Time for a Change

My blog has been up and running since 2007.  It started as "Color On" which featured my colored pencil work, then I merged my textile blog "In Stitches" with it, as one blog was enough to keep track of.

Next my one and only blog became "Littleton Studio" which was fitting because I worked out of my home in Littleton, CO.  The textile/fabric posts went away entirely because I became too busy with my artwork.  I had begun studying pastels with Deborah Bays and my blog posts were all about my pastel work.

In March 2010 my blog became "Golden Point One" because my studio moved into a funky little motel space in Golden, CO with June Davis.  I'm still in Golden at the studio with June and will be for as long as we can make it work...we love having a studio together.  Last December my blog took a distinctive turn to daily painting.

But it is now time for another change. I'm going to change the name of my blog (and the look).  My blog will now become just me "Cynthia Haase Fine Art". I'm also changing the template of my blog to lighten the black background to something a bit less contrast-y. 

Because you can't have a blog post without a picture, I'll share this caricature of me.
It was drawn by colored pencil artist, Debra Yaun, at the Dallas Convention July 2011.

I hope you have enjoyed the ride.  As I told my mom the other night on the phone (she's 82 and very spunky)..."I'm not winding down as I get older, I'm winding up for a wild ride to the end."

I like the look of your new site, and I was glad that my link to your site still works. I've been considering changing the name of my blog and wondered if I would have to start a new blog in order to use a new name. It looks like you were able to retain the original site with the historical postings. I think I'll give it a try. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
