If I May Introduce Myself

Hello my fellow creatives!! I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Krystin Goodsell, and I am a mixed media visual artist. I have been asked to stand at the helm of Outsider Art In A Box as Rhonda is embarking on a great big international leap!




I have been a contributing artist to OAIAB since it's conception, and I can only hope to do it as much creative justice as Rhonda did. I have some pretty remarkable shoes to fill.




You may view samples of my work here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Krystin-Goodsell/8375502345?sk=photos#!/video/video.php?v=495221565648&oid=8375502345&comments




Rhonda, may Mexico embrace you and your art, and know that we will think of you often! Stay in touch!




So Long......Farewell

Good Beautiful Morning Creatives;
As u see from the title of this post, i am writing to say my farewells as i put Outsider Art In A Box to rest.. its been such a creative learning doing this public art project and i have met so many people that have participated as artists or artist consumers and I thank each and every one of u!!!

None of this could have been done without your input and support..Yes i am moving on but will continue to create locally and away.Above are pics of a workshop that was gifted to me and yes my fave facilitator Empty Sky,this particular workshop really inspired me on many different levels.

I still can be contacted at alteredanything at shaw dot ca i still have loose ends to tie up for Outsider. I have no regrets in doing Outsider at the time i felt it was something that needed to be done and now the time has passed.The other pic is a very interesting story and i am following some of my dreams in the next year take a look and hear their story.

I share also with sadness that Ruby Dogs Art House here in Vancouver will be closing its door the end of June 2008.its a great loss to the creative community.
There are great sales on check it out the address is on the right hand side of blog

So friends i must sign off as there are many things that i must do in moving on..

The Shape of an Artist......................

Happy Solstice;
Ok it will be tomorrow..........Can u believe it time continues to speed along and i am trying to move with it. As we spring i wanted to blog about my direction and my shape as an artist. The first pic is a picture of yours truly,yep its me Rhonda the mover and shaker behind Outsider Art In A Box now i am not one for posting my picture as like others i don't enjoy having my pic taken but felt that at times when u read blogs its like reading someones ghost stories,u see lots of words but no connection to who is writing them.

The title of this entry is fitting cause i question myself on a regular basis as to what does shape me as an artist. Well the second pic is two books i just finished recently one the Book of Negroes was gifted to me at xmas and the other is a library book,both have impacted me in huge ways and naturally more questions i am left with to reflect on.

The Book of Negroes has fueled me in working more in terms of myself as a black womin and to incorporate that into my creativity . Its interesting if one pays attention to ideas that are asking for our attention in our creative expression and
my heritage continues to nudge me until its acknowledged.

Supplies a book by Julia Cameron author of Artists Way truly validated my experiences in the Artist Community at large here in Vancouver BC. I encourage u artists to pick up this book remain open and let the words flow.I understand in many ways why i chose to remain a solo artist. I am beginning to evaluate and challenge my creative process which is a good thing it keeps work fresh.

What changes are u making in your creative process??

Are u a solo artist or more of a group artist?

What have u learned about yourself as an artist in the last year?

Well Creatives heres to springing!!!

Happy Creative Day..

Good Morrow Creatives;
I had good intentions of writing here in blog land and it kept getting put off so here i am...The above pics are the last of my collage class with empty sky and that quality time has been missed,i feel at a loss as it kept me focused on the creativity at hand.

Taking a course is a great way to experiment,challenge and incorporate diverse approaches into ones artful expression.I must say i am looking at pushing some limits in my own art.

The first pic is a book we created the book was blank so i played with bees wax as texture,i love the color and the central theme of balance & peace. The remaining pics are empty sky facilitating our last class.I will be around a bit more the rest of month so check in..

Have a creative day ,Try it you will like it

Salutations;
Its Black History Month!!! this post is the past two weeks of my night class...it continues to be a learning curve and a nice balance from my academic course. Collage is an interesting medium and Empty Sky is an awesome facilitator with loads of experience..

Lots going on here at Outsider central, over the next few months i will update you all. The above pics give a bit of insight into my collage journey and i thought it was fitting to create a piece for my celebration and acknowledgment of Black History. The other pics are collage creations on a time limit the whole idea is not to over think but just do.

The last pic is a focused student,my friend Cindy. I raved so much about the class that Cindy signed up in the fourth week of class.. Gotta love the power of creativity.

Hmm u may have noticed that i removed Outsider Art In A Box Subscription(On The Right) with my present and upcoming schedule i am streamlining some of my commitments so until further notice it will be on hold.

Well i have overdue reading to catch up on and writing... Be Creative!!!

Hail Creative Ones;
This is brief as i am on school assignment deadlines..Monday was my second collage class with Famous Empty Sky and let me tell ya she has an awesome way of creatively pushing us and my experience was being in my bliss of creativity..

Its funny how things present themselves when its time,this hands on art course came at time when i was questioning myself as an artist and my purpose. I gotta
tell ya that this brief time in this class has given me a tremendous boost and i'm feeling good!!!

The above pics are from Mondays class,yep finger painting again in fact it will be the last time so i embraced it to the fullest and the first pic are some of my papers i painted the other pics are the participants creations and some of our class tools.

Hmm where i am going with this ,well my artistic journey the past year since i took on Outsider Art In A Box ,what a ride its been i'm still bumping along here.

I've learned so much about myself and continue so...Say is Life..Well i am off to take part in the blue skies and shining sun plus do homework...

Good Morning;
Its a beauty day in the Art Hood!!! Blue skies a little chill in the air but all is well. I went to my first art class last night and wow talk about hands on,the first thing we did was get our hands dirty,yep finger painting 101 does that bring back memories as
a kid....so there i was my hands were a rainbow of colors and having a blast moving colors around let me tell u,my kid was rocking in the color world!!!

Take a look at our plastic garbage bag aprons pretty funky eh!!!! The class consists of 15 people and is already pretty lively. The focus is a good thing for me right now a balance between heavy duty school work and now a creative focused course... can we say full plate.....

Well i am off to class people so have an awesome creative filled day!!!

Happy New Year Creative Ones;
Yes i am here living large in my creative world....The holidays were a blur but very enjoyed. As i glance at my day timer i see all the full squares for places,people and places that require my time and energy over the next several months.

I am taking a Post Graduate course called Building Better Communities(Art and Social Justice),i began a while back and its a challenge as an artist as well the heavy theory component. I am also taking a 9 week hands on Collage course with Famous Empty Sky at Britannia Community Center(there is still space) this starts on Monday as well as i will be facilitating an Art Party, details to follow here on the blog within the next few days.

I've noticed my own lack of creative interest and felt i needed to kickstart it so the hands on art course is a beginning. Having the time off over the holidays allowed me to reflect over Outsider. I have not truly played a part in Outsider as an artist but more of the administrator which kicks the creative stuffing right out of ya,so with this collage course i am taking on the role of artist again,i got to tell ya i feel giddy with the excitement and possibilities.

The pic above is two of my fave things drinking tea and reading..i discovered this mug in my thrift store travels and it called to me to take it home this is my fave second mug that gives me a boost in the early am as a kick off to my day.

Keep The Arts Alive Support your local Artists!!!

Good to see you all again....I will post about the upcoming Art Party Stay Tuned..

Happy Winter Solstice

Greetings;
Happy Winter Solstice one and all..........
Winter Solstice also known as Yule, Christmas, and Saturnalia, occurs in mid December. It celebrates the birth of the new Solar year and the beginning of Winter. Colors are Red, Green, and White. This is a festival of inner renewal.
The Winter Solstice is unique among days of the year — the time of the longest night and the shortest day. The dark triumphs but only briefly. For the Solstice is also a turning point. From now on (until the Summer Solstice, at any rate), the nights grow shorter and the days grow longer, the dark wanes and the Sun waxes in power. From the dark womb of the night, the light is born.

Winter Solstice is my celebration for this time of the year and so i've been bringing solstice in a big way,last night i organized a cookie drop in, great turn out 14 womyn with many sweets in hand and then tonight off to a solstice party. The pics above is a funky mirror hanging in my office kewl eh!!! Yes that is the cookie table early evening it got fuller. Well dear readers i am signing off now until the New Year .......Happy Holidaze from Mi Casa Su Casa.

Walkabout Gastown

2008-12-10T23:21:08.866-08:00

Good Morning;Last week i spent a day in Gastown,with my friend Luchia (pic above) she purchased a beautiful fully furnished loft as an investment property and was hanging out for a week before her new tenant moved in. Gastown is full of diverse inspiration as u can see from some of the pics i took. The galleries in gastown are full of great talent and loads of creative xpression. Its great when u have someone that lives in a particular hood in a city as u see things that are non touristy its an awesome experience.I was saying to myself the other day ya know Rhonda its all and good that u facilitate this public art project but what about your small stuff,my involvement has been nil in terms of creating my own creative wares. its very easy to become bogged down in the day to day details of the logistics of Outsider or any other public art project that is ongoing. So this is changing in small ways that will lead to big steps..Stay Tuned!!!I also wanted to encourage you to check out two of Outsiders Artists that participated in the Annual Granville Island Ferries Great Garbage Can Art Contest and Auction on September 21st/2007http://walkingwithkrystin.blogspot.com/http://brushedwithmagic.com/blog/Create On....In Artistic Solidarity;Rhonda[...]

Well here is another beauty day in the neighborhood!!
My creative life runneth over and for that i am grateful for the experiences that i am participating in. Its funny how when life hands u lemons what one does with them know for sure that i did make lemonade.

In my hood an acquaintance told me about a community pottery studio so off i went on Thursday morning. Pottery was my first love and i have been away from it for a number of years i gotta say that i was intimidated and unsure where to start.

I am going to make some creations for Outsider but this will take some thought as to what...The above pics of some clay discs that i am making for a sculpture it is kewl mixing different art mediums,the other pic is a shot of the pottery studio.

The last two pics are of my journey to see the Monet-Dali show at the Vancouver Art Gallery Can i say AWESOME!! IT WAS BREATHTAKING the downside was the crowds it somewhat limited me in reading everything about the Artist.I got the stamp of the Gallery on my hand if i wanted to go back in that night at a later time i was way too exhausted.The other two floors also had great exhibits and were easier to navigate in. Way To Go Vancouver Art Gallery....

Please Support the Arts and your local Artist!!

Good Day to You!!

(Click on pic for more detail)


Good Sunny Morning;
On Saturday i was on Main St here in Vancouver BC and i spotted this awesome piece of art,i normally make a habit of carrying my camera with me so that i can capture things that catch my eye. As i was taking the picture this woman stood beside me and here is our conversation...

Woman: What is that?

Rhonda: Its an Art Car

Woman: How do you drive it?

Rhonda: Like any other car

Woman: Oh..... and then walks away shaking her head

It still surprises me at peoples reaction when they see something out of the norm.. i was in total awe of this piece of "Moving Art" and my hands applauded such creativity.. It is a boost to see how others express themselves.

I wanted to let you know that box making continues here at Outsider central today..i get to sit in my backyard take in the sun and create away..how hard can that be...Enjoy the day

Create On!!!

Hi All;
Well things truly are moving along and it feels good to be in a doing place..yesterday i cut out many boxes its a true beginning thanx for your support everybody..thanx for the comment Krystin you left...

There are many lessons and blessings that have reared up doing and not doing this project and one of them is art on Consignment its alot of work!!! plus trust,time etc and my goal is to pay everyone out over the next 2-3 months and leave consignment behind and payout the artist when they hand their work over instead of this waiting game. so i do apologize for the hanging part and for my on again/off on this project. Hang tight... and thanx for your patience it took me long enough to get clear on whats working whats not,choosing to continue this project means streamlining making some things easier on everybody.

Above also is a stained glass Mosaic i am working on for my counter top,its funny i am very much into piece work these days which truly reflects putting my life back together.

Well today is a full creative day for me so i'm at it....

Create on People!!!

Hello Artful Ones!
Here we are in September already holy creative where does the time go. I am feeling the surge of creativity flow through me and its like an old familiar friend giving me a warm hug. All i can say is Awomyn to having my creative mojo back!

Which brings me to the pics above, Outsider behind the scenes is alot of hands on work before the art work is put into the art vending machines. working with a shoe string budget has its challenges and so above are the boxes which are cut out and put together each box takes approx 3-5 minutes per box and its very time consuming and its something that i truly procrastinate on. so i am taking baby steps daily to build up my box inventory. so send me warm vibrations to get at it. As the title says i am now ready to fall back into Outsider and get reacquainted with this public art project.

Happy Fall Back Day

The Pattern Pieces Of Life......

2011-07-30T14:03:15.744-07:00

Merry Meet;
Can u believe its almost September, Hmm i wonder is my clock spinning faster than usual.Life continues to unfold here at Outsider Central as i put one foot in front of another. I truly have been on a long break and continued evaluation of the project. I am slowly getting back into creativity as somewhere i lost the will of creative expression it just up and left. Slowly i feel that deep within voice and feeling of creative expression in me but i need to be gentle for fear of losing it again.

Yesterday i got overwhelmed with a creative burst of energy and i nudged it into a slow motion action,a small hall wall was calling out for an identity of its own,wallpaper came to mind but what??? i glanced around my space and there was my whole case of pattern pieces calling to be put on the wall it was a very fitting exercise of emotional and creative exploration.As each piece of the pattern had its place and refused to be slapped into place without some thought.

Unfortunately i was unable to get a decent picture of the patterned wall but i will keep on trying...My dear friend Cindy E. bought me a new digital camera as a belated birthday gift so that i could continue to go forward in my life and capture my creative expression. Thank-You Cindy for your support of me and my art!!!

Well people i wanted to pop in and say hi...Have an awesome day

Hi Everyone;
Checking in with a brief update.... I will be moving house and studio very soon and so my time has been occupied with finding space...Much of my stuff which includes the studio will go into storage.

As some of u are aware i lost the studio due to the programme i was sharing with closed their doors and i had hoped to take the space over but the landlord doubled the rent,so my dreams went up in smoke. I have had to let go of 80% of Art Stuff which has been very sad ,other things are on hold or in limbo re:Outsider Art In A Box and I am sorry about this.

So Please Hang In There I shall return..Upcoming is a new artist of the month at Ruby Dogs Art House for August.

Create Your Way...................

2011-07-30T13:47:44.527-07:00

Good Morrow...........I hope the weekend was full of rest,relaxation and for u creatives loads of expression. After last week being a tad down and unsure where Outsider is calling home,i decided to get over it and just go with the flow and flow i did this weekend.I received beautiful unexpected blessings and lessons...Unfortunately i never made it to the studio this weekend the intention was there but the flow was taking me elsewhere but thats why i am up early this beautiful Monday so i can make a creative dash and create while i have the space...So the pic above is a story i would love to share about flowing. Thursday Night the phone rang and someone was going on about i wasn't sure what and i assumed it was a pesky telemarketer i was just about to blow them off when i heard Outsider Art In A Box mentioned, hmmm my ears perked up and i tuned in...Well it so happens that Molly Clark(on end of phone) a producer for a Art Series out of the USA was surfing on the web and came across Outsider Art In A Box and they would like to interview me on their way to Alaska.Well needless to say i was in my art centre and my mood increased tenfold,maybe life didn't suck after all lol lolSo it was arranged for Saturday as they were coming from Seattle...Well Saturday dawned and the beauty day called forth and so onward i went flowing... it was an awesome day spent with fabo friends,loads of spontaneous events took place and there i was right in the middle of it... Well early afternoon came about and no call from Artland yet??? My friend and i were still hanging and she was in need of food our location was on beautiful Main St.I suggested several places that were very crowded and so i finally said we gotta go to Sollys that place rocked and we could sit and and enjoy the outside tables. So there i sit at Sollys with the perfect Outside seat taking it all in, when suddenly i see this oversize RV turning left in huge letters and very colorful written on the Rv ARTLAND!!!Imagine my surprise and i am thinking wow and then hey i am supposed to get interviewed,well they roll to a stop in front of Sollys i go up and knock introduce myself to Claire part of the production team of Artland, So she explains to me that the cameraman was unable to cross the boarder and so everything was set back but they would be in touch and still would be interested in the interview,Molly Clark who spoke to me on the phone was also back in Seattle trying to problem solve so that their cameraman could continue the journey.For more info about ARTLAND .................WWW.ARTLANDUSA.TVSo that was an bonus part of my day on Saturday, it always amazes when one door closes other windows and doors open.. If anything i know of this weekend that Outsider will continue to live and be part of my journey,this public art project has taken me down many roads inside of self and outside in the real world..Thank-You for those that stuck with me through the growing pains its been damn appreciated let me tell you!!! and hey if you are stopping in here leave me a comment say hi!!! I love to hear from those that stop by..Well my people its time to sign off and jump into another day of adventure and some unknowns..Create On!!In Artistic Solidarity;Rhonda[...]



Ask What??????????

The studio has been a busy spot since i moved in, Sunday was a singles womyns Art Party alot of neat stuff came out of it...I love this particular card that was created by a particpant and it just touched me little did i know how impacting it would be.

Yesterday i got a call from my studio mate giving notice that the studio will be no more!!! yep u heard me..so i thought with organizing other artists would enable me to keep the space. Then another curve was thrown my way the rent of $1400 would be going up to $2800 and so the studio is not attainable at that price even with artists... So i am sad trying to suck it up and move on.....Moving on to where i don't know.

I am putting it out there for a large live/work space in Vancouver!!! Please if u do live in Vancouver keep your eyes and ears open as i am handy and can do somethings to make it my own. Its funny things truly were in Launch mode and people were supportive of the happenings at the studio. So ask the card says ASK???

I am Asking help me to find Outsider a settled home...affordable!!!

Thanx people...

In Artistic Solidarity;
