www.artbykarie-ann.co.uk/blogs/

Apologies to all of you who read this and say...'not again'. However this is the last time I promise. As part of my new year goals for my art I did say I wanted to become more internet savvy and I've finally conquered Wordpress. I've uploaded it and it's working so for the last time ladies and gentlemen please update your bookmarks and visit www.artbykarie-ann.co.uk/blogs/ for the latest news. I've moved this blog over to it completely so nothing is missing and thankfully all of your wonderful comments took a ride over there too. It was quite hard work, I know nothing - or knew I can now say proudly, of what I was doing at the time, uploading Wordpress, designing my website (yes that's had an overhaul too) plus my blog was too big to import in one part so I had to find out how to break it down as Blogger wouldn't let me give access to Wordpress to copy it over for me, I had to do it all manually. It's quite taxing on the brain to learn so many things at once and I did get a little internet drunk at one point and lost the plot a little but starting again was the way to go and finally I got there all on my own too (big pat on the back for me from myself of course) so let me know what you think! I'm also hoping you can click on the title and be taken to my new blog directly so you don't get lost in cyberspace!

Animal Portraits, Jimmy


This is Jimmy's portrait almost finished now. This is to be framed so I may have to remove add some of the cushion to fit it nicely into a mount and frame. It is pretty awful trying to take photos with the poor lighting (I know I keep on about it) but my new daylight bulb isn't really too good. I did have a rather expensive one before which I managed to smash with my head when I leant over to pick up something and ended up with bits in my hair so I bought another version but they aren't a patch on the first type so now I have an internet search on to get the same brand again!
Talking of art problems, my electric pencil sharpener has just about bitten the dust, I stupidly decided to sharpen a pastel pencil and it just destroyed it. oh well more shopping to do! And as I'm online I may as well order some replacement pencils, this ingres paper is eating up my pencils so fast I'm reduced to stubs of some!!!
I've also made a fantastic start with Bonnie's portrait and provided the light is better than today, I should be able to post an update tomorrow (I may well post a quick update on Facebook so do look on there if you want a sneak preview)
