Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! It's a great time to get in touch with our inner child, although mine is never too far away. That's what happens when you play with art supplies and musical instruments for a living. Life is good!

Marketing tip #16:

Did you know that we all live in an 'artist town'? It's called the internet!

Grace Notes:

Being an overcomer, being a student of life, waking up to the aroma of coffee, new galleries to represent me, new library books, and singing!

Grace notes and marketing tips

Today's grace notes; Really good nail polish, designing logos, composing music, encouraging fellow artists, fountain pens, and homemade brownies with creamcheese frosting. Marketing tip #16; Create your own art showings. Need a venue? Who needs your art? If you paint pets, connect with vets, groomers, pet rescues, and pet sitters. Offer to "donate" a percentage of your sales.

Working for peace, shooting for the stars... and catching one, Florida live oaks, carving pumpkins and looking to God for happiness. A great day to paint my commissioned Ibis.

Oh how long it has been . . .

This is an original 24x24 acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas titled "Steve's Guana". It is painted from a photo of the Guana River in Ponte Vedra Florida, a family favorite preserve to hang out and get close to nature. The original is still available as well as giclees, prints and greeting cards.
