Sailing Day

Pin It
"Sailing Day"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel
$200 with display easel.
This painting really depicts summer to me and now that the 4th is behind us ... it really feels like summer! We are still in Austin at the Volleyball Junior Nationals and so far things are going very well. The weather here is interesting ... certainly different from Southern California. I guess I forgot what real humidity is like!
I did receive some great news this week. Two of my paintings are going to be featured in the Dick Blick Holiday Catalog. They contacted me and I was thrilled. The exposure is simply amazing. Yippee!
Don't forget I am offering another "free giveaway". Anyone who comments on my blog tis week will be eligible. This Friday at 10:00 a.m. PST I will hold a drawing and one lucky person will win a Free One Hour Marketing Consultation with me! This service is valued at $200 and will include a discussion of your art website, blog and/or marketing materials (if you have any!). This is your chance to discuss what results you would like to see from your website and blog and my chance to make sure you you are doing everything you can to make that happen.
