Tip 1.......It's all in the details

I volunteer when needed to help hang paintings for the monthly shows at the Northwind Art Center here in Port Townsend and I am always amazed at how careless some artists are about attaching hangers to the back of the artwork they submit.  Often we end up having to adjust and sometimes change altogether the existing setup.

Here is a short video on the process I use to install a slip proof hanger wire to the back of most of my paintings.

Thinking Spring!

I know it is still February but I do believe that I could feel a hint of Spring in the air on my morning walk!  Ahh, the anticipation of fun times and great experiences ahead! This is my favorite season.

While checking my e-mails a couple of days ago, I was pleasantly surprised  to see an image of my "Valley Farm" pop up on the Artist Network Newsletter!

 Last year  the Watercolor Artist magazine called  and asked me to write a column for their "Creativity Corner" explaining my layering and glazing process.  This was one of the paintings that I created for the article that was published in the August 2012 issue.   There is a link to the article on my website.
