At one time this site was listed in the top of Google. I had a social media network with over 14,000 subscribers. I have needed to scale back because of lack of time and unfriendly individuals who try to impair this site. I hope the people that are truly interested in the site’s content will stick around. It’s hard to know if anyone out there is paying attention anymore. I sincerely hope to provide nice content and a brief escape from all the stresses that we all have to deal with in the world. In the meantime please follow @artist_scape on twitter.
This was an older painting that I reworked. I am much happier with the result. A good friend at the gallery purchased this.
It was time to change the site again. What do you think? It has been my goal for a number of years to deliver content that is easy to maintain. A big priority for me is to have something that I enjoy but is not too much work to maintain. After all I want the majority of my time to be in the studio making more art for this site!
Thank you to all of the visitors, at this point I can guesstimate that we have around 15,000 visitors! That’s incredible!
I hope you look forward to the next chapter of this site as much as I do!
A couple weeks ago I attended Art of Painting in the 21st Century at the John Natsoulas Gallery. There was a painting demonstration by Frank Ordaz which was very satisfying to watch. Frank was generous with information and did a great job engaging with the crowd.
After the demonstration there was a panel that consisted of Kelly Detweiler, Professor of Art at Santa Clara University, DeWitt Cheng, Stanford Art Spaces curator and Pat Mahony, renowned painter.(https://natsoulas.com/event/art-painting-21st-century)
This was one of the best panels that I have ever been to (and I’ve been to quite a few). All the panelists were friendly, accessible and very knowledgeable. They were generous with their time and expertise. I never felt as connected to a group of panelists before. I guess timing is everything.
