Life has its ups and downs - with lots of twists and turns - rather like a rollercoaster.
I normally have a short break at the beginning of the New Year. This year it is complicated by the fact that transfer of my resources for artists sites from one host to another now appears to be unravelling in a major way.
I really have no time for websites which say one thing and then do another. Credibility and trust are important attributes when delivering a service.
I'm now looking to move all my content again so I can regain control over it! Hence short break in posting and possibly more short breaks in the future.
As a result I am now reviewing options for how and where to put my information sites in future and currently exploring SquareSpace - which does its level best to look like "the Apple of website provision".
In the meantime I'm admiring the roller coaster effect of my brand new whacky wavy wooden box for my new set of 60 LIGHTFAST coloured pencils by Talens Rembrandt. Talens were one of the original two companies who participated in the coloured pencils lightfastness trials run by the ASTM Subcommittee D01.57 on Artist Paints and Related Materials which produced the Lightfastness Standard for Coloured Pencils and which is currently working on one for Pastels.
I've been banging on about lightfastness for years - and I became a member of that Committee a while back.
