Welcome to my new art blog! I’m finally moved into the new digs and boy what a change. I hope you find the blog much more user friendly. The top navigation bar & sidebar icons will help you easily find all the content I have to offer, from supply reviews to my portfolio. I’ll be opening a store soon where you’ll be able to get a hold of postcards of my work and in the New Year I hope to offer both prints and originals. In the new year I’ll also be starting to produce little videos to give you a glimpse into how I make my art.
I’d love it if you would follow me on Instagram (content coming soon) and SUBSCRIBE to this blog. There are lots of benefits to subscribing. Not only will you get all my posts right to your inbox but you’ll be the first to learn about new art offerings and GIVEAWAYS. Yes, I’ll be doing giveaways (starting this weekend!) so I encourage you to think about subscribing. Only subscribers will be able to join in on all the swag. (HINT: There will be paper, brushes, palettes and even paint involved in the giveaways!) I also have a few branded products that I’ll be offering, would you like to have a bee magnet? What about a new bee mug like the one above?
Anyway, take some time to look around and make yourself comfortable. I have many, many blog posts planned so there’ll be new content nearly everyday for a few weeks at least. First up, I will be finishing the reviews on all things TONED PAPER. There are two reviews already up (Global Art, Fabriano) but tomorrow I’ll review Hahnemühle’s Grey Book then Strathmore’s toned paper journal & tiles and finally Stillman & Birn’s new Nova series sketchbooks. It’s gonna be a busy few months. I can’t believe it’s only about six weeks until Christmas. I’ll try to give you some suggestions on just what the fashionable artist may want in his or her stocking. See you soon. I’m so glad you’ve come to participate on my new blog. I’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
For your further information (if you’re an artist AND a reader):
You’ll also be able to go and read all about books and book reviews on my new book blog:
Next Book In Your Hand
Finally, I have a new overarching website at JenniferMcLean.com where you will find links to both blogs. If you want to keep up with both my art and the books I read then I thought a landing page that you could bookmark might make it easier to find me. You’re welcome. ;o)
