A Secret Passage Way

The ongoing Facebook project ‘A Secret Passage Way’ has been published with more than 50 photographs spanning the world and it is quite wonderful ~ if I may say so. All our success!

Late last night we finished posting the digital exhibition of ‘A Secret Passage Way’ on BerkshireFineArts. (BFA) It is there today in first position under articles and will rotate with others in the project space on the home page. It can quickly be accessed under Projects, where it will remain.

Now, the second FaceBook page also named Astrid A. Hiemer will also remain dedicated to the passages project. As I wrote in the introduction to the photo exhibition, several photos still have to be reposted to FB, because they ‘disappeared.’ I realized that fact, while searching my FB-pages and will do so asap. First things, first!
There may be small changes that some of you may ask for. I was not sure of all the countries in which participants live/work.
So, let us all celebrate! It has been a truly enriching four months, while the project grew and we had many email, FB, or personal exchanges and conversations about the project, art and life in general.

Here now the direct link to the BFA article/project:

Why Screw Around?

I paint exclusively with Golden Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. Nothing else gives me the rich, saturated color that I need. I use a 1/2″ Utrecht artificial fiber brush, and I find that Golden Heavy Body cleans up nicely without destroying my brushes. It mixes beautifully to create the vibrant colors I need, and it never clumps or runs. I keep lots of recipes for mixing colors I tend to use often, and I mix batches of those I know I’ll need for a work-in-progress and store them in little glass jars, spritzing them with a little water now and then to keep them workable.

Golden also has great customer service, including a help line that is top notch. They have bailed me out whenever I’ve needed support for technical issues.

Drink My Art

Your Name + My Painting = A Great Mug

Morgan's Mug
Morgan’s Mug by AlphabetArtStudio

The design for these mugs is taken from my “Babylonian Voices” series, in which I imagine the original human language that preceded the confusion of languages at the Tower of Babel. If you don’t see your name (or the name of someone you’d like to honor with a personalized gift), just send me a note and include the name, and I’ll design a mug just for you!

Northampton Paradise City: Where the Wild Things Are

May 26, 27 and 28 we spent in beautiful Northampton Ma at the Paradise City Arts Festival.

The theme of the joint artist show was Where the Wild Things Are.

My cat named fish took center stage.CAT NAMED FISH

The cat is the first of my many charming  animals on the drawing board.

Not wild on the face of it but the Fish named Cat would disagree.

It was at least 100 degrees in the main barn and no A/C. We now know what baked potatoes feel like.

We met wonderful people and my artwork will now grace many more homes.

Thanks to all the artists, promoters, art patrons for a wonderful experience.

A special thanks to my husband Larry for schlepping 1200 pounds of displays and artwork

The following clip is from Stephanie was all set to interview me when she got called to a breaking news story!
