New Look

Maybe you noticed that I finally got around to putting my links and info up on the side of my blog instead of at the bottom. I was lazy and afraid that I would lose my links and info. Joanna said she would help, to make sure of success, but we have been busy and when she comes to visit ... we visit. I finally just changed templates and it did work easily and I am happy with the style. I may still streamline a little and move things around.
I have been planning the change since Blogger was updated, but you know the procrastinator that I am. Well, about a week ago, Nancy Moskovitz and I were discussing (via e-mail) ways to market our art and she mentioned my blog template. Thanks to Nancy I decided to just do it and ,if I had to post everything again, I would. As you see it worked!

Nancy's blog has been updated recently as well as some new additions on her web page, including a new store. I recommend you check it out and also my store, you might see something you like. Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I will be adding new items to my shop, so check back soon. I'm on a roll......

This painting is a scene near La Paz, Bolivia, where we lived two different times. Bolivia is near and dear to my heart, but so far away in miles. It is like my second home. I love the people, countryside and ambiance. Oh, and you know I would like the food. I miss maraquetas, the everyday street bread. So wonderful. Somehow I had missed putting this on my website, so another of my chores accomplished.

Great painting, Jo - the colors and height are wonderful! And your page looks really good. Is this what you worked on while grand-dog sitting? :-)

Joan said...

This is a lovely painting, Jo. It really tells a story about life in Bolivia. I like the new setup for your blog. Looks good!

Jo Castillo said...

Regina, thank you. This painting is from 2006 I think. I updated the blog at night. While grand-dog sitting I didn't do much as I was holding him much of the time, so golf on TV had to suffice. I did work on e-mail and such when I wasn't holding him. :)

Jo Castillo said...

Thank you, Joan. Bolivia is a wonderful place. Thanks about the blog, too.

I like the new blog look.

Joanna said...

Nice template change!

Jo Castillo said...

Leslie, Thank you. Simple is good, I think.

Jo Castillo said...

Joanna, Thanks, I knew if it all disappeared you would help me fix it, right?

I love this painting. How wonderful it must have been to be able to live in such a unique place. I imagine it was very inspiring. :)

Jo Castillo said...

Kasie, you are so right. I actually started really painting regularly there. Before it was once in a blue moon. I actually displayed my work at the Embassy. Nice.
