There is a place. Like no place on Earth.

A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger!

Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter.

Which luckily I am.

Numbers Game

Developing a fan base is a numbers game. If you throw enough stuff at the wall, something is bound to stick!

Typical marketing reach is you need to touch a prospect at least 3-10 before they even think about buying your stuff. Reality is more like 25 times before they take action.

If you're my friend, it's OK not to LIKE my Facebook Fan Page, but I will be eternally grateful if you SHARE my link with all your friends.

You see, it's all a numbers game, the more people I can reach, the quicker I find my fan base.

I don't need Everyone to LIKE my work, I just need a few people who love it enough to buy it or share it with their friends.

 Please help me reach my audience. I don't know where they are! They aren't sporting tattoos on their foreheads saying I love Hand Painted Photography. There are no neon lights over their heads flashing Art Lover.  My only chance of reaching them is with your help. Please share the links to my Facebook website and my website with all your friends.

Who I Want to Reach:
Gallery Curators & Owners
Interior Designers & Decorators
Art Consultants
Corporate Art Buyers
Art Lovers
People that like pretty places

If you know someone from the list above, I would really be grateful for an introduction.

Thank you for your support. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. I hope you can also take the time to promote other American Artists.

I get by with a little help from my friends,
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends,
With a little help from my friends.

Elysian Fields

New Opening Reception Date!

Due to conflict with the PGA Seniors Tournament, the opening of the Low Tides & Bucolic Daze exhibit at the Hillman Center for Performing Arts has be rescheduled to: 

Thursday, July 11, from 7pm - 9pm

Hopewell Rocks

 You see, The Fox Chapel Country Club is hosting the 2013 PGA Seniors Tournament. The Hillman Center is across the street from the club and much of the parking is needed for the PGA. Couple that with limited access to Fox Chapel Road and you have a nightmare. And to be quite honest, I would like to have some warm bodies show up for the opening!

The exhibit will be unofficially open for viewing if you want to take a break from the Tournament and wander across the street to the Hillman Center.

If you are attending the Seniors, you'll find me trailing Freddie Couples, Mark Calcavecchia (although Brenda is really my hero here!) and of course Greg The Shark Norman.

No Time to be Verklempt! Too much to do. Framing, Press Release, Postcards, Catalog.

Extra Special Thanks to Mark Panza, Framer Extraordinaire!( Be sure to visit his website  Without his expertise I would not be able to get it done!
