Taking Names

What's been bothering me.

During the winter months my classes get a big influx of students who only spend a few months here.  When they arrive back in town in January I always ask them how their painting went during our time apart. 

Most of the time (seriously 97%) the answer I get is, "I wanted to paint, or take a class or something, but it just didn't happen."

That got me to thinking, if that's happening to the majority of my students, I bet it's happening to other painters too.  Makes sense to me.


I'm working on a free on-line class to help with that.

The class isn't finished and ready to roll out yet, but I'm starting to take names for it and I'm pleased by the response I've gotten so far.


If you're interested leave a comment, or if you get this via email, hit reply and I'll add your name to my list.

If you know someone else who might be interested please feel free to share this with them.

Well that was a bust!

Seriously!

I had the bright idea (artists have a lot of those) that I had the tech savvy to make the "What's New" section of my website function as my blog and feed it out to the world like I do with this blog.
Short version, it ain't happening.

But the good news is this blog is dependable (thank goodness) and can chug along just fine with only an occasional tune up. And as a bonus I now have 2 places where friends can see what's going on in my studio: good old blogger and a brand new website.

So the news is I have a New Website

Yes, I've dragged myself into 21st century by updating my website, finally......................... 
The new site is sleek and makes me feel cool and hip. (you're supposed to giggle here) 

I'd love it if you'd look. If anything is not working or you see problems please let me know.

The web address is the same as the old one, but the new site is much prettier and easier to navigate.

www.maggieruley.com

And now on to fun stuff.

There's a great group of Plein Air painters here in Key West that go out and paint every Wednesday.  Now that the town has gotten a little quieter I don't feel so bad about playing hooky and joining them for a few hours of outdoor painting.  I've really enjoyed it.  One week we painted Tennessee William's House. Not his anymore of course, but we all still call it that. The next week we painted in the section of town called "The Meadows".  It's crammed with extremely lovely houses and cottages that are a joy to paint.

Thank goodness I had a shady spot to paint in.


I like the way the fence comes up to the tree.



Everyone have a good day,
hugs,
Maggie
