Lesson #1 asked us to write a blog post describing the type(s) of people I would like to visit and read my blog.
That person is you! My blog readers are someone who is a variety of ages and are interested in seeing my work evolve. They enjoy my writing and probably live in the northwest or are interested in the northwest landscapes. They look forward to my blog posts and will interact with me through email or comment on my blog when they want to say something about what they've seen or read.
Also, I'm to write about what I want to get from blogging: My goal is to write more articulately about my work. Share how and why I choose to paint what I do. Also to build a larger audience who like my work.
Now on to some more exciting news. After I painted the two shells on the right (in the photo below), I decided to paint some other shells I found on the beach. A muscle shell and an oyster shell. All 4 of these shell paintings are small 3.5" x 3.5" x 1/2" and just perfect to set on small easels or hang as a grouping. One of my collectors saw one of the original blog posts about the shell paintings and contacted me to purchase them. Isn't the internet wonderful? Thank you D.B. !
When I originally painted them I had no thought of ever painting more shell paintings, but now after talking with my collector I think I may keep some of these in stock for people to purchase as a last minute as a low cost gift. A nice small original at an affordable price. Everyone needs to own original art work don't you think?
Excuse the poor quality of this photo. I think I'm in the need of a small photo booth.
