 Hi guys, for those of you who've asked about using my artwork, wallpapers, etc... for branding purposes but aren't sure how to do it or if you don't have a decent image editor, I'm going to put together a new tutorial  soon using a free online image editor I found that is easy to use but has some very advanced features.

 Until then, here is my new March wallpaper/calendar that you can use, edit or give away on any of your own sites / blogs.

 The image above is a preview of the March wallpaper/calendar we're giving away on my website  It's a photo of my latest painting...

 If you'd like to use this image on your own blog or site, you can either download it and give it away as is or feel free to add your own text. As always... People do not download wallpapers to see advertising on their computer screens so... less is more, keep it simple.

Here is an example...

branding, abstract art, WordPress design and consultation

 You can use just about any graphics editor to add your own text to this calendar/wallpaper. I wrote some tutorials about this back in August 2008 and I'll be doing more updated tutorials about graphics soon.

 The only thing I ask is that you don't edit my painting, name or domain.

 Other than that you're welcome to...

- use it on any of your websites or blogs

- as a give away by email or as a download directly from your site/blog

- you can add your name, domain or whatever you like

 Enjoy!!!

Kay... I think you'll love what I have "cooking on the back burner".

What a lovely picture to wake up to Marti. It just turned 7 here and it was so nice to see yet another generous gift from you.  Really neat stuff.   Question?  Is the oreo poll another FB thingy?

Gabe... thx, have a great Tuesday.

Anna... thx as well and no, the Oreo promo is part of a relatively new service I was invited to test out. I'm using it in a few places to check the stats before deciding if I like it.

Steve... hi there and thx, not everyone gets this kind of painting but I really appreciate those who can connect with it.

Suzanne... watch my website, we have some uber affordable mini originals and color studies coming out real soon. I'm sure the RE biz will turn around hopefully sooner than later, life is a cycle. I've had more than my share of ups and downs, I guess we all do. Later and thx for the really nice comment!

Thank you Marti - I absolutely had to do something different and with class on my second monitor I have come dependent on and discovered a neat little program "Display Fusiion" which I set up to have different displays on each monitor.  The Paint in Motion #5 calendar is great!
