If you look over there to the right, you will see that I have added a newsletter subscription widget.  I have never had the courage to have a newsletter.  I say courage because I find it challenging to think about sending out a newsletter.  I personally do not care to receive them.  Why?  Well, I like to get my info about the people I like via facebook/blogs and friendly emails.  I get enough emails as it is and newsletters never feel personal.  I need personal.  The one person who sends out a newsletter that I find entertaining is Kelly Moore, he is an outsider artist who keeps it interesting, you never know what you will see/read in his newsletters and even then I usually just click to his website and see whats going on rather than read the newsletter.  I realize I am probably not the norm though.  

I think a few years ago I tried to do the newsletter thing and just bailed.  I never believed that anyone was interested in reading my blather.  Truth be told I did blather.  Now that I am making my living primarily online via etsy instead of galleries, I'd like to think I have more online friends and followers who just might be interested.  I know I have slowed my blogging WAY down and while I use my facebook fan page alot, there isn't really much 'news' there.  So I'm gonna give it another try.  Most probably it will start off one way and morph into another way.  My plan is to send out a newsletter once a month but with no set date.  My goal at the moment is to include links/pictures of works I have available and any interesting news/tidbits about my art world happenings.  I will try to keep it interesting and wont be offended if you unsubscribe.  I am using a free sign up widget and should you desire to unsubscribe at any point I suggest replying to my newsletter with 'unsubscribe' in the subject.  I would much rather you do that than keep subscribing if you feel you don't want updates anymore.  believe me, i get it!

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…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
