I can’t believe it’s already February! Yikes!
I have been flying by the seat of my pants and winging it a bit by setting up my website all by myself and with the wonderful support I get from WordPress! It has been a tiresome and confusing experience. Only those with competent computer skills should try it. I consider myself competent and I still found it difficult but now I’m getting my head around it. I have also been trying to figure out Mailpoet and Mailchimp for my newsletter and both these sites have confounded me. They don’t have instant chat like WordPress do, so when I have a problem I have to email them and it takes days for them to reply! Sooooo, I haven’t chosen who I will go with yet. Hopefully I will have worked it out by next blog.
I have also been painting a series of seascapes in my studio and still going. Checkout my latest (February) newsletter for updates on these. (You can find it on my website soon, fingers crossed.) I’m going to keep on with seascape studies for awhile. It’s great to study and experiment with different strokes, brushes and palette knife work. Last year I gessoed and cut 140 boards, (9×12″) precisely for these studies. That will keep me busy for most of the year.
I have sold four paintings already this year so that makes me pleased and I am so very grateful to the buyers for supporting me, a small and local business.
Don’t forget to sign up for my monthly newsletter which you can do at my website, https://margielangtip.com where you can keep updated with my latest happenings and news and of course a chance in a draw prize of a small painting for those who sign up. This occurs each quarter.
Anyway, that’s it from me for now. Until next time….
