously blessed marriage.  I thoroughly enjoyed painting with them,  and listening to them chat with the Blu' Bisque's owner (my sister). 

By the way, both of the Olivaris are talented entrepreneurs, located in the Atlanta, GA area.  She's a talented Baker and he's a talented Web Developer; be sure to check out their websites and let them know where you 'heard' (read) about them!  Aren't their abstract roses, beautiful?  I think they both created beautiful paintings, and a beautiful memory!

Posted by Chae Designs - Michelle 'Chaella' Boddie | Posted in , , , , , , | Posted on 11:13 PM



Hello, Everyone!  Here are a few images of the classes for kids (with their parent(s) that I've taught at the Blu' Bisque, in 2014 & 2015!  These little artists were quite confident with a clear idea of what they wanted to paint on their canvases!  I think the art these little students created is beautiful!  Their parents enjoyed watching their little ones engage so fully in the artistic process, as I always do, too. Stay tuned for news about upcoming art classes with me, Michelle Boddie!
