My First "Real" Newsletter!
is something I've wanted to do for a while and in a case of perfect timing,
I recently received an e-mail from ArtCalendar about e-mail marketing. I did a bit
research to find
the contact management/e-mail program that had the features I needed for a reasonable
cost. I chose to use iContact.
In the past I've done a passable and functional job of sending announcements
and information by using the body of an e-mail. But I've wanted to jazz it up
a bit. iContact provides pre-made newsletter templates and an on-line database
for storing e-mails. I'm comfortable with html coding, so I took the code for
one of their templates and did my own thing with it.
I hope you enjoy the new format.
Because I started from scratch with my e-mail contacts list, a
few of you who had requested to be removed from my e-mail list may have received
this. I apologize
for that - you can unsubscribe via the link at the bottom or contact
me and I'll take care of it promptly.
Moving to Bonanzle
My eBay Store
of all, a big thank you to all my buyers from eBay! I certainly appreciate your
business and support.
I'll continue to list art
on eBay on a regular basis because it still has the
best traffic and I want to maintain a presence there. I'll have fewer
items and they'll either be auction or fixed price listings.
I'm in the process of closing the store though and will have it cleared
out by the end of the month. I've moved that inventory over to Bonanzle.
Although Bonanzle doesn't offer auction style listings, they do offer
a free entry level booth (shop) and have many nice features for
adding and editing listings that makes it very easy for sellers. Although
I haven't purchased anything there yet, by all accounts it's easy for
buyers as well.
||This image shows an assortment of the items that are now available in my Bonanzle
You'll find original art and a selection of items
with reproductions of my work. Other than the magnets,
I make/print the items myself - for
that hand-made touch!
And you can still find my art on Etsy, ArtFire (new
venue), CafePress and Zazzle.
Jack & Red
This is one of my "Paintings
with Petzazz" - in watercolor on Yupo. Jack belongs to a friend and a photo of this image
made its way to me. Jack's owner granted permission for me to
use the photo
for a painting and he has purchased the original. To find out
the story behind this painting and where you can
buy reproductions, please visit my blog.
Keep Up With the Latest
Remember that you can subscribe to my
Blog or just visit it from
time to time to see what I'm up to. I post my latest pet portraits
& other art, event info, photos and other critter-related items.
I'm also planning to offer select pieces of art for sale directly
from the blog.
Because I know we all get too much stuff in our in-boxes,
I don't intend
so the blog is the best way to follow along. I'm also on Twitter,
where you'll find a few short posts nearly every day.
Thank you for your interest in my
work and your support!
