New website - up and running

It only took a day of intense focus combined with obsession, followed by several days of rechecking on different web browsers to make sure my new web design was functioning properly. The only glitch I found was on the home page; viewing on the firefox web browser, my signature does not appear correctly. Next week I will meet with tech support in the local Apple store to see if there is something I can do to correct that.

My watercolor palette is fighting with my encaustic palette and I don't know which medium is going to win in my next creative endeavor! I did just order several new encaustic paint colors from Evans Encaustic and I am leaning toward waiting until they arrive before pulling out the torch and electric griddle.

I decided to frame some of the figure studies from last week's watercolor workshop. I am still surprised with my enjoyment from something I had felt such a strong aversion to in the past.

This first painting is the only one not under glass yet, you may notice reflections in the images that are under glass.


  1. Each of this figure pieces is an amazing painting, Robin. Limited palette and hints of form just work beautifully together!

  2. WOW Robin! Your new website is stunning! I loved your other design too-- but I can really appreciate the progression with your new one. It flows really well and showcases your work beautifully.
    Your artist statement is lovely and SO YOU! I think it shows your heart and soul.
    I'm glad to know you Robin.

  3. Thank you, Sherry. Limited palette at times is refreshing.

    Pam, all I can say is, my art (and website/blog) is always a work in progress. I embrace the changes too. Thanks!

  4. Your web site looks great! I need to work on mine. I'm not that great at doing that sort of thing, but can't afford a designer.
    Like your figure studies. They deserved to be framed. Good job on everything!

  5. Nice website--I love how the paintings change as I move my cursor. I really like your figure studies.

  6. Eva, I was obsessed and worked non-stop, more intensely than a web designer could possibly have worked on it because it was all my artwork, which is why I wanted to be able to do everything on my own.

    Hallie, it's the apple software that does that cursor thing. And the figure studies were totally out of my comfort zone, which is why I like them too.
