Great help in the art world

I want to strongly recommend using art consultants when
you are working on changing your art business, or
even just need information on how to refine the methods
you're already using. I had a wonderful talk today with
Alyson Stanfield, from Art Biz Blog and feel so much
happier about my future plans.

I also helped a wonderful artist friend of mine,
Jennifer Hinrichs start her blog and get her first
entry together. I know you're going to love her
art, because she is an amazing painter and a
complete original. We have had lots of shows
together in the past, and used to work on an
art magazine together. Hop over to her site
now and be one of the first to comment on her
brand new venture.

I'm including a sketch I did a couple of days ago of the
model featured in several of my recent paintings.

That's all for today folks. It is late and time for bed.

Have a getting-help-when-you-need-it day.

I have heard a couple of talks by Alyson Stanfield and she is great. No doubt gave you great ideas and direction... AND so nice to meet your painting friend and new blogger. You're a good friend! XOXO

Hi Laura,

I am lucky to have wonderful artists to talk to right here in Toronto, and artist friends like you all over the world. Don't we live in an exciting time. Yes two more reasons to be happy!

Take care,

Barbara
