I am happy to say, I have this new blog site for a full week, and I have’t had a technological break down. I am wondering how blogging is going to pan out, as right now, I am just typing the thoughts coming to me on this topic.
I am excited for the fresh start, blogging and marketing has been one of my weaknesses. Everything from plugging myself as an artist, to offering my works for sale, ( on my website www.williampalmart.com or through my Facebook page). I will have to start posting prices and set up a more thorough and clear message about this. From what I am learning about marketing, I think it’s going to be a lot of trial and error, with plenty of learning and experimenting along the way.
A little bit more about me:
I currently work in my home studio in Hillside, NJ. I have this lovely easel I was fortunate enough to purchase from Pearl Art Store when it went out of business, paying a lot less for this as well as my taboret.
The lovely shelving behind the easel is housing my watercolors, flat works, drawing book and papers, and some other surprises in my creative pile of wonder.
The drying rack in the upper right of the photo, is nice for setting panels and smaller canvases on to dry (panels work better on it). And I have a variety of canvases on the ready. Due to my life schedule and desiring the time to paint or draw, I usually work on prepared surfaces of stretched canvas and canvas panels. Which usually get some sort of preparation for a painting, a quick toning or and tone and dry coating.
Many times I don’t mind painting on white canvas, but it is nice to have one here or there tinted blue, orange, or coated with sienna or umber. Depending on what I am going to paint. I like to have most of my materials at the ready, so I can just get right to painting or whatever project I am going to work on.
Well, for those who read these thoughts, I thank you .
