Painted Canvas Website Make-over

Finally! Our Painted Canvas website has undergone some major "cosmetic surgery"!

After hours of intensive hard work our brand new, bright and colourful website is online with a freshness like the morning dew on a new spring day. I am so poetic about this, but I am so excited about the new look. It just adds to all the new and exciting ideas we have for our creative careers. I don't know about you, but I am excited about next year. I believe it is going to be the best year of my life so far!

Here is the link to the website:
Painted Canvas.

You can bookmark it as one of your favourites and there is a Facebook button on the home page that you can click if you like it.

Other news is that we are on a roll with our commissions. We have already finished about 16 of the 33 commissions we have received after the exhibition and last night we have received 6 more commissions, 3 for me and 3 for Simonette.

I have just realised during the last few months how true these words are:
"Where there is focus, there is expansion."

Enjoy our new website!

Cacti and succulents - small paintings

Its been a while since my last post. I have been very busy with all my commissions. It seems that a lifelong dream is finally making its way towards reality. That dream has always been to make and create art, not only as a hobby but as a way of life and living.

I do not know all the answers - I do not even know all the questions! - I do not know all the secrets of famous artists, but I have learned a few things:
  • Two is better than one- the wise Solomon has told us that many moons ago! Since Simonette and I have joined forces, both our careers have seen tremendous growth.
  • Technology should be used - how else will be able to show our work to so many people all around the world.
  • Facebook has a purpose - I think we all know how important networking is.
I also believe that our fortune is just God's way of rewarding hard work. And for those who don't know it - painting is hard work! But I love every minute of it!

Two of my commissions consisted of 11 small cacti and succulent paintings. People really seem to like this a lot.
Here is a pic of the whole lot of them together.
