Here is my first testimonial video from Dave Chandoo, someone who bought a piece of my art who lives locally so I went to his house to do the video. Then my husband Gary, Dave and I went out to dinner at a yummy mexican restaurant.
The angel painting Dave bought is a painting of the Angel of the Lord watching over the universe. If you are interested in the painting process the background is poured and the foreground is painted on over the acrylic pour after it dried.
Although I have had a lot of clients in the past from previous sales it has been hard to be able to contact them because of rules on the sites I have sold off of it is only now that I am asking anyone to share. If you have purchased a painting from me in the past or from a site I have sold from please contact me if you are able to share a short testimonial video with the art piece and what you like about it to put on my website. I would greatly appreciate your help! My email is email@example.com or you may also contact me via facebook at my Facebook page Jane Schleppenbach Art.
Ok here is my first art demo. It is of a painting I have reworked using acrylic pour. After it dried I decided to add some lighter paint to add more contrast. It came out as a stalactite stalagmite painting. I'm hoping to improve my video making skills over time and was hoping to speed it up but when I put it to 1.5 in the program I don't think it sped up :( but I am determined to learn. Here is the finished painting! The picture has some glare on it because of the glossy finish. The top part dark parts are actually darker.
Just changing my website theme today. Also need to add some more paintings in the shop. Later I get to go swimming in Soap Lake where there is mineral water! Can't wait to get in that relaxing water...
Going through a great time of creativity spurting and am learning to be a bit more disciplined in painting regularly, keeping up on making connections and being encouraged in my spiritual life. What are your experiences lately in these areas? I hope you are being encouraged.
Ok now what is new here? So far I only have about 10 or so of my paintings added to the shop section but a lot more in the Art Slideshow and Gallery section. Will continue to work on this even though I don't know if anyone has read my blog here yet. Just finished my first larger totally abstract painting. Or at least I think it is finished. It started out as an acrylic pour painting but I decided to add a yellow glaze over it to unify the colors and brighten it up. Hopefully the painting feels calming making you want to fall into some pleasant dreams.
So this is what it is like to create a professional art website... exciting! But there are a lot of things to figure out and consider like how to make it the most user friendly for you for one. The technical stuff takes a lot of time and effort. Then there is the creative side. So many decisions for me to make even about which artwork to list first since I have hundreds of paintings and images. It will all take a lot more time than I originally thought but it will be worth it I am sure. Don't forget to ask me if there is something I have missed that you are interested in so I can work on that first and please check back for updates! I am really looking forward to getting to know you better. Be sure to bookmark this page for updates!
Welcome to my art blog! My name is Jane Schleppenbach. I would like to share with you and encourage you in your own creativity as I share my journey with you. I have taken many college art classes and also learn from videos, magazines and my own experimentation. Hopefully, we can share each other's experiences in art and creativity for mutual encouragement. I have been painting for many years and have sold a lot of my work online, at art fairs and to private parties across the US and some overseas but am always open to positive improvement and love to explore new areas. I am really looking forward to interact with you here and get to know you. Feel free to comment!
