subscriptions

Not sure why, but my subscription sign up on my new blog/website ( http://www.manninglewisstudios.com ) is actually signing people up for this old blog/website. For those of you who have subscribed, please be patient as I figure out what the heck is going on! Thanks also for subscribing to my blog!

www.paulamanninglewis.com

The new website/blog is just about done and looking pretty good. I even have my own domain name (or two, FINALLY!) www.paulamanninglewis.com and www.manninglewisstudios.com Two domains, same website. So, you can get there either way. It is a much easier site to navigate. I'm still working on getting my prints page done. New print images are currently being designed. Once I figure out which ones will be discontinued you will have several to choose from on the Clearance Page and until the end of February, you can see and/or buy several older paintings on the Clearance Page as well. These are some of my first of the Spiral Abstract Series, some are my absolute favorites.

I'm still having issues getting the subscription link to work on the new blog, but I will let you know as soon as it is fixed.

New Blog/website

I am currently working on switching my blog and website over to wordpress. You can find my new blog HERE.

I am combining my blog and website in one place at wordpress, it's just so much easier to manage. Plus I like it better than blogger!

I am still working on it, but please change your links and bookmarks because it won't be long before this blog is history! Thank you to everyone that checks in here on a regular basis! I can hardly believe it's been almost 4 years since I started this blog. Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' in to the future!

I was tagged

Ok, so I don't usually participate in these, but since it's Saturday and I was tagged by one of my favorite artist bloggers, Jessica Torrant, I figured I'd play along.

the rules:link to the person who tagged you > post the rules on your blog > write six random things about yourself > tag six people at the end of your post and link to them > let each person know they've been tagged

1. I was on the swim team in high school, always loved swimming in fact. Started swimming when I was 9 months old in the Atlantic ocean.

2. I was terribly shy as a kid. No one ever believes me when I tell them this, since I'm such a loudmouth now! When I was in elementary school I was picked on excessively, which made me afraid to make new friends or even talk to anyone new.

3. I lived in Hawaii for 8 months when I was 17. My first husband( I married for the first time at 16!) was in the army so he was stationed there. It was not as great as most people would think. My favorite bumper sticker when I was there was "Just another shitty day in paradise". Hawaii is no fun when you are poor!

4. I owned a frame shop in Las Cruces, NM for a grand total of 2 months! I left my first husband and lost everything because of or shortly after the divorce.

5. I am deathly allergic to cats, I can be in a house with cats for about 15 minutes before I start wheezing, my eyes swell up and my nose and throat get tight and constricted. This is the main reason that I am a dog person.

6. I LOVE to sing! I sing aloud in the car, the shower, while I paint, anytime really!

I'm tagging the following people

Raine Klover
Susan See
Jafabrit
Cynthia Guajardo
Carol Adamec
Angela Taylor

Time Management

Painting in Progress, oil on canvas, 48" square
Detail

I've been working on this current painting for almost a month now?! I need to work on my time management! I haven't spent as much time painting as I would like so far this year. I know, it's only been a week! So much going on with the gallery, business planning, studio management, website updates, etc, etc. Excuses, excuses! Now that the business plan is essentially done, I should be able to get back on track with my painting/working schedule. I hope to have this painting finished by next week.

Lots going on here at Chroma Studios Gallery, check out the Chroma website for more information.
