Yup my DH and I wanted to share our adventures and aren't really interested in making this a business. I just have so much going on right now!

I found that the most useful thing about a website was just to be able to give people a place to go and see your work. I have sold lots of paintings--but not a single one from the website directly. I've never tried Etsy though- that will definitely have to wait until I retire from the day job!

I put mine on Art America but I got very few hits (35 dollars a year.) I have a go-daddy account but I'm waiting for winter to work on it. Like you I am too busy with other things right now. Making art for one.

Yeah - they went down in July - I'm really going to miss that site - only $25 a year and you could google my name and it would pop up as the first listing. I'll have to take that address off my info. Thanks for reminding me. I'm thinking I'll put an album on my FB page with my art on it - I'm not ambitious enough to open an Etsy shop

I am working on a free form quilt out of some pieces of fabric I picked up a while back. I spent most of today, however, rearranging and cleaning the studio.

Hey Meg! So glad you are back. I don't understand the whole muscle thing it seems counter intuitive. I know how hard it can be to try and stay positive when it seems everything is working against you. Glad you are off the prednisone (I hate that stuff makes me feel insane) and that getting of it has helped you get the weight down. Please don't give up. You have so much life to give.

Hugs

I went to the Coquille Celebration last month with my granddaughter. She seemed very impressed. I treated her to her first fry bread. Yummy stuff I'd forgotten how good it is. She also met a friend of mine who is a tribal member.

Got the kids back to Vegas today and am enjoying relaxing. They were glad to get home as they have been gone for 7 weeks. Their papa was glad to have them back.

My grandkids are here until Sunday and I've been doing ok with the eating. Exercise has been easy because I have been working at the fair and our exhibit is upstairs. I've put on a lot of miles on my feet so far. LOL

Good luck with getting back on track.

I worked graveyard at a factory many years ago that had a potluck weekly. I'm sure between the lack of exercise and the excessive eating my bad habits got a good start. Two more potlucks this month. Yow

When I worked on the floor (in the hospital) we always had what we called 'Fat Friday'--a potluck every week! It was themed, too. A great way to boost morale, but it was also served as a vehicle to eat my way through the shift. I could do without potlucks ;-).

I stopped by one of those Wine and Canvas type businesses a couple of weeks ago, and it really looked like fun. That night they were going to put a local twist on their canvases by painting the Van Gogh "Starry Night" over the famous dance hall that's in our town. Clever!

Attended a 'Wine and Canvas' session at a local restaurant on Sunday. Using acrylic paint--something I'm totally unfamiliar with, lol--we painted Van Gogh's Sunflowers, or a version of them anyway. There's nothing like painting to understand you have no idea of perspective! Something to keep working on, but it was a fun time.

I saw two Matisse exhibitions last week, so I've been copying Matisse paintings in my art journal. Will do some cut-outs next week when my 11-year-old granddaughter comes for Summer Nonna Camp. I'll take her to see the exhibits, too, so we'll be working with a lot of color next week with our crafts!

Wow the question does medium matter is one that I've never been asked before. I think most art purchases consist of 2 kinds of buyers. The impulse buyer that just has to have that painting and the decorator who knows the color and size will work. The collector I left out as they tend to buy known artists.

Now this is my opinion based on observation. I would encourage you to check out co-ops and such to display. This works well in towns that have a reputation for art.

Yeah, the commission rate seems really high. I have sold some paintings through my facebook business page, but I'd like to get more exposure.

I need to look into doing some art shows. For my more popular paintings I'd like to make prints, but not sure where to do that at?

In your experience does the medium matter, or is it just the image? I paint with melted crayon, which is not really main stream medium. It gives my paintings almost a 3D quality with texture. I wonder if that would get lost in the prints?

Thanks for any who have any advice or insight. I appreciate it.

Galleries are usually asking 40-60% of the sale. it takes some legwork or if you can find an agent even better. My DH and I sell some but mostly through our website at Fine Art America. We are changing to a more personal site right now so it is up in the air. We also belong to a photo club and have 2-3 shows a year through them.

Sorry you have to have so much dental work, Nutmeg25. I had to have the same thing done several years ago. Now my gums are receding from that area. Had another bone graft two years ago, but that didn't take. Don't know what is going to happen, now... Dental work is definitely not my favorite thing, so I wish you the best.

I didn't know what a Potlach was, so I had to look it up. Sounds very interesting! There are so many customs, events, etc. here in the United States that I know nothing about. It's always fun to meet new people and learn something new.

Wish it were gold! Some how the root of one of my front teeth cracked & they had to pull it, put in a bone graft & had to make a flipper so I wouldn't be toothless. Next they will put in a post & a fake tooth. I am too vain to go toothless. The whole process takes about 6 months.

Still working on necklaces & a banner for Potlatch. Starting to have some people RSVP now for free camping spaces & food count.

Yikes! I had my teeth cleaned before I went on vacation. I no longer have insurance so I had to pay out of pocket. Ouch.

Medford was in the 90's with a cool breeze. No photos---was too busy!
Still too busy but trying to take time to exercise. Last month put everyone else first. It is soo hard to put me first.

I was sad to read that Robert Genn passed away May 28. I have long enjoyed his weekly writings. It appears his daughter Sara will be carrying on his blog. emoticon painterskeys.com/

Oh I envy you. I would love to go gallery hoping. I did have some fun today shooting wild donkeys. The herds have been around since I was a child but this is the first time they were somewhere I could photograph.

Hope you're enjoying your trip, F8CONE8 -- except for the hot weather!
My oldest granddaughter will graduate from 8th grade tomorrow night, so I'm looking forward to going to visit for that.
I went to Houston last week-end and saw two wonderful art exhibits -- Rene Magritte at The Menil Collection and John Singer Sargent's Watercolors at the Houston Museum of Fine Art. On Sunday I went to the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio to see the Robert Indiana exhibits for the third time -- and the last day they were on view. All of them were GREAT shows! Going to art museums does wonders for my soul!

OMG I am not used to the heat. I normally walk in 62 - 72 degree weather. It has been 89 all day. I took a walk around the hotel area and about melted. I got my 3 miles in but it was rough and slow.

Have fun in Medford.

California for a graduation, Vegas to see grandkids, Colorado to see a son, and Iowa to visit relatives. Hopefully, we will get some photography in while we are at it.

Went to my quilter group today and as it is in Coquille (Inland) I almost died. It had to be 85 out there. Home to my ocean breezes. emoticon

I hope they are wrong too. We have the women's walk and talk on Saturday (rain or shine). My sisty in law is walking with me so we can have a nice visit. I will walk in the rain but I prefer not to.

I remember living in So Cal and having water restrictions. I would save the water that flowed in the tub from the shower to give my plants a drink. Otherwise it would have been wasted. It helped some but still my lawn and some of my more fragile plants died.

That's wonderful!
Our drought is continuing, and with the water restrictions in effect, my plants and lawn are suffering here in the heat.
I'm glad that you're getting some rain there!

I melt at 70 degrees and yesterday it was 91! I had to get the fan out.. LOL Today isn't much better. I remember water restrictions in California and how my beautiful gardens went belly up. I am fortunate here no restrictions!!!!

Glad you are seeing the downhill side of the volunteering.

We've been experiencing extremely high temperatures here already this season, too. But today is nice and mild for a change. Still on water restrictions, so must water by hand.

I've let my volunteer work get the best of me, too, F8CONE8. The last weekly class that I've been coordinating since January was yesterday, with graduation scheduled for tomorrow, so I'll be extra busy this week getting everything finished for that. Then I'll enjoy visiting with my family who is coming for Mother's Day week-end.
