The Beach

Hey Internet! If you are in the Bay Area I wanted to tell you about the art show where Paul is showing his recent works. The opening reception is this Friday, July 12, 2013 from 6pm-9pm at Incline Gallery 766 Valencia St, San Francisco. The pieces are mostly large scale modern beach paintings. I took a peek at them in the studio yesterday and I’m so excited for everyone to see them. The reception will have drinks and hors d’oeuvres and we’ll be there to meet everyone. The show will also be open that weekend July 13 & 14 from 11am to 6pm. Please stop by if you are around!

RSS Feed

If you’re like me, you’ve been dreading this week for months. Starting Monday, Google Reader is done. Meaning, we all have to migrate to a new platform. I finally decided to switch to Feedly, and was super surprised at how easy the transition was. They’ve made it super-easy to transfer my whole blog roll over in a few quick clicks. For the most part, the functionality is the same – even though it looks a little different. What about you? Are you a Google Reader user? What platform will you be using now? And, if you’re on Feedly, you can sign up for Oh Happy Day right here!

Father’s Day Commission Project

I’m excited to announce another Commission Project just in time for Father’s Day. The Commission Project works like this: purchase a painting here and choose your frame color, send in a photo by Wednesday May 15th, then wait by your mailbox. A finished painting by Paul Ferney, framed and ready to hang will be shipped by June 10th. These make really great gifts! Here are some of my favorite pictures below. There are a very limited number of spots this time (half sold out in the first hour.) Updated: This round is sold out but if you want to be the first to hear about this in the future sign up for the email list right here.


Alt for Everyone

I’m going to be teaching a class at Alt for Everyone about growing your blog traffic. It will be similar to the talk I gave at ALT SLC in 2012. Alt for Everyone is an online blogging conference so you can go to it in your pajamas! At the end of my talk I’m going to smash a cake in my face so if nothing I say is very interesting that might be worth watching. There are lots of great speakers! Sign up here.
