Christmas is done, the tree ornaments are stashed away, and guess what is right around the corner! Super bowl! and Valentines. More about one of these later, but for right now, lets get started on this months electronic magazine.

New demonstration

One of the things I have strived to include are demonstrations. It's one of my "pitches" for folks to sign up to the e-zine for. Between painting and developing other information for the website, this area has been neglected, so, with a painting deadline looming, I decided to photograph the process at the same time. This wonderful demonstration will show you how to create a rush order should you have a customer that really needs to cover that hole the house painter put in the kitchen wall whilst moving the ladder! It's found in the demonstration "On my easel" part of the site.

Landscape section article added

Are you a beginner, and would like to approach landscape painting. I've got an answer for you here, and yes, you will be surprised I have used this technique! It aien't just for beginners baby!

Jewels from "Your Paintings"

Now I've done some checking up in the "Your Paintings" section and found a few more jewels that I'd like to point out to you. Now these are folks with various painting experience, but what is astounding is these paintings are of their first few using this technique. Now, if you're able to produce work this well right out of the gate, imagine where your art is gonna take you! I am so honored that folks respond with their work, and I really enjoy sharing this with you so that you don't miss out.

Marketing your art update

Now this is really exciting. Remember the series of articles about producing your art brochure, and getting into the gallery of your dreams. That I thought I might crash and burn? Check out the link to see some great news. Another Gallery Invite

FAQ Page creation!

I was checking on my email files and found this particular folder simply bulging! So I've put just a few up here, and will continue to add to the section as time permits. Got a question, type it in, if the answer is found on the site, you've saved yourself some time hunting! There are no bad questions, so if you have one, drop me line. If it's a really good one, (and most are) I'll get it to this page. FAQ page up and running!

Cool Stuff

Do you think you may be color blind? How about your ability to see minute differences in the shades/hue of a color? This link will test that ability. The lower your score, the better you can see. The higher your score, the more you will need to train your eyes to see subtle changes in color hue.

Color Testing that is amazing.

And while cyber space hunting, I've found a wonderful site on a subject that, well, you just gotta see it to believe it....
It's tucked away in the articles section.

Body Art,

Now, for those that are American Football fans, the Superbowl is fastly approaching, but lest you forget, so is a very, very important holiday. And if you forget it, like me most years, you'll be sleepin with the dogs on the back porch until you make up! Get your significant other a great gift, a yellow rose! and include this along with it! Especially if they love art!

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!
