Art Donations

I recently ran across an article on Empty Easel, titled Getting Requests for Artwork Donations?  The article is about what to do if you are asked to donate your artwork. 

I occasionally get requests to donate a piece of artwork to a good cause.  If I believe in the cause, I will donate a small piece.  Art takes time to produce and time is valuable. 

The article goes on to explain that blogging takes time too.  If you have noticed, I haven’t been blogging the last several months.  I will not make excuses but will state the facts.  I had been working on a commissioned piece.  When I work on commission, blogs from me will cease to exist.   I also have a young family that is important to me.  Their needs will be met before blogging can occur.  I would like to be able to blog three days a week, but right now that is not possible with my life schedule.  I also work so most of my artistic energy goes there.

My goal for this summer is to post once or twice a month.   If time allows, I will post more frequently.  I enjoy hearing from each and everyone of you!
