DJ Geribo's Art Apart Newsletter

Art Apart — Vol. 1 / Issue 2

Welcome to DJ Geribo's Art Apart Newsletter!  I hope you enjoyed my first newsletter and checked out all my Daily Paintings — Animals on my website. I've been busy, continuing with this project, and have many more paintings on my website. And the good news is, I'm selling! If you see a red dot on one of my paintings, that painting has been sold! This is a wonderful experience for me since I'm defining my painting style with this project. Although I'll be the first one to exclaim over the beauty of photo realistic art, I believe a painting should look like a painting, not a photograph, and that is the style I am developing. I hope you enjoy my work. And if you do, I hope you will share my newsletter with your family and friends.

Tips for Artists

Pastels — Pastels are known for their ease of use, portability, and blendability.  The main problem with pastels is their dust.   Since pastels are pure pigment held together with a little binder the dust can be toxic and so precautions should be taken to protect yourself by wearing a mask and gloves or skin protector cream for your hands.  Also, wear an art smock to keep your clothes dust-free and if possible, work with good ventilation or have an air purifier installed in your studio space. (Of course, once a pastel is framed, which they should always be, there is no health risk for the owner of the painting).
