A Quaint Street

I mentioned a bit about my newsletter in an earlier post this week. As much as I LOVE my blog (and all of you!) I realize that most of the readers of my blog are artists. I decided I need to also reach out to everyone else. So, I signed up with the company Constant Contact which enabled me to set up an email database and also create a newsletter. They also keep you "spam compliant" which apparently is important these days.
I receive two daily newsletters that discuss marketing for artists (they are written by Clint Watson and Tony Moffitt). Both of them encourage artists to develop a mailing list and monthly newsletter. I guess it finally sunk in.
So, this morning I sent out the May Newsletter. My initial list has just over 300 contacts and I hope it will continue to grow throughout the year. I am featuring two fun monthly columns which are "Where to Find Really Good Art" and "My Favorite New Artist". I am excited to feature some of my favorite artists in my newsletters to come!

Wonderful painting Leslie! I am amazed at your versatility with a limited palette of colors. I think I'll try it soon....

You are amazing with your color, Leslie! The perfect ratio of warm and cools, it seems to me! Also, I'm intrigued with the newsletter--send me one?

Hi Leslie. I love your work, too. Great light and reflections. I enjoyed reading your comments about a newsletter. I agree with you. I should get on that. A mailing list is soooooo important. I belong to Oil Painters of America and California Art Club, also. Perhaps our paths will cross someday……well……thanks to blogs, I guess they already have :-}
