Miss Penny's Arty Stuff is a blog for artists. I aim to promote the many genres of the arts and share stories of interest and relevancy with an artistic community.

Awesome Aussie Hip Hop

I love the song 360 - 'Throw It Away' feat. Josh Pyke firstly because it's an example of great Aussie Hip Hop and secondly because it resonates with me on a social and economic level. Take a look and see if you haven't felt like Josh Pike at some point.

We are over this GFC and we don't want to be continually worried about money!

Let's hope our leaders make better decisions in the future. We are all too bogged down in paying bills to be as politically, socially and emotionally connected as we would like to be.

Let me know what you think.

Recycling Arts

Thanks to my regular email from Lost at E Minor http://www.lostateminor.com/ I have discovered the work of Sayaka Ganz.

Now you know I'm always bagging on about using existing material in the creation of great artworks. Remember my trashion dress?

Well check out this website for real inspiration:

A Dose of Surrealism

Check out Greg Simkins "The Pearl Thief". I've just discovered this artist and I would have to say I'm very impressed. His website is "I'm Scared" well worth checking out if you like surrealism.

My imagination was ignited - thanks Greg!

Queen Celine

I wanted to introduce you to the new love of my life, Queen Celine Celesteene. She is a 7 month old Chincilla Silver shaded kitten. We have had her since Australia Day and she has really made a great addition to our family.

I think most artists have pets, to share the many lonely hours we spend in the art of creating. I'd love to here about your pets if they are your closest work buddies.

Celine is quite inspiring - though she makes a mess of my wool basket!

An Adorable 6-Year-Old Dancer

It's heartwarming to see a child with such natural ability. He's such a little sweetheart. Best of luck for the future Tanner. Keep Dancing - you bring joy to those around you.

Cast your vote against #LiveExport -

Cast your vote against #LiveExport -

I come from a farming background and I am totally, utterly disgusted by this. Please don't sit back and do nothing. Cast your vote against this terrible cruelty.

Our government and the beef industry should be ashamed. I cannot believe that keeping foreign importers happy comes before doing what is right. Where is the bush ethos of my father's years? What a disgraceful situation.

I'm ashamed to be an Australian right now.

Help to STOP THIS for the sake of these poor creatures!
