Move to a New Host, P&P and More

Moving

Move

After a week of cursing and fighting and some more cursing, I’ve managed to move my site to a new host and point the domain to the right spot.

I’m not sure of I broke anything but I haven’t noticed anything myself. There’s still some tinkering left but nothing big.

If you find anything broken, please let me know.

Painting

Painting has been slow but starting to pick up now. I have two competitions entries to work on so that will take up most of my painting time. I got the Sail Away bust from BrokenToad for one of the contests and I’ll be posting a review soon. I think she’s one of the best cast miniatures I have ever got. It’s going to be fun to work on.

P&P

I’m assuming that most of you knows the site Putty & Paint, they have recently changed from being an invite only site to open registration. The only limitation is that you need to put up at least 4 projects of your own to be able to vote.

I decided to give it a go and have uploaded 4 ones and I got the Plus package as it was pretty cheap and gives you the option of including more photos and you can see how people have voted on your projects.

You can find my page at:

Books Galore

For a while I’ve been thinking of getting some more books about painting and I’ve started ordering some. This far I’ve got Color & Light and Imaginative Realism by James Gurney. Color Mixing Recipes and 1500 Color Mixing Recipes for Oil, Acrylic & Watercolor by William F Powell, The Philosophy of Art and last a book about Dadaism.

It should be a good starting point at least but I’m planning on adding some more later on.

  • Well your RSS feed still works ? it does look like the Realtors post images aren’t working though. Congrats on finishing the web love though, I know it can be a huge pain.

    I’ll have to check out p&p again, it seemed like a much nicer version of cmon but never got an invite. Also, let us know how the books go for you, I’ve been wanting to grab a few of those myself.

  • P&P is much better than CMON imo, I pulled my projects a year or so ago, too much down voting and other crap, and a company that refuses to adress even the smallest issues and it feels like they have stopped caring.
