SS: 004 Saturday in the Studio

Hello readers, In the last post I wrote about how I start developing my ideas for a painting. At the end of the post I hinted at more information on how I begin working with images. I will be posting a blog about the next part in that topic sometime this week or next weekend at the latest.

HI, First I want to say thanks for checking out my website! I've been wanting to make a dedicated blog for media, news, and behind-the-scenes material for a few months now. Seeing as how this is the first post and I just created the blog; I havent prepared an in-depth post. Therefore, I'll use this chance to ask what my readers are interested in reading about in this blog. I want to try my best to share an entry at least 5 days a week, if not 7! I'll start the next one on Monday January 18, 2016. Please send suggestions to - h.acuna45@gmail.com. Thanks, - Hector
