Technology changes! This new website will look good on mobile devices and loads nicely and is certainly easier for me to update. I have also added two features. This blog page, for one, to make it easy to share stories and ideas, and a Student Work page. I'm pretty sure everyone will enjoy seeing others' painting and also having a way to share their own new work.
The site is finally ready for inspection. You can help me out. Be an editor! I want to know about typos, links that don't work right, confusing navigation, suggestions for improvement. My goal is that you can find the information you want and find it easily.
I'd also like to point to two pages under News for those interested. "Speaking of Art" is quotations from a variety of sources talking about Art and its role. "Art and Your Life: A Friendly Connection" is the outline of a class I imagined that uses Tips on Letting Go, Making Choices, and Experiencing Connection to enhance your painting - and maybe other - endeavors.
Everyone likes to see other people's work. And teachers (like me) love to see what happens when students continue painting. You can share photos here in this space informally, or I have added a Gallery Page to the main website for Student Work. Email me photos and I will add them. I can include your name and the picture title, or it can be anonymous.
Hello Everyone. Here is a new space for me to share stories and bits of info, and for you to do the same. You know, one of the big advantages of taking a class is seeing and hearing everyone else's ideas. This blog is a way to continue that advantage as people continue to paint and experiment, or have those accidents that lead to new "techniques". Please feel free to share your two cents worth. We'll all benefit.
Feel free to ask questions! They make good topics for future posts and you can be sure other people have been wondering the same thing. I get everything from "Where do you get your patterns" to "This dreadful thing happened. Why? What can I do?" to
"How do you get the gutta into that little bottle?!" It's all helpful. Email me.
