Website Update

After many hours in front of this here computer, I am now deliriously tired and sporting a cracking headache. Not only that, but after wrangling with my art,business, and image files, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is all a mess. To put it nicely. 

But there is hope. I am currently reading two books: “Taking The Leap” by Cay Lang, and “I’d Rather Be in the Studio!” by Alyson Stanfield (who writes the art biz blog, over there in the sidebar). They have very similar information, but are written in different styles. I think they compliment one another rather well, so I’ve been hopping from one to the other, and comparing advice. They have good information about setting goals, getting organized, approaching different markets, and prioritizing. Exactly what I am needing.

The result of my hours on the computer is that I’ve  managed to track down, extract, and format images of paintings I have here in my studio. I’ve updated my Artspan page to reflect artwork I currently have for viewing and sale:  nests and encaustic paintings. Just click on the Artspan link in the sidebar under “My Artwork”. 

Enjoy!

Now, if I could just get the rest of those files organized…..

Views of Birds and Bees at Enso

Here are some shots from the show at Enso. Lovely, lovely space. Wonderful people there, too. No shots from the opening, as I forgot my camera (!), but it went well, and I visited with friends and family and met lots of interensting, artistically minded locals. Just what I was hoping for…

Remember all of those little encaustics? They pack a punch hung all together like this.

This nest is going to a new home on the coastside. 

And here are some shots of the outside of the gallery/yoga studio. How appropriate- to have an art gallery space inside a work of art! The building feels truly hand made, rustic and recycled, all at once.

As for me, I’ve taken a bit of a breather from art this week, preparing for the new homeschooling year, and getting my daughter ready for her first year of public high school. I did clean up my studio, and have been preparing supports for a variation series on the small encaustics I’ve been working on.  I also have another project in the works, but that’s secret for now…..
