Blog Tour

I am going to be participating in Alyson's blog tour of her new book her in my blog on April 8th!
I just received the book in the mail and have already started underlining. I plan to give away a book here on my blog, details will be posted soon.

I’d Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion is for artists of all kinds. Painters, sculptors, ceramist, jewelers, photographers, and others will benefit from the easy-to-follow self-promotion practices in this book.
Author and art-marketing consultant Alyson B. Stanfield, of, focuses on sharing the artwork directly with potential buyers through electronic and traditional communication outlets—in a manner that is comfortable, not artificial. Artists match Internet marketing strategies with sincere personal skills to take charge of their art careers.
The book includes online worksheets and downloads.

In my studio I continue with "Glory of the West". I returned to this piece. I love a fresh new objective take on my artwork. My new eyes brought me to darken the trees and soften the purple rocks in the background.

In your current painting above of this work in progress, I definitely like how you've softened the purples to make the painting recede in that top left corner. I also LOVE how you've made the canyon sing with it's voice of light and colour. It is emerging forward and draws my eye in immediately. I await what you will do with the middle purplish area of the canyon and whether you'll work on the green tree on the right some more and in the area on the lower left corner.
It's invigorating to see your work in progress. WIsh I could see it in real life to be more constructive because the colors on my monitor do not show the subtleties of the layering in beautiful pastel work, nearly as much as in real life!
