A little good news — about creativity

http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/this-simple-word-test-reveals-how-creative-you-are/ I'm not sure why, but this mental exercise sounds familiar. As a person who has often been accused of being too literate because of my love of semantics, this is a game I've often played with myself... well, various versions of it. Care to see if you are really creative? Take the test: https://www.datcreativity.com/about

A little good news — Art is everywhere to the curious eye

http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/artist-creates-stunning-animal-art-from-seashells-anna-chan/ I have to admit that my greatest moments of bliss are walking in beaches and picking up shells. I can spend hours getting in lost in my imagination while looking at sea shells, sea glass, seaweeds, and whatever small treasures the ride leaves on the sand. I usually imagine these things becoming decorations for … Continue reading A little good news — Art is everywhere to the curious eye

A little good news — Reconciliation with a contemporary twist

http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/native-american-tribe-in-maine-gets-back-sacred-island/ There are some unceded lands all over the world. If some of these lands are up for sale by private landowners, isn't it our responsibility to try and buy them back for the indigenous peoples of our countries? Surely if 130 acres can go for $500k in Maine USA, then we can start raising … Continue reading A little good news — Reconciliation with a contemporary twist

A little good news — now that gives me an idea for the kids I teach

http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/st-louis-first-grader-creates-foundation-for-homeless/ I had a conversation with one of my more seasoned colleagues the other day about what age little ones get inspired at... she gave me a load of examples about her garde one kids... I'd been thinking about it ever since! Then this amazing story comes along!!! I've decided to add some little inspiration … Continue reading A little good news — now that gives me an idea for the kids I teach

A little good news… about environmentally cool art

This is cool Dir several reasons... one, the possibility of experimenting with a different paint colour on canvases, and there's more! The possibilities for architecture that contributes to the reduction of global warming!!! http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/purdue-university-indiana-whitest-paint-for-buildings/ Ok, maybe it's the art and science geek in me, but this is really, really cool!!! (The pun might be intended😏)

Natural Architecture – For Humanity

Upturned roots, crumbling rocks, tossed-around branches... all combine into fantastic structures. I would love to see a city built from such an inspiration. Massive edifices twisting and intertwining; made of steel, concrete, and glass. Giant sustainable living spaces, fled with living plants, greenhouses, and walkways for people to live healthy lives. No more stress-inducing strait … Continue reading Natural Architecture – For Humanity

My Ongoing Creative Conundrum

Ok, daydreaming is now a good thing. CHECK 👍 Thank you, Abraham-Hicks! I've been a guilty master of this practice all my life and I won't feel guilty about it anymore! Well, that's my intention. Onto the next overthought... The moment I started accepting this freedom, I started rethinking what I want to do creatively... … Continue reading My Ongoing Creative Conundrum

“Aesthetic Explorations Through Arts & Design”

I'm continuing to think out loud here... please feel free to chime in... As you know, I've been considering the branding of my artwork and other creative projects. Arts MPerron doesn't feel like it covers my past creative explorations, much less all the new projects I've got underway. MPerron Creations feels like it encompasses the … Continue reading “Aesthetic Explorations Through Arts & Design”

Distorted Ozs #13 – Eat Your Heart Out

While barely recognizable as a robot, I chose to continue some features I've done earlier. Such as the open chest cavity and the visible heart. Only this time, the heart seems to be floating just out of reach of the teeth. The line from which it hangs is over the sharp teeth, not behind it. … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #13 – Eat Your Heart Out

Distorted Ozs #12 – A Little Heart

I came across this peculiar robot drawing. It had no face, no hat, and no obvious mobility. Even if all its mechanics were in the rib cage, there's little mechanical evidence that it could move its arms and legs. The joints don't seem right. Maybe it's magic. If it's magic, it could be a Tin … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #12 – A Little Heart
