Why so Bland?


Yep, I know -- isn’t your typical artist-targeted web site. We don’t have a lot of painting images or colorful text in various font types and sizes. It's rather "corporate" looking. But there’s a reason behind the look.

Our goal is to be a resource for artists and collectors interested in paint outs and plein air art. A good resource is one that has valuable, relevant and well organized information. You should be able to find what you want quickly and move on – not hunt through page after page of distracting content for some small tidbit of information. Hopefully our new site does just that.

Our long term plans include making the site more visually appealing. But we’ll never sacrifice organization or ease-of-use for pizzazz or whimsy – well,  maybe a bit of whimsy now and then - you just never know.
