It was time to update the look of my professional webpage: not a huge change, just a little one. I am not a fan of constant movement on webpages, so I removed the dropdown lists--you know, the lists that pop out when the mouse hovers over the tabs above and disappear when the mouse moves on to another tab. You can still find all the same information under "About Me," "Notable Projects," and "Unit Plans," but in the form of buttons instead. I prefer to choose and click what information pops up when I'm surfing, and buttons instead of dropdown lists give me that option. Hope you like the changes also.
I am showing a few acrylic and watercolor pieces on this year's annual Artisans' Road Trip show. There are 41 artists showing work around the Iowa Great Lakes area and I am excited to be one of them. My show is at the Fieldstone RV park in the campground's community building. We keep our camper here year round so all I had to do was set up my work and put out the "Stop Here" signs.
One of my pieces, this watercolor painting, has been used for a few of the group's advertising media. It's fun when guests come in and recognize it right away. "Oh, there it is." or "Oh, I didn't realize there was a face in it... no, there are two faces."
Other than the reward of having gone through the process of getting ready for this show and then following through with it, I have made some wonderful contacts this weekend. Two different gallery owners have invited me to show my work in their galleries. Boy, now I truly have some work laid out in front of me.
