The first thing I want to share is that I finally created a website! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. Because of my tight budget, I decided to use Weebly. It is a free website but I chose to upgrade to Pro. This gave me my own domain name. I have read many opinions on weather or not to add prices to your art on your website. Some say galleries do not like this if you are using your website as a portfolio. Others say if prices are not listed, buyers go elsewhere. Since I have not approached any galleries yet, I chose to add the prices. I think when I am ready to approach a gallery, I will make a separate portfolio. I welcome any opinions on this subject. I added a website button to the top of my blog, or here is the link: Donna Holdsworth Art.
I have also been going through some computer issues. My brother finally came over & to make a long story short, my monitor went to the happy hunting ground. I am using my spare monitor but the resolution is not the same, even after multiple adjustments. The image of my new painting is close, but for me it is a pinch too red.
The "Yangtze River" painting was inspired by a book that I read when I was young. It is "The Story About Ping" by Marjorie Flack. I love this story. It is a happy memory for me. This painting is done on 18x24 traditional stretched canvas. It is painted in acrylic. It is available for purchase on my website. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for visiting my blog!
