New Website

WOW!  Who would have thought that it would take 3 weeks to put together a website.   In June I learned that my webmaster since 1999, would no longer be able to keep up my website.   She was the best and I really didn't know where to turn.  I had always wanted to make my own changes to my website as I hated bothering her with small events.  I would wait until I had a lot of changes and then it would have to fit in her schedule as I wasn't the only person she did a website for.   So in my quest to look for a new host, I found out I knew nothing about html, domain host sites, IPP, name savers, authorization codes, standard A-records, and that I had to buy a transfer from one host to another because they did not do something that another host needed to transfer my domain.  After lots of money, cancellations from different hosts because they said it was easy to do, and I found out it was not, I decided on Weebly.   User friendly, immediate help Monday through Friday and after purchasing their "Pro" program I could start making some sense out of the mess I had got myself into.   So in saying this, here it is?

I am having a drawing, so please take advantage of not only taking a look at the sight and all I offer as an artist, but fill out the comment form to receive updates and I will put your name in a drawing for a 6 x 8 oil painting head study of your favorite pet.   Drawing is Dec. 1, 2013.

Also, new on the site is a link to my new Zazzle online store.  My new IPad Finger Paintings are now adorning clothing, ties, totes and watches.  What great Christmas ideas.

Nov. 15, I will debut all of my new Christmas card designs using my IPad Finger Paintings.  They will be available through Fine Art America.

"You Tell Him!"

Until next time, Please enjoy the ART!  Terry d. Chacon

Upcoming Studio Tour-   6 local artist will share their creativity in their studios on Dec. 7 and 8, 2013.  We hope you will save the date and come by.  Each artist has something different to offer.  This event is being sponsored by the Redlands Dog Park.
