Artists For Conservation

I became a Signature Member of this prestigious society at the end of last year. Recently I had my profile on their website go live for the first time. I hope you will visit and take a look. I will add more in the future.

Part of my initial profile presence was to add to my newspage a little bit about Maximus, the gorilla sculpture I painted in December. Today I noticed that this has been selected to appear under the Nature Art News section on the Home Page for the site. This is something I had not expected, but I'm so proud and pleased to see it was deemed newsworthy for all to see.
I will also soon add a official link for the Artists For Conservation website to this blog.

Update... I have now added the Artists For Conservation banner logo which is a link to their home page. Please visit and browse through the wonderful artists they have as members.

Happy New Year

I hope 2012 was good for you and that you had a great Christmas and New Year no matter what your religious denomination may be. After all the sentiments expressed at that time should be for all.

For all my readers who pop by regularly or now and again, thank you for your support and I hope you will continue to drop in to read my mutterings during the next year. I have a few workshops already lined up and I am back at Nature in Art as an artist in residence later in the year.. I will soon update the list of events of what has been confirmed so far.

I am still working on my Artists For Conservation profile, (it won't be live on their website until I have finished) unfortunately my progress there has been hampered by major redecorating works in the house, the usual Christmas Frenzy and the last minute commission to paint another gorilla in December. The decorating work is still ongoing, but hopefully not too far away from completion and then my artwork can get back to normal. Painting has been on hold due to excessive amounts of dust around the house due to demolition and sanding of plaster, paint and polyfilla. I will be glad when the last of the work has been done, the dust settled and eventually swept and wiped away for the last time!

In the meantime I wish you a very Happy New Year and hope that it is kind to you.
