Several years ago (2006) I took a portrait painting class over the weekend with Steve Barry and I worked on this piece, put it away and found it again. I had painted on too much blue eye shadow in a fit of intuitive color choices so I removed some, changed the background from a rust to a red, got it too red, liked the Southwest rust better, so reworked it so I could get some color variation and signed it. (No wrinkles, no glasses, no problem). I used it on my home page of my updated web site Nancy Standlee . I love the hat and it does make a statement. The brim is so large it causes single file walking.
This is like a professional "online Rolodex" to keep track of your colleagues and art friends, make new connections and send out announcements. I've spent most of the day getting my profile set up, adding applications and deleting them and trying something else and posted a weak little "We're woking on a zebra collaboration".
If you are on LinkedIn, let's connect. I'm still learning how this social network is constructed and may not have enough time to update often but the idea is appealing to connect with other artists. I've joined a Professional Fine Art Group and several others and an alumni group from Tarleton State University. So you're invited to view my web site and join me on LinkedIn. Tomorrow I need to check out Facebook and Twitter and I need a housekeeper to wash the dishes. My online social life is taking all of my time.
