The updates have been minor, I did revamp the banner/header graphic because I was never really happy with the previous version. The new one is simple and clean.
I have been busy with website updates for several of my clients. the nice thing about working nights is that I have afternoons to sit on the patio and work on these projects.
I already hate Windows 8.1

Stan Sperlak recently added a blog to his site, and he commenced with an excellent post on his recent trip to Hawaii. Now, beside viewing his work you can get into the head of this artist, as he writes on a personal and highly readable level.

Kirk added about a dozen new paintings to his galleries. If you are unfamiliar with his work, I urge you to visit the site. I especially like his recent paintings of old rusty trucks, and vintage Volkswagen Beetles. I have a soft spot for old Beetles – I used to own a 1971 Super Beetle with sunroof that leaked when it rained!
An accomplished plein-air painter, Kirk’s subjects range from the Arizona desert mountains to the Maryland seaboard. He offers workshops, and did make one important change to an upcoming plein-air workshop; if you are from the East Coast and familiar with his work, check this out.

Yesterday was opening day of the Arizona Renaissance Festival. I am fortunate enough to live fifteen minutes from the Faire!
I have not posted recently because life has been very busy! I have been working nights, sleeping days – that doesn’t leave me much time to get into trouble.
The Ren Faire is open for almost two months. Opening day is always packed, so we had an early start. Continue reading »
