Mea, I missed this thread but so wanted to thank you for taking on the newsletter and doing such an awesome job!  Your personal touch shows.
As for suggestions, this may be a strange one but I'll throw it out.  I wonder about posting a master painting or drawing in a different medium each month for inspiration.  I mention this because a friend of mine often does this on Facebook and it is so fun to see different paintings for inspiration regarding color combinations , line quality etc. and it is educational.  Linda Crank is an art historian and has a Facebook page where she has copies of master paintings and drawings that are copyright free because of their age.  A great source!!!!

I like your idea Lynn.
Cheers, Annie

Great idea.  I am just about to start the next issue today.  Thank you for your kind words about the new e-newsletter. I really enjoy being a part of Paint Basket on this level.

Hmm, since I want to make the e-newsletter as interactive as possible, I'll set it up so that the readers get to choose a favorite painting and send the info to me. 

Oh, you have me all excited about the prospects for this.

More to come in the newsletter.
