When I first rebranded my blog about 3 months ago, I purposely left out my artwork. It was haphazardly strung out across multiple platforms and I knew I needed to gather it into a cohesive body of work. So as I learned about my new website platform, redesigned the pages, and gathered the travel articles I wanted to include, I worked on the art in the “background” so it was not visible to the rest of the world. It begged the question from family and friends, “Where did your artwork go”?
Well, I am now happy to tell you that I have integrated my artwork and photography back into my site. You can find the Art & Photography galleries here. It was quite the task, eliminating pieces and reorganizing them into galleries I knew I would continue building. The galleries are broken down into “subjects” that I tend to photograph often. The photographs inspire me to create artwork. It’s a nice little merry-go-round that I quite enjoy. And the design for this website get my creative bubbles going too.
One of the fun things I enjoy is giving away freebies. Every month, newsletter subscribers get a quick update on what is going on in the studio and my little adventures. They also receive a new digital wallpaper for their phones, tablet or desktops. For instance, for April’s download, I started with this photograph I took while camping last year. I was trying my hand at lens movement while capturing an image. I ended up with this one that worked. If you would like to see the 559 blurry ones, please let me know. (smirk) It was a fun experiment and made for an interesting piece.
With a little fun on the computer and some text, you get a fun little wallpaper for your devices. Would you like this download this month? Be sure to sign up for the newsletter. This new download will be updated at the end of the week.
