I’m honored to have this painting heading to Washington to hang in the office of Senator Angus King. I first met Angus soon after moving to Maine 10 years ago, and I’m proud to have him representing Maine. I’m happy to have one of my paintings in his office to remind him of home.
I also want to mention a new facebook page I’m starting for Colin Page Paintings. I have been using my personal facebook page to promote my work for the last few years, and it seems like it’s time to separate my business life from my personal life. I welcome all of you to like the facebook page for Colin Page Paintings. I am going to try to limit my personal page to friends and family and make it a bit more private. I hope you all understand my desire to keep these things separate.
Also, there is a new poll question up, which I’m really curious about. Please do cast your vote on this one. I want to know how many of you have bought a painting online. I’ll share more of my own experiences with online sales after this poll runs its course. For now, I just want to see the results.
The old poll was just a silly one asking, “what do you most look forward to about the summer?” The results were, 40% longer days, 25% comfortable plein air painting, 13% swimming, 8% playing outside, 7% gardening, and 6% driving with the windows down. This is out of a total of 95 votes.
