Olives by Chris Hobel in Fine Art and Decorative painting magazine
Another Publication, two in two weeks thats a record. Its always a surprise to receive a copy in the mail as preparation for copy is up to 12 months in advance. It should be in your newsagants now Vol 18, No 1. This is an easy one with lots of photos and instructions including the sketch
This is why I have been not blogging much recently.....this is a blog I forget to publish a few weeks ago 
"I have not blogged for a while as  Ive been too busy having fun with my family visiting, and celebrating birthdays but now that will come to end tomorrow and it will be back to the paints for another kind of fun. so happy to receive news that 2  of my paintings have sold out at Kenilworth and Ive been invited to have a feature exhibition of my Flowers and pleased as perhaps this may indicate the movement to better times for sunny coast artists. I love to paint flowers but have not done so for some time as sellers have been reluctant to promote them, beauty will win out in the end.

Digital marketing, How to paint a tuscan landscape latest publication by Chris Hobel

My Latest How to Publication in 
Fine Art and Decorative Painting Magazine  Vol 17, No 12
How to Paint a Tuscan Landscape with step by step photos  by Chris Hobel
Wow, it has been a log time between posts.
Ive broken my promise to myself and all my loyal followers, so sorry but I will try to not be so slack  in future.
I think its about 3 weeks since my last blog, reminds me of my true confessions but we wont go any further with that. 
As blogging is all about the present I thought I would just write  without too much deep thought as to content and just tell you what Ive been doing today.
The past is not relevent even thought Ive been very busy having fun and happy to say I sold a couple of paintings on my recent  birthday.
My goal is to stay healthy and fit so I can keep doing what I enjoy most, you guessed it painting at my easl and you certainly need to be fit for that so spend a chunk of each day just doing that keeping fit.
I started the day visiting the gym and continued on to Noosa Main beach for a few laps of the beach and home again by 9.30  and off again to the Noosa library for a very interesting seminar on Digital Marketing.
Although it was a promotion for a local business, it also was very useful and educational, adding a  bit more jargon to my repetroire
Being of the  older persuasion I need all the help I can get and enjoy keeping up as I trained as a graphic designer in the pre computer age. I think that is enough rambling. 
Now have to visit the doctor, pick up some paintings and the day will be pretty much over ... hopefully I will squeeze in some painting somewhere later on.

  I have just remembered Ive had a few articles published  recently so enjoy the pics. Talk Soon
