I just attended Shawna Moore’s workshop at the Jackson Hole Art Association. It was well worth the 5 hour flight from Florida to Salt Lake City, Utah, and then the 5 hour car drive through the farms of Idaho and then through the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. The facility was great. I found Shawna from a movie that she has posted on You Tube and had to take a class with her. I have to say that I am so happy with what I learned from her. Not only did it confirm that this is what I want to do, I want to do it NOW!!!! Each time I take an encaustic painting class I know that I am one step closer in developing my own voice. Since I was a commercial art director for my entire career, I am use to designing product and art to what the customer wants and not what I want. So I am very, actual excellent at making the client happy, but now it has to be about me. See Shawna’s movie
I have finally decided that it is time to build a website to showcase my work. I have been putting it off for over a year. I have designed many websites over the past few years and have decided that “I hate it”. As a former art director and graphics designer, one would think that it would be just another creative “thing” for me. In the past the web sites that I designed were for doctors, consultants, non-art related businesses. Real boring stuff. I even took a course to learn dreamweaver so that I would not have to deal with”code”, but I learned nothing. (the teacher only wanted to teach color theory to all these techies in the class as I was the only artist). So with that all said, I dread the job ahead of me. But I know that it is important for me to help promote my artwork. If anyone knows of a create program that can help me do this task, I am all ears?
