Having trouble preparing images of your art for submission to art shows & print media? Artist Norm Rossignol told me about some challenges he’d been having, and after we got that all worked out, he suggested that I offer another workshop as there are still many artists in the Rogue Valley having problems editing their images effectively. I agreed, and we decided on a maximum of 10 participants. I will do my best to accommodate any overflow; if very many more than 10 people desire to register, I’ll add a second date.
Let me show you how to adjust your photos in Photoshop/Elements so you can submit images that show your art at its best! Understanding web vs. print resolution and how to change them, resizing and changing canvas size as opposed to image size, metadata and more… There will be plenty of helpful information for everyone. If you want to do some practicing as I demonstrate, bring your laptop, but you can still take notes that will help you when you get home to your PC.
Please plan to join me on Monday, August 12 from 1-3pm
No prior experience required, but it will be most helpful if you do know how to find, open and find your way around Photoshop or Photoshop Elements without too much assistance.
For more info & to register, contact Hannah at 541.899.2012 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Norm Rossignol at email@example.com. My availability will be limited now through July 31, and I will be out of my office from August 1 through 4. If you can’t reach me, please contact Norm.
I am delighted to have finished a website for Norm Rossignol at www.normrossignolart.com! I was already acquainted with Norm as he had a listing on www.soartists.com, the site I created to promote the art community of southern Oregon, and am happy to know him much better after meeting with him and working on his website. It’s amazing how much this endeavor can show you about a person – some clients have even said they learned much they didn’t know about themselves through the process!
Norm is a plein air painter, which means he paints outdoors, on location. He is very supportive of his fellow plein air artists, to the point that he co-founded the Plein Air Society of Southern Oregon (or PASSO) to enourage and coordinate regular paintings sessions “en plein air” with both new and experienced artists. His watercolors are beautiful, and he has taught watercolor painting at ScrappyCraft in Phoenix, Oregon for the past three years. He’s now taking a break from teaching and watercolors to renew his focus on another love – pastels – and they are just stunning! He is also a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and The Pastel Society of Oregon, and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists, as well as additional plein air-focused groups.
Norm is a kind, energetic and engaging man. I can see why his classes were popular! His wife is an avid horsewoman and he enjoys videotaping her weekly riding lessons on Gabriel, her handsome Haflinger. He’s not timid when it comes to trying new things, something I learned when he dived in almost immediately to create his first post his his brand new blog! I hope everyone in the SO art community and all who love plein air painting and landscapes will follow his blog as it promises to be entertaining and informative, not to mention lovely, as I’m sure he will illustrate his posts with images of his work.
Norm was kind enough to write this recommendation for me, which I just received this morning:
Wanting my very own web site seemed so daunting to me that I put it off for years. I envied those who had a site and maintained it on their own. Then there’s the need to ensure your images are protected properly from being copied.
Hannah West has been managing SOAR for some time now and I have seen that site do wonderful things for artists. One of the things that stood out from Hannah’s work is “She has your back.” Not only builds a beautiful site but all your work is safe. Another feature I needed was a Point and Shoot style operation and Hannah has a designed system that is just that easy. Most webmasters can build a web site that is just fine, but a web site made especially for artists is another matter. Hannah being an artist herself has that insight needed to develop a tasteful and easy site to display and use. I am most grateful to Hannah for her hard work and dedication to developing my site.
