Valri Peyser: Open Studios

Friday, June 18th, 2010

My aunt Valri Peyser is an amazing artist and she is going to be a part of this next up in-coming Open Studios in October. I got to photograph some of her most recent projects she is working on that will be a part of the open studios show like these amazing decorated wine bottles.

The bottles are really amazing, each with its own personality and flare that is unique in itself. The front portrays a person ranging from a head shot to a half body portrait and the back is a beautiful pattern like flowers, stripes, dots, swirls, or any other design you can think of.

Her beautiful wine bottles won’t be the only art on display, her paintings will also be there for Open Studios.

Bright, colorful, fun, and artfully crafted, I can’t wait to see what else she will have come the date of the Open Studios in October.

To contact my aunt about her work, see her website: So come check out her open studio this year, you may even see me 😀

Cheshire Grin

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Smile real wide
Let the Cheshire cat inside
He has been waiting
To be let in
Ever patient
With a demon’s grin
Waiting outside your window
Looking inside your life
Looking for a way in
To your lonely little world
He has a fancy for games
And riddles it seems
So play a game
Let down your wall
And let the Cheshire cat in
Watch as its face splits open
With the devil’s smile
As it laughs
And laughs
And laughs
At you
And the game you call your life
Yet there is nothing
That you can do
As you sit paralyzed and wait
Insanity is knocking on your door
You have blocked and barricaded
And sealed all the locks
Yet every moment the clock
Ticks faster
Until all your time is lost
The cat is laughing
As you loose your mind
You plead for help
But it just keeps going
And going
As the pendulum swings faster
You pray for silence
And your eyes to block out
The demon’s smile
It is eating you away
Until you realize it is nothing
Just a cat and its smile
Just a laugh and a whisper
That all is not well
Look the cat in the eye
And walk away
Down the path you came
Smile real wide
At the forest’s darkness
And let the Cheshire cat inside

Thanks Mattie Leed for the amazing pot and the inspiration.


Flowers and Art

IMG_6176 More Open Studios art….

Here is a nice combination of my photography and an open studios artists work.

I really enjoyed the way this photo turned out and learning about this womans style of art.

I think it was called encaustic, but anyway it was very cool use of wax and paper. Very interesting.

It is always fun during open studios to find not only new artists but the ways they execute their art.

I just loved the white flowers so I decided to use them as the center point of the photo. Turned out better than I thought.

Encore weekend, I can’t wait.

Snow White

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009


I love this piece, it is called Snow White. I found it in the Tannery during Open Studios. I think I would like to do a piece like this for IB Art. Looks really fun just glueing big empty paint cans to a canvas. My kind of art.

Pikachu I Choose You

This painting was really cool, it was basically a gigantic Where’s Waldo painting full of cool little things. Pikachu was just one of many, I thought some of my friends would appreciate this. The artist had a lot of cool work.


Open Studios

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009


Can you say new favorite artist? I went to open studios today and found some really great artists in Tannery Row. By far my new favorite artist is number 43 Camille Krilanoviche. Her art was amazing, I wish I could buy some of the originals. Here is one piece I really enjoyed called Flex Flight. Keep up the good work artists
