Happily some of my delinquency is due to a great painting trip to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino with artist friends for about the 5th or 6th year in a row. This time our luck finally ran out and we had mostly challenging weather, but that didn't seem to dampen anyone's spirits ... athough other parts might have gotten more than dampened! It was a good trip. I look forward to next year.
Unfortunately as soon as I returned from Ft. Bragg I had some health problems which required a little recovery time. I tried to put that time to good use by beginning work on a new website! Within the next two weeks I will have brucehancockart.com up and running with any luck. The new site will combine my art gallery and blog into one interconnected entity. It will also provide many tools for promoting and selling my work. My gallery is currently at brucehancockfineart.com and my blog is currently on the blogger platform, which is where you are if you are reading this. Both have provided yeoman service for several years but it's time to move into something that allows me to display, promote and sell my art more effectively. In the near future when you try to log into either of my current sites, you will be redirected to my new location. I hope to see you there!!
Meanwhile, here are two of my plein air paintings from the Ft. Bragg paint-out.
