Updating Nan's Painting Web Site
Thursday, March 2, 2017
…and a new slide show on the RiverView Gallery site. I try to update the RiverView Gallery web site every few months with a new slide show. The site is my contribution – usually that amounts to posting the Saturday sitting schedule. I took advantage of free time while sitting a couple of weeks ago to do the shooting. I'll be back to sit this Saturday, March 4 from noon to 6 The slide show doesn't show everything, but gives some idea of what's in the Gallery..
At the same time I did a major update of Nan's site. Now her available paintings are posted in the form of thumbnails that when you click on them they bring up the larger view. With a painter, it's always a question as to how to treat sold paintings – we decided to try taking them off the GALLERY page and put the ones that have become wood puzzles on the puzzle page. If anyone is curious about work that has sold, they can go there. Another change was to remove the page for her 8x10 miniatures. She's just offering them now through the Gallery – they go fast enough that there are never more than a couple available.
Above, Nan's latest painting, Surf Fishing, Bailey Island Maine. She grabs her own shots wherever we go and then pulls them out when looking for new subject matter. The fisherman was really there.
I also showed up to shoot Havre de Grace's own Mardi Gras Parade this Tuesday night. Well, "It rained on our parade!" I managed to get a couple of interesting shots while breaking in my new camera – perhaps more like the camera breaking me in – and will post them Monday. Not too bad for spending the whole time ducked under an awning on the sidewalk.
