Welcome to a new blog, “A Painter’s Progress,” a new website, JHart-Artist, and a New Year!
I made a few New Year’s resolutions that I would like to share with you:
- I would like to invite you to be a witness to my daily practice of painting. This blog is a great way for you to get a peek into what is involved in creating art. You will see and understand how I make art: what the struggles are, and what the pleasures. I will happily answer any of your questions about the process. It is also a good way for me to stay honest about what I do!
- I have also changed my art practice to be more collaborative. Like artists in the past, I must be responsive to the needs of my society. So, to a certain degree, my skills are in the service of my fans’ and patrons’ interests and passions. I can paint anything in any style, but I am interested in learning what you want to see in a painting. Your comments are important to me!
- And finally, I am building and running this blog & website myself. I had a great webmaster, Natalia Usselman, for my last website, but I found that having someone else set it up and run it let me off the hook. For the New Year, I am pulling up my big-girl panties and building and running http://www.jhart-artist.com myself. It will be, like all my other art pieces, a work in progress!
Hoping to hear from you soon!
