The changes have been slow in coming, but, having overcome a few hurdles, I can finally say the new stuff at soulbearing.com is finally on the horizon.

The first page to get a makeover is the four leaf clover page. There are still a couple of things to add, but I think it is “finished for now”– and with a new product!!

The art pages are more involved, since each painting will have its own page with detail pictures. But, those are on the way– along with more paintings. For now, the “barebones” version is there for existing clients (and for new clients bold enough to purchase a painting from a single photo and basic description).

With much of the reorganization finished and with things better organized now, there are fewer tasks to juggle, so customers should be noticing the reduced handling time and faster shipping, plus more regular blog updates.

Which brings me to another coming change. The current plan is to move the blog to its own domain. I have a domain just sitting there redirecting people to soulbearing.com, and I think it is time to do something else with it. I don’t know how much hassle it is to set up, but “we’ll see”.

There is still a lot of work to do as the focus shifts more toward publicizing, but things seem to be falling into place now. 

Many thanks to the friends, family, clients, and well-wishers who have provided encouragement, guidance, and sustenance during this transition from “mostly hobby” to “mostly livelihood”.


I know; I’m a little late for New Year’s. One friend teased that I am so late, I even missed the Chinese New Year. I hope my readers are having a fab 2012.

I have been preparing the studio and websites (and myself) for another busy year. Some projects have had to wait, but now I am getting back to actual art, after catching up on the mundane business side of things.

For the sake of reclaiming studio space, I will be auctioning some of my art cache over the next month or 2. Like many artists, I have a stash of artwork I finished but haven’t wanted to let go. However, with space being an issue now, and with no room to properly hang and display so many paintings and illustrations, it is time to find good homes for some of the earlier works– some at prices much lower than I normally offer.

Why do I need more space? I’m glad you asked. The current plan is to do a series of larger paintings. Of course, I don’t work for free, because starving as an artist is overrated. So, get your credit cards ready to help support your beloved painter. :-)

For now, there are some of the framed four leaf clovers posted on eBay, in plenty of time for St. Patrick’s Day.

A portion of proceeds is donated to local nonprofit groups. Currently, 10% of my eBay auctions is being donated to Chesapeake Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad; the rest of the proceeds buys supplies and supports the artist, so bid high!

For those readers more interested in the art and photography prints, there have been hundreds of new items added to the soulbearing store on zazzle.com. There are even gallery-wrapped prints on canvas being offered at very reasonable prices, so have a look at soulbearing on zazzle

And, be sure to check soulbearing.com for new art postings in the coming weeks and months.

Thanks for reading, and may good fortune always find you. :-)

Coming soon: an update on what’s coming soon.
