New Site Design

geese sketchOnce again, I've redesigned the website. I think it's alright . . . haven't double-checked it with Internet Explorer, but it's working with Firefox (let me know if something doesn't work for you).

I've had this idea for a while of making my main website the blog, instead of just a static landing page. Anyway, it simplifies things for me.

It's been a while since my last post (a full month), but, sadly, not much has happened since then. The weather has been typical Louisiana summer fare: hot and humid with the occasional thunderstorm. So I made the decision to skip the June and August Northshore Art Markets (the August one is this Saturday). I plan on returning to the Art Market in October, unless something changes (then by definition . . .), and I'm also considering the Madisonville art market in September.

Skipping these venues has left something of a vacancy in the commissions I normally take on - at least I think that's what is to blame - and, as such, I've found it difficult to get back into my normal painting rhythm. [side thought: why is it that when business is going slow for me, everyone feels the need to ask me, "so, how's the painting going?"!?!]

In the meantime, I have gotten some painting done and have made it up to the Ponchatoula Furniture Gallery to change out some paintings. I spent some time there making some changes to a commissioned landscape. It was fun painting somewhere different and painting in "public", and there was talk about me and artist Bill Hemmerling doing a painting demonstration sometime in the future [I'll let you know if that happens].

Well, that's all I can come up with right now. Back to the easel for me. Let me know what you think of the new look, and if you have any suggestions. Thanks.
