Art Slideshows no longer supported

Please pardon that I am just now getting around to alerting all those who click to view my Art Slideshows on this blog and on others: slide.com is no more. This grumps me up considerably and sends me into a snit of miffdom however,  I ‘ve yet to locate another option that’s as easy to set up and as fun to view (psychedelic prisms were tres cool!)

It’s too late for my past projects (slideshows) but any ideas you may have for a new art display option will be heartily appreciated.

Art On, everyone!

Why girls shouldn’t smoke

Her Bad Habit, a detail from a drawing by Jude Cowell 2010+; subtitle: Sanpuku Eyes.

btw: smoking’s ill effects mess up guys, too. But you knew that.

If you’re of a 17+ persuasion you may wish to check out my illustration Ecology Woman. Or not. As you wish.

Blogging from Raleigh NC!

Here am I gone awol yet blogging at you from Raleigh during a break from this Spring’s family spree on a lovely day in May. Cool breezes are blowing and thunderstorms may lie ahead later today but for now the weather is simply scrumptious, y’all!

But fast typing is a must since I shall soon be whisked away for a Mother’s Day massage at Epona & Oak: ‘A Fashioning of Style & Wellness’…well, you know I can hardly wait for that!

Then tomorrow we plan a browse of the new galleries at the North Carolina Art Museum which you can virtually tour on their website where you’ll find links to flickr slideshows and photos of some groovy new art. You may wish to click to view their new and tranquil reflecting pools, too.

Plus, this flower lover hears that the new gardens at the museum are something to see which could mean botanical drawing inspiration for moi.

Therefore, there’s not much politickin’ or astrologizin’ for me this weekend and I hope that anyone reading this vacation post has a great time wherever she or he may browse!

That’s:

Epona & Oak 329 Blake Street Raleigh NC @ 919.828.7500 if you should find yourself in the neighborhood, or visit Epona and Oak if you wish!

Is ‘Gertrude’s Garter’ considered Cosmo-Erotic Art?

Detail from a pencil drawing by Jude Cowell, ‘Gertrude’s Garter’.

In summer 2005, I created an Art Gallery blog called Cosmic Persona Designs in order to showcase my drawings of adult-themed ‘fanciful figure studies’ which have recently been dubbed ‘Cosmo-Erotic Art’ for their eroticism-with-cosmic leanings.

Yet I cannot prevent my previous art training in Fashion Illustration, Layout, and Design from peeking through in most images as well as their providing a hat-tip to my interest in Astrology studies.

Yet you don’t have to be interested in Astrology to view them! Especially since we’re all in the cosmos together although some of us seem to forget that on a regular basis.

Art can civilize the savage beast, don’t you think?

So if you’re a mature viewer (17+) this is your cordial invitation to see the full portrait of ‘Gertrude’s Garter’ as part of a sassy and spinning Boudoir Blossoms Art Cube that you may freely share around if you wish!

Also you may desire to snag yourself a leisurely browse in my fancy Zazzle Art Shop of art-designed goodies…and rate or leave a comment, if you may.

Did you plop here looking for Political Astrology?

Well, I’ve been quite busy of late posting @ Stars Over Washington if you’re interested…today’s entry is on Senator Bernie Sanders’ current amendment to Audit the Fed. jc

A new Chiffonery Art addition!

Here’s a brief heads-up for Art’s sake today: Dance Mask of Kifwebe is now under the Chiffonery Art alphabetized listings in this blog’s sidebar column of Pages, or simply click the link I just gave you.

Now I know you’re tempted to think that a ‘Dance Mask’ can have little if anything to do with erotic art (‘Chiffonery Art’ as I call it) and normally I’d agree with you wholeheartedly. Yet Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so it behooved me to add a new Chiffonery Art image to the Pages list for the romantically inclined among us. Therefore, the image is now in place for viewing, if you’re 17+ years old.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

‘Flowers of India’ drawing by Jude Cowell, imported from my Secret Moon Art collection and inspired by my love of nature and by incense from India.

New! A Dreamyfish Art Calendar 2010 is ready for you @ my Zazzle Art Shop if you should need one with 12 botanical fish drawings to mark your months as they whiz by.

Art Blog: The Illustrated Garden

Oh, this is brilliant!

Alabama artist and gardener Val Webb’s studio blog The Illustrated Garden displays her illustrations of plants, flowers, and visitors to her beautiful southern garden.

Butterflies show up for refreshing nectar feasts and are immortalized in portraitures of perfection – and with their bio details included, the better to identify them with.

Val gives us Botanical Drawings and Paintings at their finest, so do check out The Illustrated Garden when you may, but hurry – it’s canning time in southern Alabama and there’s one last cantaloupe photo to be viewed!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
