Yes, the blog is different. I've updated the color scheme to reflect the overhaul of my web site. The web site isn't ready for launch yet, but it will be eventually. It's something I've been working on for years - converting it to the Wordpress platform. It's slow going because there is a lot of material to transfer, so I work on it in fits and starts. The beta version is accessible, if you'd like to see it here. Today I decided to come up with a different header for the new web site. I wanted to use the same header for the blog, and that required an update to the color scheme. So there you have it and now you see it.
In other news, I applied for membership to Women Artists of the West (WAOW) and was accepted. I'm now an Associate member.
I'm gearing up for the first of two fall open studios this weekend. #1 is the Newcastle Art Studios Tour (October 12/13), #2 is the Autumn Art Studios Tour (November 8 - 10). My studio is full of art and just needs a good vacuuming to get rid of assorted insects and cobwebs.
The bison you see in the header is a new scratchboard drawing. I created "Call of the Prairie" for our Newcastle Tour's preview show, which is on display through the Tour weekend at Lone Buffalo Vineyards. I scanned the bison in various stages as I worked on it, you can see those images in my WIP (work in progress) album on Facebook. Scroll down to the bottom of the album. Donna Ridgeway provided the terrific photo I used for reference.
