Neeeeeext.......


Okay, so finally I have managed to have the camera, its cable, the computer, and myself all at the same house at the same time. I pulled the second color on the emerging ponderosa pine linocut... when? Last week Friday? Took photos and then promptly misplaced the camera.

Of course, now that I have downloaded the photos, I have discovered that the camera struggled even more than I expected to get an image.... but the prints are hanging in the studio at home and I am at the home of those Majorca-visiting friends mentioned earlier.. so we have to put up with this. The colors are actually a very pale gray blue, and an only-slightly-less pale gray blue... but you get the idea. (They look much more contrast-y here.) The next carve will be to print green, methinks. Starting tomorrow.

But today it is gray and cool... and I've already had to build a fire in the stove to keep dog, cat, and artist comfy. Could it be we're finally succumbing to autumn?

Good Afternoon,



I am Mike Turner the relations director at allbuyart.com. I spotted your blog http://brushandbaren.blogspot.com/ on google and really liked it. We at allbuyart.com are currently creating a section of the site which will link to good quality blogs like yours as our audience has expressed that they think its a good idea of ours to create such a section.



Just to fill you in on what allbuyart.com is about, we provide art news, information on modern art movements and offer advice on buying art.



We would like to add a link to your blog from our links section: http://www.allbuyart.com/links.asp and we would ask you to provide us with a description of your blog so that we can add it next to your link.



We are only selecting a few blogs to link to so that the focus remains on quality. We spotted an artist blog by an artist called Viv King who is a south African artist. Have a look at her blog www.capescapes.blogspot.com/ and you will see that she has added a link back to allbuyart.com from her blog. The link is titled The Modern Art Resource - Allbuyart.com and it is about half way down the page. Another artist we spotted was Wendy Miller at http://www.wendybandurskimiller.blogspot.com/ .
