Happy July 4th Super day and so much going on!

 This is the image of me with Kristal Hart in New York City.  
The whole video is on my blog.  Just click Kristal Hart and 
you can watch it. 

There's so much happening I don't know where to begin,
and this is the sleepy summer time right?  Wrong.
I worked right through the Canada Day weekend on a
commission that my client is pleased with.  I will
show that to you tomorrow!

The big news today is that yesterday Alyson Stanfield
featured me in her newsletter yesterday The Art Biz Insider.
I planned to put this on then, but have been travelling
and without internet so click on the link and see it.
I am a major fan of Alyson and

I was before I first talked
to her.  When I was going to be on the Oprah Winfrey
Show, I called Alyson for advice.  As I recall she
was hurrying to get ready for a conference, but took
my call anyway and was so helpful about how to
conduct myself, how to prepare my blog and much more.

Her book I'd Rather Be In The Studio is a bible for
those of us trying to organize ourselves to succeed
in the art business.  Sometimes it's hard for artists
to realize that aside from creating the work, making
art is a job, and deserves our attention to the elements
that will help make that job pay!

I will have more great news for you tomorrow.
Meanwhile.  Thank you for your support all the
way along in this blog world.  You know I think
it's a miracle that we've met one another this way.

Have a making-great-art-connections-day.
