My new business card! I love having a memorable card to give to prospective collectors. I try to design it to be colorful, representative of my current work and style and to be - well, simply unforgettable! Its fun to hand them out at art show receptions, social events and serendipitous meetings. I create mine online at VistaPrint. At this site, you can upload photos of your own and design your card exactly as you want it to be. I have ordered from them in the past and found the cards to be of very nice quality and the prices to be reasonable. This time, on a whim, I also ordered a few refridgerator magnets - I don't know why but I sure hope I can find a use for them! In case you are interested, the link is: VistaPrint Business Cards.

http://www.foxhuntinglife.com/. Scroll down a bit to see - there is a slide show of some of my steelechase paintings. Unfortunately, you need a subscription to the site in order to see the entire article and the slide show! But please don't feel bad - I am not able to access it either and have only seen a copy of the article! Next week my Santa and his zebra will appear as the heading banner for the site! Many thanks to Jeanne Chisholm of Chisholm Gallery for arranging this and to Norman Fine of FoxHunting Life for his wonderful article.

Jeanne Chisholm of Chisholm Gallery introduced me to a new concept and assisted me in putting together a Christmas E-Blast. This is a brand new term for me! An e-blast consists of a PDF presentation that is attached to an email and sent by the gallery to potential collectors. The PDF presentation serves as a high quality photographic respresentation of the paintings - much like a brochure. I called mine A Multifaceted Approach as it contains an eclectic assortment of paintings in a variety of sizes as you can see here. Of course, Santa on his wild purple and golden zebra was on the cover! I wish I could have attached the actual PDF file but could not do that. Instead, I will show you individually each piece in the Christmas E-Blast presentation:
Camel Rider 11x14
Deyrolle Interior, Paris 20x16
Great Dane 16x12
Two Horses, 20x16
T'ang Horse, 18x24
Islay Wild Goat, 16x12
Trying to be Flexible in Uncertain Times 24x18
What fun this was! I find I am recently learning alot about the business of art. I never knew it was so complex! If anyone is interested in purchasing one of theses paintings, please contact Jeanne Chisholm at firstname.lastname@example.org
By the way, if you would like to see the actual e-blast, just send me an email and I will forward the PDF file to you by email. It is nicely printable as well!
