Oddly Artsy

Greetings from the eccentrically dramatic, highly entertaining quirks of everyday artsy-ho-hum-life, right here in Minneapolis and surrounding suburbs.

Yep.  The art world.

Discovery is part of the journey.



Other artists

often stir our quiet minds with

their untamed imaginations!

which instinctively stimulates our own inventive process.

Never discard any notion of use!

It's all good.


CONSTANTLY BEING imaginatively-

So find those rusty corners within your own circle of the salvage trade, or discarded scrap.

They seem to be vogue these days.

When a place is called, City Salvage, don't be fooled into thinking garbage, or debris only.

Why stop with one eye bulging incredible, and artsy oddity when
Doug Padilla's Studio is waiting too?

Our world is/can/should/is always a magical place.

Waiting for us.

Artist-block syndrome got you down- hear what Dougie Padilla has to say.
 Padilla speaks about walking between two worlds and We can change the world here.

Thanks for stopping by, just keep your brain cells burning and enjoy every second along your journey.

Art sure can be odd but I like that all your odd stuff is cheerful. Not all art is so uplifting.

Fantastic post Karen, super links. I have nothing but admiration for the artistic mind.. Oh and if I'm honest a wee bit of envy :)


My kids loved the Cat in the Hat...this made me giggle. But I must add that EVERYONE needs a day served with a cherry on top!!!!!
