It could not have been a more beautiful September day today! The sky was a perfect cloudless blue, the trees are beginning to turn a red-green, no longer the deep blue-green of summer, the sunlight clear, the shadows deep and the fields abundant with wildflowers. Besides the old barns and farmhouse I particularly love the intertwining tall pine trees on the right.

"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer."

Helen Hunt Jackson, September, 1830-1885

Now for a little...

In January, I participated in the smArtist Telesummit, and one of the speakers was Alyson B. Stanfield, The ArtBiz Coach, and I love her! I have her book I'd Rather Be In The Studio! which I can highly recommend and would never be without.

A few days ago I received an e-mail from Alyson announcing her new class Culitvate Collectors:Get the Most from Your Contact List (& Reward Your Fans)

I have already registered for this 18 day class and I am very excited about it! I am so convinced that Alyson is a vital resource for artists that I am part of her affiliate program and help spread the word to artists about her products. It also means that if you use the link above to purchase her book or register for the class I'll earn a few dollars for my art supply piggy bank! So thanks in advance!

I'm looking forward to sharing information and comparing notes with other class participants, and hopefully that will include you!
