I've got some great new pages to tell you about, but I'm gonna also tell you about whats coming in next months edition. Why tell you now, when I haven't even got to this months new stuff yet?

Well, I figured out how to make a clickable table of contents, so it's alot easier to move around the ezine, (not that its that long) but as time goes by and more information is placed here, it just made sense to me to get this feature working for you.

I'm also excited over whats coming up next month, and want to get that in here right away.

Next month will include 4 new demonstrations, and they will be on a password protected page. Keep your eyes opened for these as only my subscribers will see these demonstrations! And maybe a short video demo if I can get the thing edited!

Now on to the rest of this months e-zine!

Still life art, beyond just fruits and flowers

So you're tired of painting just fruits and flowers? This article will prime your pump for an unending supply of ideas, with not only different things you can do with fruits and flowers, but we get into formats, yard-sales, and all sorts of fun things to paint.

Beyond Fruits and Flowers, unleashing the power of your imagination

Choosing a digital camera. Choosing a digital camera is not that difficult, but there are some very important things to look for when you get ready to go shopping.

In part 1 of this 2 part article, I discuss the minimum requirements and why you need them when using a camera for your reference material. Using a camera is an important and powerful tool, so using your dollars wisely will help you get the most bang for your buck.

Choosing a digital camera

Which digital camera features is the 2nd part of this information on specific features you will need to have on that digital camera to help you in promoting your work. As an oil painter, there are some things you will need that other artist need not worry about. Click below to see this part 2 of my information on digital camera's.

Which digital camera features are best for the artist

Video info update I've gotten 2 filming sessions under my belt. I've also located some great music to add to the video. Now it's time to begin editing. These are short clips on artist practices that will be tied into the main video. It's just part of my video learning curve. These, when ready, will be available on the password protected page also. Keep your fingers crossed that editing will go smoothly for me in the next weeks, and maybe I'll get these up by the next e-zine posting!

These really are superb giclee prints!

I'm now on Twitter! I find that if you reply to me rather then direct message (DM), I'll be able to find you easier. I get so much spam these days, I rarely check my direct messages in twitter any longer.

You can follow me, and I'll follow you back, but do reply to me that you are following so's I can follow you back! just tweet an "@delmus" in your tweet box!

Follow me on Twitter

Well I hope the information was useful to you. Future ezines will be in a similar format, just different information.

Let me know what you think! Have I helped you in any way? Twitter me, or drop me an email. I would love to see some of your work!

Till next time!

This is Delmus Phelps wishing you a happy painting day!
