Look for them tonight!

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

The update for pfattmarketplace will be this evening, around midnight, Pacific time.  Since I gave you a sneak peek a couple of days ago, here is the full image of what I will offer – watercolor cottages, each with a tiny bird on the roof.  These are really small little homes  – 1 1/2 inches to 2 3/4 inches tall,  and sculpted from air dry clay.  Join all of us tonight as we offer you lots and lots of eye candy!  Yes!

Whew !!!!!!!!

It is nearly showtime around here, and I have the dining room to prove it!  Who eats in the dining room when you have tray tables?  Who uses the kitchen table when there is creativity going on?  These are burning issues, aren’t they?  haha!

As you can see, things are rolling along.  In less than two weeks, I have a big fall show at the Raceway complex in Mechanicsville, VA, just outside Richmond.  There will be hundreds of exhibitors, so if you are in the area, come on out.  Show hours are as follows:

Friday, November 6     10 am – 9 pm

Saturday, November 7     10 am – 6 pm

Sunday, November 8     11 am – 5 pm

Loads of fun, lots to see, great food – how CAN you miss this!

Hope to see you there!

Here’s a look at what I will be taking!

It’s my son’s MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Attention everyone!  The Time Traveler’s Wife opens everywhere tomorrow!  Yahoo!  Based upon the wonderful best-seller, the film stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, AND it will be a biggy in my house because my son, Matthew, is one of the editors!!!!!!!!    Rounds of applause, please!  It was filmed in Toronto, so that meant that Matthew spent a few months last year in Canada.  Tough duty, huh?!  Then, after the shoot, they all  returned to Los Angeles, where they worked for months to get it juuusssstttt right.  When you edit, you are pulling all of the strands together —  following the outline so that you know which scenes to use (there is always a lot more shot than actually used),  putting in additional dialogue which might have to be re-recorded, putting in the musical score, putting in special effects, etc. etc. etc.  That’s what my son does, and he loves it.  Currently, if you are a reader of my blog, you know that he has been working on Jonah Hex.  I blogged about that a short while back and put up the poster for that movie, due out next year.

OK – so here’s the deal!  The first weekend is the big one for numbers on any film, so I want all of you to go to see it!  Then, write me and share your thoughts!  And, here’s a link to the official website for the film: The Time Traveler’s Wife .

*****At the end of the film, when the credits roll, look for my son.  It will be something like this:  Additional Editor…………………..Matt Diezel   !  That’s my boy!  See you all at the movies!  Enjoy!

Are you an optimist?

Monday, June 15th, 2009

During my lifetime,  I have seen myself pretty much as the eternal optimist – I try to look on the bright side of things, believing that it doesn’t cost you anything more to be optimistic, and indeed, it can cost you physically and emotionally to be otherwise.  That’s why I was so interested in this article I found online about optimism.  Take a look!  It is well worth the read!  Enjoy!  And, have a terrific day!  I know I will!

Art with a Heart

Take a look at the face of this beautiful little girl.  She has been through so much in the first three years of her life.  Her name is Alexis, and for the next several days, through June 12, you can help her, and other children with cancer, by bidding on items which artists from around the country have donated.  Here’s the link to read more about this child.  Her story is crushing reality, but it is ultimately uplifting, because she continues to smile and live each day to the fullest – a reminder for all of us.  If you would like to make a monetary donation, there is an email address to facilitate that as well.  Here’s the link to the Country Folk Art blog, and here’s Alexis!

Boo! Eek! Ooohhh!

It’s spooky, it’s scary, it’s downright thrilling!  These are my Halloween pieces which will be up for auction at The LEAP Foundation’s fundraiser this Saturday in Los Angeles at the House of Blues.  My past several posts have been about the foundation, its efforts, and the fundraiser, so check back through and find out all about this wonderful organization and its good works.  If you are in the Los Angeles area, you know what you can do – you can ATTEND!  If you are not in Los Angeles, you can DONATE!  Yeah!
