Art Journaling Day 1

20130723-214500.jpg
Art journaling is amazing! It allow you to be creative without any limitations. Expressing yourself and letting your self be free is very soothing.

I love putting in my headphones listening to some music and just zone out. I feel like this is when I make my most precious art pieces. Because there is no thinking Involved. I just draw or paint or create what I feel.

Wether it be from the feel of the music or the emotion of a bad day. Maybe even a joyful event.

They say spending time art journaling at least once a day for 10 minutes helps your skills as an artist increase.

The greatest thing I find about art journaling is that you don’t have to be a good drawer. Just as long as you have an imagination you can art journal. There are no mistakes. There are no bad art journals. Because its not met for other people. It’s met for you to express yourself and release some creative energies and emotions.

So I definitely encourage you to give it a shot! And stay tuned for more art journaling :)

If you have questions about art journaling or want some ideas just emails me at colemaninkartworks@gmail.com

Summertime Fun

20130723-125405.jpg

Summertime is the time of vacations, sunbathing, beach trips, pool fun, and no school! Summer is one of the most enjoyed seasons, filled with all sorts I activities.

What are you doing for the summer? Summer memories are some of the fondest memories we have. Spending time with family is definitely one of my favorites. Having that time away from home and the daily grind. Getting away an going on an adventure. Seeing new places and experiencing new things, maybe even trying new foods!

No matter what the summer brings, may the weather be beautiful and the days last. For when summer ends we will all miss it.

Long Time No Talk!

It has been so long since I last posted. I feel as though I have abandoned my followers and possibly lost them. I have been so busy lately I haven’t been doing to much artwork, and if I have it has only been simple doodles.

Two weeks ago I got married to an amazing man named Kenney. He is the love of my life. So planning a wedding has taken up a lot of my time as well. Hopefully I will be able to put up some more artwork as well assist more frequently.

Again I am sorry for my absence. Thank you so much for those of you who have stood by me with patience.

Love, Brittany

Doodles Doodles and More Doodles!

One of the things I love to do is doodles. To most people they aren’t doodles, but for me this is doodling. Just drawing whatever comes to mind, not caring about the outcome, or overlapping of other doodles. Just having fun and letting my imagination run wild. Everyone once in awhile I go into a spurt of wanting to work with just one medium. Right now it happens to be the messy charcoal! I am in love with it’s texture, and depth. I like to use a splash of color, but only one. It makes the black and white really pop, and draws your eye into it! Hope you all have a blessed, and creative day!!!

 

Love Britt!

ALS Awareness

I would like to take the time to share a post on ALS Awareness. My grandfather recently passed away from ALS, it is a devastating disease, and one that has to be taken seriously,  along with any other disease or cancer.  Please take the time to read a little about what it is, and then go to http://www.alsphiladelphia.org/page.aspx?pid=983 and see what you can do to help support, and come up with a cure, to stop ALS from taking another loved one.

 

In Loving Memory

Lou Gehrig first brought national and international attention to the disease in 1939 when he abruptly retired from baseball after being diagnosed with ALS. Most commonly, the disease strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, and as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease at any given time. ALS has cut short the lives of other such notable and courageous individuals as Hall of Fame pitcher Jim “Catfish” Hunter, Senator Jacob Javits, actors Michael Zaslow and David Niven, creator of Sesame Street Jon Stone, television producer Scott Brazil , boxing champion Ezzard Charles, NBA Hall of Fame basketball player George Yardley, pro football player Glenn Montgomery, golfer Jeff Julian, golf caddie Bruce Edwards, British soccer player Jimmy Johnstone, musician Lead Belly (Huddie Ledbetter), photographer Eddie Adams, entertainer Dennis Day, jazz musician Charles Mingus, composer Dimitri Shostakovich and U.S. Army General Maxwell Taylor.

ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that usually attacks both upper and lower motor neurons and causes degeneration throughout the brain and spinal cord. A common first symptom is a painless weakness in a hand, foot, arm or leg, which occurs in more than half of all cases. Other early symptoms include speech, swallowing or walking difficulty.

The biological mechanisms that cause ALS are only partially understood. The only known cause of ALS is a mutation of a specific gene: the SOD1 gene. This mutation is believed to make a defective protein that is toxic to motor nerve cells. The SOD1 mutation, however, accounts for only 1 or 2 percent of ALS cases, or 20 percent of the familial (inherited) cases.

Familial ALS represents between five to 10 percent of all cases. The rest arise spontaneously and mysteriously, making seemingly random attacks on previously healthy adults. ALS can strike anyone, anytime.

Physicians have limited choices for treating ALS, and the options that do exist have come into use within the last 10 years. Studies suggest that patients’ length of survival and quality of life are enhanced by night-time breathing assistance early in the course of the disease and by aggressive application of alternate feeding options to assure good nutrition once swallowing becomes difficult. At this time, Riluzole® is the only drug that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of ALS. In clinical trials, Riluzole® has shown a slight benefit in modestly increasing survival time.

Stem cell and gene therapy are promising areas of research. In a variety of studies, ALS mouse models are being used to develop treatments that may someday lead to similar human clinical trials. Gene therapy is one field of research where The ALS Association is concentrating support for more study.

More significant advances of research into ALS has occurred in the last decade than all of the time since Charcot identified the disease. Advances in technology and the genetic revolution are aiding researchers in unlocking the ALS mystery. As more scientists focus on this perplexing disease, the outlook for new understanding brightens each day.
