Choosing a title for your Painting...

I had fun titling my mini fruit series!

First, we had the lemon, which I named 'Not an Apple'... then we had the apple, which I named, 'Not a Banana'... and here we have...

'Not a Vauxhall Cavalier!'

Well, after all it isn't a Vauxhall Cavalier, is it??  
  1. Does it have a steering wheel? No! 
  2. Does it go from 0-60 mph in 6 seconds? ... Hmm...well that depends on how hungry I am I suppose...
Hehehe ;0)

Anyway, collectively I have named them...

'Traffic Lights'

And why the bonkers titles? 
Well, I'll be sharing my views on titles in the first of my Quarterly Newsletters, which comes out on the 1st of May. So don't forget to sign up if you haven't already! 
Over the year I'll also be sharing news, studio tips and offering subscribers exclusive discounts. I'll also be linking up to some of my favourite Artists!

And don't forget, subscribers will also get three draws in to my

What's the point of a Newsletter?

Sigh.... Recently I came across this photograph of a section of one of my bear paintings. 
It was the one I destroyed a couple of years ago. Somehow the composition just wasn't working and I got SO frustrated with it, that in the end I put my foot through it!   
Of course I regret it now - I'm sure there must have been something I could have done.
Ah well, perhaps I should do it again...?

Meanwhile, I now have the perfect excuse to use this photo, because today I am talking about Newsletters!  
Okay, so it's not 'Newspapers', but it's close enough!
From this coming May, I will be sending a Quarterly Newsletter to those of you 
 who would like to sign up
 Personally, I don't like my inbox being clogged up with weekly newsletters.
For this reason, I have opted to send mine quarterly, around the 1st day of February, May, August and November. 

So - Why sign up? What's the point? 

  • Well, over the year, I'll be sharing studio tips, reviewing tools and showing work in progress
  • I'll also be sharing tips on framing, gift ideas and newest available work
  • I 'll be featuring a piece of work by another Artist in each Newsletter - and if you are an Artist, then there is a chance that one of them might even be you!
  • You will be offered exclusive discounts on selected pieces of my work for as long as you remain subscribed.
  • You will also get three entries in to my Limited Edition Teddy Bear Print Giveaway, which I will be posting about soon. 
My aim is that my Newsletter will be something that you will want to read, because there will be something in it I hope, for both Artists and collectors alike.
 So, if you would like to sign up, CLICK HERE
 (Please be assured that if you choose to sign up, your details will never be shared!)

Meanwhile, if you want to see the other snippets from the bear that never saw the light of day, 
Makes me quite sad looking at it now...
