Sunday after the Art Erotica I was back at the AVAA for the figure drawing. This is where I learned some consider referring to an AIDS charity benefit as a "sausage fest" to be bad manners. I still think it's funny. I've also made a few tweaks to this website. I installed the All In One SEO Pack plugin to optimize it for search engines as well as Statpress Reloaded to track my visitor statistics. I check it far too many times a day. I get all excited when I see a hit on my site from a Google Image search for "drippy paintings." I also put up an icon for the RSS feed. Because, evidently, people use them.
Monday I painted at the Austin Figurative Gallery. Every third Monday we've started to do 2 hour poses instead of a bunch of 15 minute ones. It's nice to have the extra time. Here's the result. It's an acrylic painting on a gessoed piece of plywood.
Next on the list for site tweaks, I need to figure out a way to encourage more comments and redo the galleries.
