The WordPress Change…

I just saved a bunch of money by switching to WORDPRESS!  OK, advertisement over.  I’ve had the wordpress blog for a while now in addition to my website, but, 2 things:

1.  I’ve been paying a lot of money for the website –silly really.  I don’t know the HTML stuff, and needed something simple to put a website together and so I was using WIX.  It was easy, and expensive, especially when you consider I was making no money off the site.

2.  I don’t update either my blog or my website as often as I should.  The proof is the date of my last post here  –it’s basically been a year.

SO, going with the cheaper deal, here I am, like so many others, on WordPress!  Not dissing WP though.  I’ve just got a lot to learn to really make it do what I’d like.

As I said, basically a year since my last post here.  Geesh.  2013 hasn’t been an amazing year for me, artistically.  I sold some pieces (actually more than I ever had before, mind you, they were small, cheap pieces but still), and I made some new work (the least I’ve made since 2007), but I kinda stayed out of the scene, so to say.  Ah, but life continued on, that’s for sure.  The biggest change 2013 sent me was having to find a new place to live, and dealing with what that means for me  —After living in the same place for 8 years, you could say I was “settled in”, so, 3 months in, you could say I’m still “unsettled”.

Still, art must be made, and like I said, here it is, basically a year later—

THE BIG 400!  December 14th, 2013!  Same deal as last year, only bigger —The fine folks at People’s Gallery round up a big ol buncha artists of all shapes, sizes, ages, and skill levels (the “400”, which, as usual, is actually more than the number stated –last I heard, over 600 people participating), give them wood panels to make art on, and, around 2 months later, taah-daah, we got a gigantic show with lots of awesome work that you pull off the wall and buy for $40 a piece!  Phew!  Yeah, I’m doing that.  See you there, and don’t forget to bring a can of food (or two) for the Oregon Foodbank.big-400-poster-web

Here’s a few of my BIG 400 entriesLarry Christensen_Untitled
