So I up and vanished. Being a judge for Crystal Brush, Placing 3 (!!!) medals at World Expo, Another fabulous medal at Sword and Brus, My son's first competition.... all sorts of stuff and yet nothing here. Why?
All my images are hosted at a paid photobucket account. This year Photo bucket has decreed that they will no longer allow external linking unless you pay an exorbitant amount of money - Hundreds of dollars a year. I make zero dollars from this site and instead post to share and connect with my fellow painters. I cant pay $300+ a year to host photos. I also decided I wont be loading more things to their servers just to have to worry about having my photos held for ransom. So is this the end..... ?
Nah. Just need to figure out a different way :)
SO that's what I'm doing. pursuing different means of hosting and sharing images.
I have been planning/writing articles, new SBS tutorials and making some plans for how to showcase some previous tutorials that are still relevant but which many people may have lost into the depths of time and the interwebs.....
Not the end. A new beginning instead. It is coming.
