Day One!


Welcome to my blog!
We're very excited about launching this -- hopefully you'll find it useful (or at least entertaining) too.
Our blog will not take the place of our free, monthly online newsletter. As a matter of fact, we'll post a link to the ArtsyFartsy News as soon as we get it ready. 
In our blog you can expect a little looser style - almost like a journal entry. We'll be in the field a lot too (I've started to call it "on tour") when I am traveling to different areas for workshops. 
Just last weekend - Labor Day Weekend - Kate and I had a booth at the Sausalito Art Festival. What a great festival! The deadline every year is March 1st. You can download forms and applications from their website: http://www.sausalitoartfestival.org   They are always in the top ten of the country's outdoor festivals. The organizers make it so easy - they transport all the gear and artwork to your booth space, the communal tents are already setup, they don't take a commission, they feed and water the artists and booth assistants for all three days of the festival (Sat-Sun-Mon). There is also a killer party on Friday night. Here are a couple of photos from our booth!

Welcome to blog-land, Bob! I'm so excited that you've decided to share your art life with us. Blogging is fun—sometimes a little time consuming, but still fun to see how many people from all over the world are following your life. I hope you'll post lots of photos of your newest paintings and pictures of your workshops. I look forward to seeing you at the abstract painting workshop in Palm Springs this March!
Cheers,
Sharilyn

Very excited about your new blog feature. Really enjoyed your workshop in Sacramento. Hope you come back here again soon. You were so motivating I think I painted more this summer than I ever have before. Looking forward to you getting the on-line critique feature going. That should be great fun.

Ok Bob, I just discovered you on the 'net recently and I am not sure how I haven't heard of you before. Thanks for the content on your website, the inspiration is much appreciated. I'm sure I will be heading your way sometime in '09 to take a workshop.

We anxiously await your next blog entry. (Hint, hint.)
