NBM Trade Show

Fine Art Printing 

 The NBM Trade Show

 

[leadplayer_vid id=”51EC4EE801F0E”]

I usually hate trade shows. But I do go to two every year. One show sells art, and this show sells fine art printing materials and supplies. So I’ve decided to share the event with you. We’re in the Long Beach Convention Center and it’s new and interesting. Walk the aisles and see what the Fine Art Printing industry has to offer. There’s some amazing printers, and color art coming off those printers. Enjoy.

 

TRADE SHOW TODAY

Yes it’s about art…fine art printing.
Interesting art ahead.
Long Beach California.
The usual traffic, it’s a 3 hour drive…and we left at 6 AM

" The Queen Mary " Long Beach

Trade Show in Long Beach CA.

We’ve arrived at The Long Beach Convention Center and right down the walk is the Queen Mary.
Here we go down to the exhibition hall. ­­­­­
The NBM Show.
It’s where they show and sell digital printing equipment and supplies
We’ll look around at printers and how they do some pretty exciting and fun things.
This show is where I get my supplies and new products to put my painting on. ­­

PRINTERS I’D LIKE TO OWN.

This is a tee shirt printer. It goes around and completes 6 teeshirts in one cycle. It takes up 9 feet square and I don’t think it will fit into my 11×14  studio. Oh…and they wrap cars and motorcycles with printed vinyl.

Most of all, this show is fun, inspiring and they actually give out samples.  We always leave with some tee shirts, and vinyl printed art posters.
And we do actually buy new items to print with my paintings. 5 hours of all these people, all this stuff and I want outta here. Oh and I’m so hungry. I hate the cold hotdogs at the show…so let’s go to a really fine restaurant near our hotel

Tutto FamigliaMEALTIME

We’re now in Lake Forest CA and ready to enjoy a much earned fine dinner.
I always use Yelp to find restaurants, and I’ve never once been disappointed.
Here’s the one I’ve chosen. “Tutto Famiglia” Italian is some of our favorites.
I can tell you that this is an Italian family restaurant, father chef, daughter great waitress.  12 tables and the food is outstanding.
We started with recommendations from one of the Yelpers. Scampi Alla Retsina, and great garlic bread.
I had an incredible salad, and Al had their Minestrone. Fresh and hearty. Then it was Spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs for Al, and I had the award winning… Linguini Frutti Di Mare. THE BEST.
And we couldn’t leave without a dessert. The Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake. You can see what we left of this fine meal.

So there you have it. A trade show for fine art printing products and a meal fit for a king. Not a bad day.
We ordered some great new products for the fall, so keep watching.
And I end with the sample bumper sticker that I selected.
“Take my advice – I’m not using it”  And my advice for you  is…

Embellish Demo 2

DIGITAL PAINTING

How to Hand Embellish a Giclee Print

VIDEO 1- WATCH NOW
[leadplayer_vid id=”51C7832FDE0AC”]

VIDEO 2-WATCH DEMO  

Last week on the Art Blog, I demonstrated “A Portrait Drawing
In that demo I said “After the drawing is completed and signed, it is printed on canvas (giclee print) and then hand embellished.”

Embellishment Process

Today I’m sharing my video  “How to hand embellish a digital painting, printed on canvas.”

Once that painting or drawing is printed on the canvas and stretched, I then add texture to the piece.

This turns the giclee print into an original digital painting or as I refer to it  “a digital original.”

Texture is added to the canvas surface with acrylic gel medium.

Painting Medium

Acrylic Gloss Medium – Utrecht

My process is to add the acrylic gel medium using both paintbrush and painting knife. At times, my hand spends more time on the canvas surface with the acrylic medium,  than either brush or knife. (This is the part that truly turns this piece into an original painting.)

I also add acrylic paint  into areas on the canvas to strengthen or compliment the color.

There are never two pieces that are embellished the same.

Therefore each time the image is printed and hand embellished it becomes an original painting.

Each piece is signed in the computer and then again hand signed on the backside of the canvas.

Digital Painting vs Traditional Painting

My process in either digital or traditional painting is to begin the piece with a hand drawing that I draw directly from the model.

The model can be sitting in front of me, or I use photos that I have taken of the model or subject.

I always begin each piece with a drawing. Why? Because it helps me loosen up and become familiar with my subject.

The point that I am stressing, is that my process of using a digital art studio (Corel Painter 11 and 12) is no different than my process of traditional painting.

Corel Painter 12

Corel Painter 12

I do not use any auto painting digital processes. No the computer does not paint for me.

I do it all by hand and the benefit is…I’m not troubled with paint fumes, air circulation problems, paint rags and toxic materials.

How fortunate I am to be skilled at today’s incredible advanced methods of painting.  😎

The Actual Painting Process

Corel Painter - desktop

My Corel Painter 12  “Digital Painting Studio”

I choose brushes and brush sizes that closely resemble those that I traditionally use to paint.

Flat bristle brushes are my preference. I then select oil paints and colors.

Next I choose how opaque I want those pigments. This option is just like adding turpentine or painting medium to the paint as I mix my paint colors.

There you have it. Why I prefer today’s exciting digital painting process. Have you tried it?

Festival History

Festival of the Arts

Festival of the Arts - History

Since the first painting was created here in 1878, the exquisite natural beauty of Laguna Beach has been a magnet for artists. Artists flourished in the small village, supporting themselves through sales to tourists who flocked to the beach for vacation. By the early 1900s, the village had gained a reputation as an art colony, and in 1918, with the entire population numbering only 300 residents, the community established the Laguna Art Association to promote and support the fine arts.

Art Review – Phoenix Art Museum “Paper”

Art Review

Phoenix Art Museum – “Paper” 

“An art exhibit worth exploring”

 

Art Review by Jackie Jacobson

The Phoenix Art Museum’s Art exhibit

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPdqMX92S5M&version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0]
The museum took an artist’s drawing material and made it the theme of an art exhibit.

 

Drawing - Mary Cassatt 

 

 

The material PAPER.

  • Included in the show 
  • Works of art drawn, printed, or painted on paper 
  • Paper as the subject of the artwork 
  • Used as the material for three dimensional work such as paper dresses to metal representations 

 

 

And here’s the piece of art that attracted me to this show for today’s art review.

Art Review - Derain - Still Life
Art Review : André Derain, Still Life, 1933.
Gouache (also known as opaque watercolor)
on newspaper mounted on canvas. 24½” x 33¾”.
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Donald D. Harrington.

 

Newsprint for drawing 

Most drawing instructors assign newsprint pads of paper as the support paper for quick sketches from the live model.

I assign NEWSPAPERS such as the classified section as an incredible surface for drawings.

And that makes it pretty cheap for a drawing material. But we better start saving them before Newspapers disappear from our planet.

Derain Painting in the Art Exhibit

Painting - Derain - Still Life

In this painting by Derain, note that the the headlines and text are still visible in the work. It definitely adds to the interest of the   piece. It was probably painted as a quick study and then mounted on canvas to preserve it

André Derain, French (1880-1954), was a contemporary and friend of Picasso and Matisse, and one of the artists of the Fauvist movement. He might never have enjoyed the success he did as an artist if it hadn’t been for Matisse convincing Derain’s parents to allow him to abandon his studies in engineering and pursue art. This piece, from 1933, is a gouache (also known as opaque watercolor) on newspaper, the headlines and text of which are still visible in the work.

The Phoenix Art Museum is the Southwest United States’ largest art museum for visual art. It’s Located in Phoenix, Arizona, the museum is 285,000-square-foot. It’s a mere 4 hour drive from here in The Palm Springs area and will definitely be on my schedule of short trips this summer.

Art exhibit is in the Steele Gallery and runs from May 26 – September 23, 2012. Join me in Phoenix AZ and we’ll explore this fine art exhibit together. I’ll let you know the date of my trip.

Come back weekly for an art review of a current museum show, gallery show, or specific artist. I will be your art critic.”

Art Tour – Abstract Art

Art Tour • Abstract Art?

Learn How to Understand It…

As you know, I’m thought of as a photo-realist artist. 

But there is really much more to my artwork. 

I love to explore in many different styles.

So today’s art tour is a brief history of art and it’s many different styles. 

And finally, to an understanding of abstract art. 

After you’ve watched the abstract art video… look below.

How I Explored Abstract Art

Abstract Art - Self Portrait

Jackie Jacobson • Self Portrait

“I was not exploring inner turmoil or anxiety. I was exploring Color Fields and action painting.”

What Process Did I Use?

SEE IT HERE…WATCH MY VIDEO NOW!

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSI_Rpv0hC0&version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0]
Abstract Art Painting I worked digitally, with Corel Painter , and explored every brush in my toolbox. I threw, dropped, splashed and dragged the paint and the brush. Talk about feeling free. And I kept changing colors. NO THINKING…just painting.

  • I played
  • made marks
  • moved fast
  • grabbed a new brush
  • scraped with a palette knife
  • used calligraphy
  • added numbers
  • added letters
  • expressed the music’s rhythm
  • Don’t be surprised…Upbeat Frank Sinatra and his “My Kinda Town Chicago“was in the background.
  • OK …I’m from Chicago and my history moved the brushes and paint.
  • Every color was chosen randomly, again with no thought.
  • One hour per painting.
  • No thought about outcome.
  • No thought of a product.
  • Just Rhythm
  • Just Color
  • Just Movement
  • Just Fun

At the end of the hour, my energy was spent…Time for a Break.

Then back to the studio … and on to another painting. Each abstract art painting was a different shape. The Shape really changed the dynamics of each painting.

Self Portrait  

Here’s the fun part.

  1. I chose an Abstract Art painting for my background.
  2. Loaded it into Corel Painter
  3. Hand Mirror in Left Hand
  4. Line Drawing Brush or Pen in Right Hand
  5. Paint Colors to my right
  6. I Drew and Painted what I saw in the mirror
  7. Voila…a Self Portrait.
  8. Drawing/Painting  Time – 40 minutes.
I love this project.  And I think the best part is that it’s all abstract art. The ground, the image. Color Fields on Paper. Action Painting. You can also do this project with traditional tools and art mediums.
Would you  consider trying this project? Let’s talk about it in the comments.

Golf History in Palm Springs

Located in downtown Palm Springs, O’Donnell is the oldest course in the Coachella Valley.
O’ Donnell Golf Club was built by Thomas A. O’Donnell, an oilman who came to Palm Springs in the mid-1920s.
O’Donnell uniquely combines challenging golf with a casual, relaxing atmosphere in the heart of downtown Palm Springs
Beautiful vistas and impeccable conditions make this a truly fun course to play.

New Art from the Studio

With all of the focus on Palm Spring sports, I decided it was time to do a little sports painting.

  • Background painting first • plaid fabric
  • I had much fun painting the golf ball next
  • Copied the golf ball.
  • Then I digitally pasted it onto the plaid background
  • Threw in (actually painted in) some colorful tees
  • Bottomline…Art…Balls and Tees on Plaid

Tennis is also an important sport here in the valley. I did the same concept with the tennis ball.

  • Background painting first • strings from a tennis racket
  • Tennis ball painted on top of the strings

MY REVIEW: ***** IT’S A WONDERFUL FILM – Get to know the Art & the Artists

David Hockney - Pop Art

The place was a 10-square block area in Manhattan where Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, David Hockney,
Jonas Mekas and other artists lived, worked and displayed their wares in galleries.
The time was the 1960s. Peter Rosen produced and directed the 80-minute film.

“I wanted to make a film about that extraordinary community of artists for years,
but I couldn’t figure out how to do it,” says the New York-based nonfiction filmmaker.
“It would have been boring to go from one artist to another in a linear fashion.”

Enter the eureka factor.
In 1999, Rosen suddenly had an idea for building the story around Henry Geldzahler,
who was the curator of contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in Manhattan during that period.

Who Gets to Call It Art? is a blend of archival stills and TV news footage,
including memorabilia harvested from Geldzahler’s archives at Yale’s rare book library,
and dozens of interviews filmed with artists, critics and journalists he knew.

The short list includes Mark Di Suvero, David Hockney, Robert Rauschenberg,
Larry Poons, James Rosenquist, Francesco Clemente, John Chamberlain, Jonas Mekas,
Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly, among others.

About Bamboo…

Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family.

Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In a single day, a bamboo plant can grow an average of up to 23.6 inches, and certain species have been measured to grow as much as 47.6 inches in one 24-hour period. However, bamboo is not a type of wood, but a type of grass. It grows most abundantly in the East and Southeast Asian regions of the world, but it can also be found in Northern Australia, India, sub-Saharan Africa and the tropical regions of the Americas.

Aside from being used as building material for many centuries bamboo has also had major cultural significance in countries like China, where bamboo is a symbol of longevity. Japan’s Shinto religion makes use of bamboo as a sacred object. Bamboo forests often surround Shinto shrines and are believed to serve as barriers against evil spirits. Buddhist temples often have bamboo groves, as they create a peaceful and meditative setting.

Why is it called Lucky Bamboo

Along with its ease of growth, Lucky Bamboo has long been associated with the Eastern practice of Feng Shui – or the bringing of natural elements of water, fire, earth, wood and metal into balance within the environment. Lucky Bamboo is believed to be an ideal example of the thriving wood and water element, with the addition of a red ribbon sometimes tied around the stalks – which is believed to “fire” the positive flow of energy or chi in the room.

The number of stalks also has meaning : three stalks for happiness; five stalks for wealth; six stalks for health. Four stalks, however, are always avoided since the word “four” in Chinese sounds too similar to the Chinese word for “death”!

Growth and Harvesting

Bamboo has become a popular eco-friendly alternative to using hardwood as building material. Because of its rapid growth and short life-cycle, bamboo is one of the most renewable natural resources in the world, and it can be harvested on a regular basis without causing significant damage to its surrounding ecosystem.

Unlike hardwoods, bamboo plants achieve their full height and girth in just one growing season, which lasts between three and four months.

Uses

Bamboo has a wide variety of uses. From construction to cooking, it has been a part of human culture and consumption for centuries. Another very common use for bamboo today is as a decorative tool. Small bamboo plants are becoming very popular in western interior design, and Asian cultures have been using it to decorate rooms and altars for centuries.

    My father did all the drawing that I needed. I loved color, but could not draw.

    Bottom line Jackie Jacobson learned how to see and now can draw. Read about it here.

    What’s the first Question People Ask?

    …after they see my paintings.

    “Do you teach drawing or painting?”

    I taught figurative drawing and painting for years.

    I also taught sessions for people who believed they could not draw. Their belief… their sister was the one with the talent!

    I proved them wrong every time.

    I also teach drawing classes here at the online Studios of Artist Jackie Jacobson.

How is the Tile Art Made?

Dye sublimation is the process used to decorate the ceramic coaster, using The Tile Master™ heat press. Epson Inkjet printers and sublimation inks print the transfers used to sublimate the tile coasters with unique artwork by Jackie Jacobson.

The one absolute requirement of this process is that the tiles must have a polymer coating on them. When a tile is decorated using the sublimation process the image is transferred into the polymer coating and actually becomes a part of it.

The tile art coasters are manufactured in the Jackie Jacobson Studios in the Palm Springs area. Stop by the studios for a tour of the tile art production.
