Southwest Abstractions Adds Blog

Recently I joined a Santa Fe Artists' Group, a group of talented men and women who provide inspiration and constructive criticism of my work.  Each month we explore a topic -- creating a web presence, blogging, and email marketing, for example -- as part of our professional development as artists. At one of my first meetings, I received positive feedback on the design, content and name of my website.  The group consensus was that the name, Southwest Abstractions, is strong because it accurately describes my work. One suggestion for creating more awareness of my site and work was to add a blog element.  My first thought was, "But what do I have to say that would interest other artists?"  After further reflection, I've decided to organize a series of posts by topic: Art Techniques, Art Tools and Resources, and Art and Artists that Inspire.  I look forward to your feedback and the opportunity to share our ideas.
