What’s shakin’ at Rodzart 7-17-2009

OK I confess, it’s been a ridiculously long time since I’ve done a Blog entry. I have no excuse, other than to say that time gets away from me sometimes. I’ll try to do better though.

Now to catch up a little. I lost my j-o-b back in April, although I can’t say as I was too disappointed walk out of there.
That job was rotting my brain, and I was really getting fed up with the arrogant and abusive bosses in that company.
As most of you know, I’ll bet, when times are hard, bosses think that they can do anything they want to you, and you’ll just meekly take it because you have no other prospects. Well you can only take that kind of crap for so long, before it becomes too much. By the time I got out of there I was drinking my way into alcoholism, my blood pressure was astronomical and my diabetes was completely out of control. No j-o-b is worth dieing for. Rant complete.

Since then, rather than thinking of it as unemployment, I see this as a chance to realize me dram of many many years, to paint full time. So Jack, Fred (the watch gecko) and I have been in the studio almost every day, painting like crazy.
If you haven’t looked at the abstract gallery lately, take a peek, there’s a lot of new stuff in there. In addition to painting, I’m hoping to redesign my web site a little. It’s fallen a bit behind the times. I plan to keep painting Oils, and Acrylic, but I’m also going to do some paintings in gouache on watercolor paper, and some ACEO’s.

My original paintings are still available through the website http://www.rodzart.com , or at auction at http://www.artbyus.com/auctions.php?a=6&b=85. I just set up a store on Etsy too. Http://rodzart.etsy.com . I’m planning to offer an original painting on canvas occasionally, but primarily I’ll be listing works on paper, and ACEO.

I’m very proud to say that I’ve been listed on the website Abstract Artist.com http://www.abstractartist.com/index.html a site that specializes in the promotion of abstract art.
To be listed on the same page as Jackson Pollock is an indescribable thrill!

In addition, you can buy prints of my paintings, and also cups, t-shirts, mouse pads and other neat stuff with my paintings on them at http://www.artwanted.com/rodzart I’m also affiliated now with DedviantArt which is at http://rodzart2.deviantart.com/gallery/ . I’m also very happy to now be affiliated with Fine Art America, a print on demand site offering some very nice printing and framing services. My address there is http://rod-schneider.fineartamerica.com . So I hope everyone will help stimulate the economy and buy something.

That’s about it for this week. I promise I’ll try to be a little more conscientious with the blog in the future. So, everybody have a great weekend, and I’ll write more next week.
