newsletter: take II

did i make that newsletter sound fun!!!!????
no.
hours later i'm getting my trickle of subscribers and thinking it is SO typical of me to do something and as i fear it or am unsure of it, i dont give it the excitement and oomph it deserves.
so here, i'm giving myself another chance:

I am creating a newsletter!  I have taken it for granted that people can find out what is going on with me on facebook.  I have many artist friends on facebook as well as my fan page.  I'm in touch with a lot of people on etsy as well and never gave much thought to sending a newsletter out so you can find out more about my world, my art without having to track me down online.  It is obvious there are plenty of people who still haven't embraced facebook.  Many don't use etsy convo's.  The list goes on.  Heck I can't even keep track of all these sites sometimes.

Having said that, I'm going to give a monthly newsletter a shot.  I plan on sharing things there that aren't already here.  You can get glimpses of my world, I will try to include photos of what I am working on, perhaps new work that you might not have seen with links as well.  Hopefully it will be a more intimate and interesting take of what it is I do nearly day in and day out.  I will try to write one every month. Sometimes I will also highlight other artists as well, I really believe in the power of artists sharing their love of what other artist's do.  It is how we get inspired is it not?

So, I invite you to join my newsletter. You can sign up by entering your email address in the box just under my profile info on the sidebar.  I look forward to writing my first one soon as I get at least 10 subscribers ...hahaha i have such low expectations dont i?

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
