DIY Websites & Online Portfolios for Artists Workshop

On April 23, I will be offering a 3-hour “Web Presence” workshop for artists at the Creative Arts Center from 6:30-9:30. My course provides an all around understanding of how to get your artist’s profile on the web.  I will be discussing easy-peasy portfolio sites through more complex, but still DIY, website platforms and much more. If you’re an […]

Cantonese Culture

Although the title may suggest that this post is about last summer’s trip to China, in reality, that just didn’t happen. Instead I’m discoursing about my First Monday visit to Canton, Texas, albeit occurring on a Friday afternoon. The little, lethargic town of Canton awakens into a bustling, humongous flea market that persists for 4 […]

A Successful Web Workshop!

After inviting a few artist friends to act as my seminar focus group, and much revamping of my presentation after receiving their insights, I was ready for showtime!

Phew!!

Not only did I wrap up this site (mas o menos), but I plowed on and finished silentgimagery.com and sharonocallaghanshero.com, which were imminently coming up for renewal with another domain and web host. One would think I would take a break, perhaps rest on my laurels. But, no, I committed to teaching a few workshops, […]

The Ice Storm Cometh!

Posted in Blog

In the wee hours of Friday morning, December 6, a bristling storm galloped breathlessly through Dallas.  This ill-tempered weather would have been acceptable–even losing power would have been tolerated–but darn if a couple of our tree limbs didn’t fall from the sky and land on power, land, and cable/internet lines. We love our trees.  They’re […]

Ornamentalia!

Posted in Blog

My first writing on this site, and it’s about ornaments?  “Oh Ho!” she said. A wild hair apparently got me thinking we (yes, I rallied my partner and husband into the fray) that we should make decorative items for the holiday season. Alas, we made it to 49, and actually sold 20 odd ones.  So […]
