I'm great about blogging regularly, but not so great about keeping the studio website updated and current.
I've been working behind the scenes for the last couple months on a site content overhaul.
I also migrated to a different host server, which was a wee bit of a challenge technically - but I feel like a million bucks for conquering it! Tweaking and troubleshooting the publication process (corrupted permissions file) took up the majority of last evening and today.
Hoping that tomorrow will bring a return to the easel, because I am dying to paint!!
People are surprised to hear that I don't have a staff of minions taking care of these sorts of details for me. How I wish (I can barely get my kids to put their dirty clothes in the laundry room!!)
I do all my own marketing, PR, correspondence, output, packing and shipping, accounting and IT stuff. My typical work day is 10-12 hours - often more if you count the time spent noodling over ideas while doing other chores.
I'd love to figure out how to do nothing but paint. But then, how would I get to share my artwork with you? Painting in a black hole would not be nearly as rewarding as being part of the Painting a Dog a Day community.
And I truly do love every minute of my life, no matter how crazy it gets - I wouldn't trade this for anything!
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with your friends and family,
JUST ANNOUNCED!! PAINTING WORKSHOP "Mixing Color Not Mud": Saturday, October 8th, at the Orion Art Center in Lake Orion MICHIGAN, for reservations call 248-693-4986
