Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!

A year or so ago, the colors of our fall leaves (here in the midwest) were lovely. This year, after a summer of almost no rain, it's mostly just brown. So, I'm posting this painting that is a still available to celebrate the beauty of October yellows against the beautiful clear blue sky!
This little painting will be making it's new home in Georgia!
Congratulations to the contest winner, who is one of my wonderful Newsletter Friends!
I will be offering contests such as this one to my newsletter friends every few months.
Newsletters should be fun! They should have news, of course (to go along with their title), but they should offer a lot more. And that's exactly what I've been trying to do... offer something interesting, something fun, and something you will think is valuable!
If you aren't sure about adding your name - maybe worried about getting flooded with lots and lots of emails? - worry no longer!
I'm just me ... I don't have a huge company with a whole lot of marketing strategies.
Actually, I work full time as a high school art teacher and I keep regular studio hours when I'm not at work!
As you can probably tell, I don't have time to write more than about 1x a month - and when I do, I want it to be something you'll really enjoy.
So, I'm adding fun things each month. The opportunity to receive discounts, participate in contests, give aways, etc come to you month by month. And I hope we can develop some dialog so I know what is important to you and what kind of art you most enjoy.
Scroll down to the previous blog post and you will find a sign up form.
When you sign up for my newsletter, your name will be added to my list. My emails come to you about the first of each month and I use a secure safe email service. Please don't worry about your info being shared elsewhere - it never is.
Also, when you sign up, you will get a special "thank you" email.
That's right! Last month, my special offer included a "member discount" for one of my newest
paintings AND a contest to pick a winner for a free original painting!
There's just 1 catch....
I only make this offer available on my newsletter list.
It's actually a win-win, because you will get:
About 1 email a month with lots of visuals and news from my studio (and sometimes other news!)
Special monthly discounts, give-aways, and contests
A chance to give me input about future projects and work. (Your opinion counts!)
Also, you will often see things first or hear about new ideas before anyone else does.
If you send me your birthday month, I'll send you a little something special
New members get a little gift for signing up!
Being a newsletter member is FREE!(Not much in our world is free, when you think about it)
And your information is safe - I use a secure service and I never share your information
It's so easy to sign up. Just fill out the information below and you'll be signed up and will receive the next newsletter which will come out around the first part of October!
So, why not?
There's nothing to lose and lots that you'll enjoy receiving from me!
And while I'm thinking of it, maybe you have friends whom you know would be interested in joining too.
So please share my information with them.
(And let me know by email if you referred a friend. If they become a member, I'll send you a thank you!)
