laura balombini: new work, new website

As promised, I’m back with news from another artist I recently worked with and she has new work and a new website to share! I first became aware of Laura Balombini several years ago when she was telling stories with her polymer/wire and polymer/found object figures. To this day I still consider her polymer work some of the best I’ve seen.

Today Laura is using different materials to share her considerable talents as a 2D/3D storyteller. The results continue to bring joy, color, light and often a touch of whimsy to our lives.

When Laura contacted me a few months ago for assistance organizing the content and handling the initial setup for her new SquareSpace site I was happy I had room in my schedule. I’ve long been an ardent fan of both her work and her unstoppable spirit.

Balombini knows her way around the back end of a website and she is no stranger to creating a lovely showcase for her work. This time when she was ready for a new site she was quite busy and chose to reach out for assistance. I was happy to be of service and Laura made my job easy. She got content to me quickly, asked lots of questions, experimented a bit, had a good idea of what she wanted. And it shows. Her site looks great!

Laura’s work can be found in several places on the web. Now she has a clean, elegant home base for paintings (ranging in size from 9″x9″ to 36″x36″) and Coreline’s Closet, her line of artfully refashioned women’s clothing.

holi festival, when all the world is a canvas

Holi, the Hindu festival also known as the Festival Of Colors, is a time of shedding inhibitions, casting restrictions and differences aside and celebrating with great joy.

Rañgotsava - Festival of colors

The festival marks the coming of Spring and the riot of color and new life this season brings every year. It usually takes place in early March and revolves around the central ritual of throwing and applying colored powders and water on each other.

eastern market bottles

Rows and rows of bottles neatly arranged, filled with colorful oils at Eastern Market in Washington DC.  I remember being mesmerized by the bottles, the peddler and the stories he told. From my collection of images – one of my favorites.
